Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., received accolades recently from the 60 Plus Association for his strong support of America's seniors.

Enzi received two awards from 60 Plus at a Capitol Hill ceremony honoring him for his "senior-friendly" voting record and legislative proposals.

Enzi was presented with the Ben Franklin Award given to those who favor repealing the death tax, a 55 percent tax on assets that must be paid before beneficiaries of the deceased can receive an inheritance.

"Clearly Sen. Enzi is a proven fighter for seniors," says 60 Plus Association President Jim Martin, noting that Enzi has also received the Association's Guardian Award.

According to its website, 60 Plus, a non-partisan seniors advocacy group with a free enterprise, less taxes, less government approach to seniors issues has set repealing the death tax as one of its top priorities as well as saving Social Security for the next generation.

"With the misinformation surrounding this issue, Sen. Enzi is to be commended for assuring senior citizens that he will always protect Social Security," said Martin.
