The National Taxpayers Union has released a scorecard for the 2008 Presidential candiates. This only includes those who have served in Congress, so we don’t get any information about Giuliani and Romney. Oh well.
How did Sam Brownback do? Let’s just say his parents will be taking him out for ice cream. He got an A (84%) and was given a “Taxpayers’ Friend Award.“ By way of comparison, how did the Democrats do? Every single one got an F. I guess they’re grounded.
Update: In 2004, the NTU also gave Senator Brownback an A (78%) and presented him with their “Taxpayers’ Friend Award.”
Senator Brownback also received the award in 2001 with another A (85%).
Another award was garnered in 1999 with yet another A (79%).
I think it can be said that Senator Brownback is indeed a friend of American taxpayers.
