Rep. Black with Jason Pye, Vice President of Legislative Affairs at FreedomWorks
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06), previously named the most conservative woman in the House of Representatives by the American Conservative Union, was today recognized by nationally renowned conservative grassroots organization FreedomWorks for her voting record in 2016. FreedomWorks specifically recognized Congressman Black’s work to repeal and replace Obamacare, cut government overspending, and roll back President Obama’s job killing regulations in presenting her with the “FreedomFighter Award.”
Black released the following statement in accepting the award:
“It’s a privilege to fight alongside FreedomWorks to achieve conservative wins for the American people. Our constituents gave Republicans the House majority to get something done. They wanted us to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. Tennesseans get up every day. They work hard to earn a good income, to provide for their families and to achieve the American dream. I am working hard to end the era of big, bloated federal government that is crushing these dreams for far too many. This FreedomWorks award recognizes conservative Members of Congress who have put into action their conservative principles, even when it means opposing their party’s leadership. I am proud to be counted among this group."
