Rand Paul receives award from National Taxpayers Union

The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) this week honored U.S. Senator Rand Paul with its 2015 “Taxpayers’ Friend Award” for his commitment to fiscal responsibility, limited government, and lower taxes in the first session of the 114th Congress.

“It’s a privilege to speak out for Kentuckians by saying ‘no’ to deeper debt and higher taxes,” said Dr. Paul. “Every vote against failed status-quo policies is a vote for more opportunity, more growth, and more prosperity for Kentucky, and I’m pleased to be named a ‘Taxpayers’ Friend’ by the National Taxpayers Union.”

“Winning the Taxpayers’ Friend Award is no easy feat,” said NTU President Pete Sepp. “It takes a daily commitment to cast principled votes that put the Americans who pay government’s bills first.”

NTU based its “Taxpayer Score” on 141 Senate and 267 House votes that affected fiscal policy in 2015, with Dr. Paul receiving an “A” rating for his consistent record. Only 57 members of Congress were recognized with the “Taxpayers’ Friend Award” for 2015.
