Washington, D. C. — Congressman Max Burns (R-GA) has earned a Lawmaker of the Month Award from the 60 Plus Association, a national senior citizens organization.
60 Plus, a 10-year-old nonpartisan group, honors Democrats and Republicans alike for their pro-senior initiatives. 60 Plus designated Representative Burns as a recipient of the award for the month of August.
60 Plus President Jim Martin said in a statement accompanying the award: “Congressman Burns has been someone who senior citizens can count on. Seniors have no finer friend than Congressman Burns. He has been a leader on so many senior citizen initiatives time and time again, such as:
(1) Supporting a prescription drug benefit for senior citizens;
(2) Voting to kill the death tax which hurts small business and farmers;
(3) Supporting efforts to eliminate earnings limit imposed on seniors between the ages 62-64;
(4) Supporting long term care insurance tax incentive.
“Congressman Burns deserves this ‘Lawmaker of the Month’ recognition. Seniors can count on Max Burns. He is a leader of retiree healthcare initiatives for all seniors, including crafting a prescription drug benefit plan,” said Martin.
