PoliticalNews.me - Sep 27,2010 - WASHINGTON - Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) was recognized by two leading advocacy groups for his support of small business and taxpayers.
The National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC) honored Duncan with its Tax Fighter Award while the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) named Duncan a Guardian of Small Business for his work in the current 111th Congress.
“If we don’t over-tax and over-regulate our Nation, it could boom beyond belief,” Duncan said. “The waste found in private business pales in comparison to the waste found in government, and the worst thing you could do with taxpayer money is invest it in more government. The more money we can leave in the private sector, the more it is going to help the poor and lower income and working people because it will do more to hold down prices and create more jobs.”
The NFIB Guardian of Small Business awards are given to Members of Congress who vote favorably on key small business issues at least 70% of the time.
Rep Duncan’s votes on tax and spending issues in the 111th Congress earned him an ‘A’ grade and the Tax Fighter Award from the NTLC.
NTLC President Lewis K. Uhler said, “Congressman Duncan has led the battle on behalf of taxpayers to stop the passage of ObamaCare and cap-and-trade legislation, to make the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent, to eliminate the death tax, to kill the Alternative Minimum Tax, to provide incentives for private savings, investment and job creation and to control the growth of federal spending.”
