Guardian awards are given to U.S. Representatives who vote favorably on key small business issues at least 70 percent of the time.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) was recently honored by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) with their “Guardian of Small Business” Award for his support of pro-free market policies in the 111th Congress.
The National Federation of Independent Business is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that advocates on behalf of America’s millions of small businesses. NFIB based its ranking on seven votes in the House in 2009 and 2010, including votes against ObamaCare and legislation that would stifle free speech by imposing strict campaign disclosure requirements on certain special interest groups.
“Small businesses are the engine of our economy in Southwest Florida and across the state, but have become a target of the Democratic Leadership for more regulations and higher taxes,” Mack said. “I’m honored to be recognized by the National Federation of Independent Business with this award, and I’ll continue to pursue policies that make it easier for small businesses – and not the government – to create jobs.”
“In the 111th Congress, Representative Connie Mack proved that he is a champion of small business. The Guardian of Small Business Award is a token of the deep appreciation that small business owners have for elected officials who promote and protect their right to own, operate and grow their businesses,” said Dan Danner, the president and CEO of NFIB.
