WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today received the Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award from the 60 Plus Association, a non-partisan seniors advocacy group focusing on free enterprise, limited government, and less taxes.
“I am honored to once again receive the Guardian of Seniors’ Rights Award,” said Inhofe. “I appreciate the way the 60 Plus Association represents seniors in our nation’s capitol while advocating for greater freedoms, less government, and lower taxes.”
60 Plus Chairman Jim Martin said, “Thankfully it’s Members of Congress like Jim Inhofe who show caring concern towards our senior population, the very ones who have sacrificed all these years and who now face uncertain retirements due to the impending bankruptcy of their entitlement programs. Senator Inhofe has also pledged to work hard to halt out of control spending of hard earned tax dollars in order to right our fiscal ship before it sinks from tons of heavy debt. On behalf of 7.1 million seniors that 60 Plus looks to for support, seniors know you’re in our corner. Senator Inhofe, you have earned our respect and our appreciation. 60 Plus thanks you.”
