Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side: my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right."

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce presented Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D. (TN-04) with the annual “Spirit of Enterprise” Award for his support of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies during the second session of the 112th Congress.
“In the face of high-stakes politics and difficult choices, Congressman DesJarlais provided America’s job creators with a strong voice in Congress,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. “This award recognizes Congressman DesJarlais for consistently demonstrating his support for pro-growth policies.”
The Chamber’s prestigious “Spirit of Enterprise” Award, in its 25th year, is given annually to members of Congress based on key business issues outlined in the Chamber publication How They Voted. Members who support the Chamber’s position on at least 70% of those votes qualify to receive the award.
According to the scorecard, Congressman DesJarlais received a 100% rating with the Chamber this year and collectively holds a 97% ranking during his tenure in Congress.
“Creating jobs has always been job number one for my office,” said Representative Scott DesJarlais. “Since being elected to Congress, I have focused on eliminating bureaucratic red tape, controlling government spending and reforming our broken tax code so businesses can thrive and employ more people. I want to thank the numerous small businesses in Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District who have partnered with us in working to create an environment that will lead to greater economic prosperity in our state and all across America.”
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers.
