Americans for Tax Reform Names Miller "Hero of the Taxpayer"
Dec 31, 2007 -
Congressman Jeff Miller (FL-01) received the "Hero of the Taxpayer" award from Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) for 2007.
In order to receive this award, members of Congress must consistently vote with and represent the interests of American taxpayers. ATR records the way the members vote on the twenty most important bills and issues for taxpayers across the country. Critical votes during the 110th Congress include Alternative Minimum Tax Relief bills, the Employee Free Choice Act, and the Fair Minimum Wage Act.
Winners of this award must vote in the interest of American taxpayers at least 85% of the time. Congressman Miller received a 90% rating from ATR.
ATR has issued its congressional scorecard since 1994, and has granted its awards annually since then. A complete list of Hero of the Taxpayer award recipients, as well as a complete list of votes ATR considered for the awards and their respective explanations, can be viewed on ATR's website at: http://www.atr.org/national/ratings/index.html.
Americans for Tax Reform is a non-partisan coalition of taxpayers and taxpayer groups who oppose all federal and state tax increases. For more information or to arrange an interview.
