Inside the ring road: the Heritage Foundation gets fierce

The Heritage Foundation has released a set of strategic policy priorities intended to form “the roadmap for Conservatives over the next three years,” according to a mission statement released Thursday. The organization says the roadmap presents a “once in a lifetime opportunity”.

Curious? The Conservative think tank doesn’t mince words here.

“Americans deserve so much better than the radical, destructive and divisive policies of the Biden administration and the far left. They deserve an agenda that puts them, their families and their interests above the interests of coastal and globalist elites,” said Kevin Robertsthe President of Heritage, and Jessica Andersonexecutive director of Heritage Action, a national grassroots group with 2 million members.

“They deserve leaders who will fight on their behalf at the state and federal levels. That is why Heritage will spend the coming years fiercely advocating for vital reforms and policy changes, especially in those areas that matter most to Americans across the country,” the pair said in a joint statement. .

“It is high time for the United States to resist the pernicious and destabilizing influence of the Chinese Communist Party, both at home and abroad. It’s time for parents, not teacher unions and woke bureaucrats, to make the best educational choices for their children. We must secure our borders, restore law and order to our communities, hold Big Tech to account, protect the right to life of unborn children, secure our elections, and rein in Washington’s reckless and wasteful spending that drives inflation. record,” they advised.

“If conservatives work together, make our case to the American people, and hold our policymakers accountable, we can seize this unique opportunity to restore American greatness and save our republic,” they concluded.
