Arizona’s Franks Named Biggest Spending Cutter in U.S. House

We need many, many more champions of the taxpayer, like Arizona Congressman Trent Franks …

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-Congressional District 8) has been named the biggest spending cutter in the entire U.S. House of Representatives, according the a recent report released by the National Taxpayers’ Union Foundation, which tallies Representatives’ individual votes and how much they would ultimately add or subtract from the federal deficit.

According to Pete Sepp, Executive Vice President of the National Taxpayers’ Union Foundation, “Last year, House members with legislative agendas to increase federal spending outnumbered those who would reduce spending, while fewer still proposed to cut the budget by more than $100 billion. Congressman Franks far exceeded this level of spending restraint. If all lawmakers had sponsored agendas similar in savings to that of Congressman Franks, the federal budget deficit would likely be significantly lower than it is today.”

Franks said, “The primary role of government in the economy is to foster a secure, predictable, and trustworthy national venue, and then simply get out of the way of free enterprise and let the people produce. This means less regulation, less taxes, less intrusion into private markets and business, and less federal spending.

“I am honored to have been named the biggest spending cutter in the House of Representatives and strive to chart a course that ensures my children get to walk in the sunlight of freedom in the same America in which I was born and raised. And that means ensuring our nation doesn’t spend itself into oblivion.”
