Uhler stated, “Congressman Barton’s votes on tax and spending issues in the 112th Congress earned him an ‘A’ grade and the Tax Fighter Award.”
“Congressman Barton has led the battle on behalf of taxpayers to repeal Obamacare, to block cap-and-trade legislation, to make the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent, to eliminate the death tax, to kill the Alternative Minimum Tax, to provide incentives for private savings, investment and job creation and to control the growth of federal spending.”
