Last week, White Coat Waste Project (WCW) honored five members of the Florida congressional delegation with its 2020 Waste Warrior Awards for their leadership in combating wasteful and cruel taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, cats, and other animals.
WCW is a 3 million-member taxpayer watchdog group working to find, expose and defund more than $20 billion in wasteful taxpayer-funded animal experiments.
Four members of the Florida delegation–Republican U.S. Reps. Vern Buchanan, Matt Gaetz and Brian Mast and Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz–are now two-time winners of the award. U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., is now a first-time award winner.
Justin Goodman, the vice president of advocacy and public policy at taxpayer watchdog group White Coat Waste Project, weighed in last week on the members of the Florida delegation his group honored.
“Representatives Buchanan, Gaetz, Mast, Posey and Wasserman Schultz are all champions for animals and taxpayers. We are proud to honor them with well-deserved Waste Warrior Awards for their outstanding leadership to expose and end wasteful and cruel government experiments on dogs, cats, and other animals that are rightly opposed by most taxpayers. We look forward to continuing to work with these Waste Warriors to save more tax dollars and animals from government abuse,” Goodman said.
