WASHINGTON, DC-The United States Chamber of Commerce today presented Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC-10) with its annual “Spirit of Enterprise” award for his strong voting record on critical business issues in the second session of the 109th Congress.
“Rep. McHenry proved to be a valuable ally to the business community last year, supporting measures to stimulate job creation and spur economic growth,” said Tom Donohue, Chamber president and CEO. “The business community appreciates Patrick’s dedication to a pro-growth agenda and we are proud to present him with this award.”
The Chamber’s prestigious “Spirit of Enterprise” award is given annually to members of Congress based on rankings it gives for key business votes outlined in its yearly publication, “How They Voted.” Rep. McHenry compiled a 93% score with the Chamber last year and holds a cumulative 91% ranking during his tenure in Congress.
Hat Tip: NC Rumors
I also note that our former Congressman Charles Taylor also was recognized with the same award, and I would like to acknowledge that achievement.
It seems unlikely that our current Congressman will be so recognized due to denying the right to a secret ballot by workers faced with union thuggery. I have faced these thugs before, and met their violence with violence. [Reminder to self: tell story after statute of limitations is past.]
