Idaho's two most experienced lawmakers — Republican Sen. Mike Crapo and 2nd District GOP Rep. Mike Simpson — have been named to the inaugural class of 32 "Fiscal Heroes" in Congress by the Campaign to Fix the Debt.
The award was announced last week by the non-partisan group based in Washington, D.C. "Fiscal Heroes," according to the group, take fiscally responsible votes, push their leaders to make debt a priority, lead bipartisan efforts and educate constituents by "advocating to keep tough choices on the table."
Fix the Debt supports entitlement reform and tax reform to put the nation's $17 trillion debt "on a downward path in the long-term and allow the economy to thrive." More here. Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesmen
Well? Are they your fiscal heroes?
