More than 40 members of Congress will attend The Heritage Foundation’s three-day Conservative Members Retreat this week. Lawmakers and their families will learn about and discuss conservative thought and the practical application of conservative principles to legislation.
Heritage’s top policy experts will be onsite to explain conservative solutions and develop relationships with the lawmakers. Some of the Heritage scholars attending include: marriage expert Ryan Anderson, first principles expert David Azerrad, family policy expert Jennifer Marshall, education expert Lindsey Burke, energy expert Nick Loris, and health care expert Nina Owcharenko.
To get America back to greatness, we need to change the bad policies that have limited freedom, increased spending and debt, weakened our defenses, ignored the Constitution, and allowed further government intrusion into our personal lives. That’s why Heritage makes such an effort to educate lawmakers and ensure they understand the merits of conservative policies.
Do you think it’s important to build relationships upon a shared understanding of conservative principles with lawmakers?
