Tauzin Consultants is principally a government relations, business development and business incubation firm, specializing in the areas of health care, financial services, energy and environment, telecommunications, transportation, and infrastructure development. The firm also works in the many other commercial and political arenas in which Congressman Tauzin has broad and deep experience over a 34-year career in elected office and a 5-½ year career leading one of the nation’s most prominent and powerful trade associations. Our consultants include former U.S. Congressman Wilbert J. "Billy" Tauzin, Thomas N. Tauzin, John Blount, and Liz Williams. Launched in January 2011, the firm actively serves clients from coast-to-coast, demonstrating its position as a nationally recognized firm capable of serving diverse clientele. Congressman Tauzin brings a wealth of expertise to Tauzin Consultants. Congressman Tauzin served 25 years in the U.S. Congress representing the 3rd Congressional District of Louisiana, following nine years in the Louisiana House of Representatives. Congressman Tauzin is the only U.S. representative ever to serve in the leadership of both national parties, having served 15 years as a Democrat and co-founder of the Democratic Blue Dogs, and 10 years as a Republican, chairing the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee for the last years of his Congressional service. During his career, Congressman Tauzin also chaired the Coast Guard Committee of the Merchant Marine and Fisherman Committee, heading the investigation of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, and the Telecommunications Subcommittee, leading the effort to authorize satellite television and the digital conversion. Among many of his Energy and Commerce activities, Congressman Tauzin led the House investigation of Exxon, WorldCom, among others, and in 2003 helped lead the successful effort to enact the Medicare Modernization Act and with it the Part D program for senior drug coverage. The congressman also produced many energy, pipeline, and transportation bills and even conducted a 40-city debate tour with former Congressman Dick Armey entitled the Armey-Tauzin “Scrap the Code Tour” aimed at finding a suitable substitute for the U.S. IRS Code. After successfully battling a killer cancer in 2004, Congressman Tauzin joined PhRMA as president and CEO through June 2010. Thomas N. Tauzin focuses on health care, information technology (IT), finance, telecommunications, energy, and transportation affairs. Prior to starting Tauzin Consultants, Thomas was a Vice President at Capitol Hill Consulting Group, another government relations firm in Washington, DC. Here, he honed his expertise on a number of critical issues including online security and access and health information technology. Before joining Capitol Hill Consulting Group, Thomas served as Senior Vice President of Business Development for iMedicor, a physician and patient portal focusing on improving health information exchange by providing free secure messaging amongst members. Previously, Thomas worked for Clear Channel Entertainment UK (now Live Nation UK) as International Director of Instant Live where he co-designed a modular studio for mixing, recording, duplicating and selling live albums and DVDs in real-time and on the same night of a concert. Thomas co-produced the albums and DVDs and was also involved in negotiating contracts with artists and labels and the financial accounting of each project. Thomas’s first full-time job was an equity trader with Instinet Corporation. After acquiring his Series 7, 55 and 63 licenses, Thomas was assigned to the buy-side working order desk where he traded a full range of equities on behalf of clients around the globe. He later held positions with Instinet on the sell-side as an account manager and directing sales from Delaware to Florida to Texas. Thomas earned his B.A. in Finance from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 2000. John Blount brings vast expertise in the areas of financial services, aviation, defense, and health care. Mr. Blount’s clients have benefited over the years from his tenure on Capitol Hill where he is currently considered one of the leading consultants in Washington. Mr. Blount served as a senior aide to three Members of the House of Representatives. He later joined the world’s largest trade association, the National Association of Realtors (NAR), where he served as the organization’s top Capitol Hill lobbyist. During that time, Mr. Blount worked extensively with the House Ways and Means Committee, the House Financial Institutions Committee, Energy and Commerce Committee, the Senate Finance and Banking Committees and had full authority over the organization’s efforts within the Executive Branch. In addition, he was responsible for maintaining the 800,000 member grassroots organization and administered a $4 million PAC. After a decade with the NAR, Mr. Blount headed the lobbying efforts for the Association of Private Pension and Welfare Plans where he concentrated on health care and pension issues of interest to the organization’s Fortune 500 members. Mr. Blount joined Tauzin Consultants after serving as the Senior Vice President of the Capitol Hill Consulting Group and has since continued representing a diverse client base that includes the Committee to Save Independent HME Suppliers, Debt Buyers Association, Industrial Safety Training Council, SCAN Health Plan, The Bituminous Coal Operations Association, Coalition Against Online Banking Fraud, Global Security Management, and many others. Mr. Blount currently resides in Alexandria with his wife, Betty. Liz Williams has more than 16 years of fundraising and advocacy experience on Capitol Hill crafting integrated government relations and communications strategies aimed at shaping public policy. Ms. Williams started her career at the National Republican Congressional Committee raising funds for Members of Congress and Congressional candidates and has a strong, continued network of relationships at the NRCC and NRSC. She has also worked in the non-profit and private sector as a House Liaison at The Heritage Foundation and as the founding PAC Director at Van Scoyoc Associates, Inc. Liz served as a Federal Liaison at the National Rifle Association for over 5 years with the responsibility for advocating NRA’s federal interests to Members of the US Senate and House of Representatives. Most recently, Liz founded Williams & Company where she serviced clients across the legislative spectrum relating to, healthcare, federal appropriations, Department of Defense issues and Interior matters involving sportsmen issues. Liz gives back to the Capitol Hill community where she serves on the board of the Capitol Hill Club and is the past president of the Washington, DC Chapter of Safari Club International and serves on the board of the Government Affairs and SCI-PAC committee’s at the National level. Liz’s move to Tauzin Consultants, where she will be a Principal in the firm, allows her to use their vast strategic network to further her client’s objectives. Ms. Williams received her B.A. in Marking-Advertising from the University of Mississippi and currently lives in Arlington, Virginia.

Partisan redrawing of electoral lines means lawmakers today come from such politically pure, one-party congressional districts, it's difficult for them to cooperate in Washington, a former U.S. representative told Newsmax TV on Friday.

Tauzin, Breaux: Anti-fraud savings should satisfy super committee
October 18, 2011
Inside Health Policy

The super committee can achieve satisfactory savings from combating waste and fraud in Medicare and Medicare without cutting services or payments to providers, argued former House Energy and Commerce Chair and Billy Tauzin and former Sen. John Breaux on Tuesday (Oct. 18), both of whom are now industry lobbyists.

Tauzin, a lobbyist for home health who previously advocated for the drug industry, argued that new technologies now allow Congress to combat fraud in a way that was not possible 10 years ago. “You can satisfy the requirements of the super committee” without having to touch areas that affect seniors and disabled people, he claimed.

Breaux noted that CMS had recouped $70 billion in improper payments in 2010. “That's $700 billion over 10 years,” he said. “If we can eliminate $700 billion in waste from the program, you wouldn't have to be looking for substantial cuts.”

The widespread calls for the super committee to focus on the uncontroversial area of fraud reflects concerns among providers that the deficit-reducing panel may cut from their share of the pie.
