Rep. Meadows Wins FreedomFighter Award
Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) was one of 56 House members to receive the 2016 “FreedomFighter Award” from FreedomWorks. The award, presented to select members of Congress annually, “recognizes members of the House and Senate who consistently vote to support economic freedom and individual liberty.” Congressman Meadows received a 100% ranking on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard.
Rep. Meadows released the following statement:
“I’m honored to receive the FreedomFighter Award and want to thank the outstanding individuals at FreedomWorks for their tireless efforts on behalf of defending freedom and liberty,” Rep. Meadows said. “In a time when our government rarely holds to the principles that made this nation exceptional, organizations like FreedomWorks play a critical role in holding our elected officials accountable and educating voters on how to keep us to our word.
As I’ve often said, this job has never been about me—my voting card belongs to the people of Western North Carolina. Regardless of what happens here, I will always listen to their voices first.”
In a press release, FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon said the following:
“FreedomWorks activists across the country can be proud of these members’ votes last year. They showed a commitment to economic liberty and individual freedom. With a Republican in the White House and so many big legislative items on the to-do list in this Congress, including fundamental tax reform and reducing regulation, conservative grassroots activists are watching our scorecard to see who delivers on their campaign promises and who changes their tune.”
