Maggie Hassan Earns Award For Fiscal Responsibility

June 22, 2022

U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-New Hampshire) has earned an award for fiscal responsibility.

Hassan was named a 2022 Fiscal Hero by Fix the Debt, an organization that strives to fix the national debt.

“Senator Hassan has led bipartisan efforts to strengthen fiscal responsibility and improve the federal budget process. We are proud to name her a Fiscal Hero and applaud her for her commitment to getting our nation on a more sustainable fiscal path,” Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and head of Fix the Debt, said in a press release.

Hassan’s office touted what they see as her commitment to fiscal responsibility:

 

Senator Hassan has focused on fiscal responsibility and cutting waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer dollars in the federal government – working across the aisle to cut more than $200 billion in wasteful spending and reduce the debt. For instance, in 2019, President Trump signed into law bipartisan legislation introduced by Senators Hassan and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to close a loophole in the Medicaid rebate program that results in big pharmaceutical companies overcharging taxpayers. The bipartisan legislation will save taxpayers approximately $3.1 billion over the next 10 years. 

 

Hassan is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate this year. She is the favorite to win the Democratic primary in September. Eight Republicans are running in the GOP primary to take on Hassan in the November 2022 general election.
