Washington, DC— Thursday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious Spirit of Enterprise Award for his strong 2018 record of support for Free Enterprise and opposition to its mortal enemy, Socialism. The Spirit of Enterprise Award is given annually to members of Congress based on rankings the U.S. Chamber gives for key pro-Free Enterprise, pro-economic growth, pro-jobs votes.

Congressman Brooks said, “A battle rages in America between Free Enterprise and its mortal enemy, Socialism. I’m thankful to be recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, one of America’s premiere Free Enterprise organizations, for my efforts for Free Enterprise and against evil Socialism. History proves that Free Enterprise is the path to a nation’s prosperity while Socialism is deadly and ultimately leads to tyranny and human misery. The U.S. Chamber is a key ally for pro-Free Enterprise members of Congress who are fighting the Socialist onslaught led by radical Socialist Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”

The U.S. Chamber scored 12 house votes in the second session of the 116th Congress including lessening the regulatory burden on business and key tax repeals. Senators and House members who supported the Chamber of Commerce’s position on at least 70% of these key votes received the Spirit of Enterprise award.
