Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07) was recently honored by National Taxpayers Union (NTU) for having one of the strongest voting records in Washington, D.C. for supporting limited government, economic freedom, and low taxes. This year, Congressman Rouzer is one of only 33 House members to have earned the “Taxpayers’ Friend Award” for his outstanding voting record during the 2020 Congressional session.
Additionally, Congressman Rouzer was named a “Taxpayer Super Hero” by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) for his votes to cut wasteful government spending in 2020. Rouzer is one of 80 House members to earn the perfect score of 100% on their scorecard.
“Our national debt exceeds $28.1 trillion, and Democrats continue with their reckless spending, paying no regard for the debts we are pushing onto future generations,” said Rep. Rouzer. “We must make bold changes to address the national debt – the most significant domestic threat that our country faces. I’m proud of my voting record to put the hardworking American taxpayer first, strengthen our economy, and to get our country back on track.”
“The pandemic created unprecedented challenges for our nation -- and for taxpayers,” said Pete Sepp, President of NTU. “Despite these difficult circumstances, taxpayers should know that Rep. Rouzer continued to support fiscal discipline and responsible governance. Now more than ever, we need leaders like Rep. Rouzer to get our nation’s finances back in order and help restore our prosperity. National Taxpayers Union thanks Rep. Rouzer for his efforts on behalf of the people who pay government's bills."
“We applaud Rep. Rouzer for his perfect 100 percent Taxpayer Super Hero rating in 2020,” said Tom Schatz, President of Council for Citizens Against Government Waste. “His courageous votes to cut wasteful spending and make government more accountable should serve as an example to other members, challenging them to protect the fiscal interests of American taxpayers. We have no doubt that Rep. Rouzer will continue to help lead the effort to eradicate wasteful spending and bring fiscal sanity to Washington. His constituents should be very proud of him.”
