Arrington for his perfect 100 percent Taxpayer Super Hero rating in 2020,”said Council for Citizens Against Government Waste President Tom Schatz.“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. Arrington 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.”
“Jodey has been a consistent champion in the fight to protect taxpayer dollars,”said Ways and Means Ranking Member Kevin Brady.“As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, he’s helped us pass crucial legislation to lower taxes, cut wasteful spending, and fight government waste.
