WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a leading fiscal conservative, today received the 2010 Defender of Economic Freedom Award by the Club for Growth. This annual award from the Club for Growth is presented to Members of Congress who consistently exercise fiscal restraint and possess a pro-economic voting record.
“I am honored to once again receive the Defender of Economic Freedom Award by the Club for Growth,” said Inhofe. “It is my priority to ensure that Congress stops reckless spending and focuses on rebuilding our nation’s economy. We must stop our deficit spending while making sure the private sector is free to create jobs and grow the economy."
“With his score of 93 percent, Inhofe has demonstrated that he is on the side of economic freedom not just at election time, but every time,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “The Club for Growth values Members of Congress who stand on principle over political expediency. The people of Oklahoma are lucky to have strong pro-growth representation in Congress.”
