If the Founders could see the federal government in operation, they would think we had written a new Constitution!

Restoring limited, constitutional government is essential now more than ever. Heritage expert David Azerrad said Tuesday:

  1. American citizens and lawmakers alike are appallingly ill-educated about the Constitution and America’s first principles
  2. Progressive elites either despise the Constitution or treat it as an empty vessel to carry out their agenda
  3. Our federal government today operates largely outside of the structure of checks and balances the Founders originally designed.

That’s why, thanks to your support, Heritage’s is launching a new research institute: the Institute for Constitutional Government.

This Institute is the conservative movement’s new command center for restoring the U.S. government as the Founders envisioned it. It exists to educate the public in innovative new ways, combat apathy and misunderstanding, and empower every American – including and especially our elected officials – with the analysis they need to fight for the constitutional separation of powers.

Empowering the next generation of leaders and citizens with the principles of constitutional government is critical to restoring our country. And you make this work possible.

Watch the video of the Institute’s Tuesday launch, including remarks from Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT).

What are other ways we can work to restore constitutional government in our country?

Yesterday, President-elect Donald Trump shared an article from Heritage’s Daily Signal on his Facebook page. The article analyzes how Trump’s cabinet selections compare to the presidents of the past 40 years.

The Daily Signal is Heritage’s news outlet, which aims to get the facts out and bypass the mainstream media clutter.

It’s encouraging to know that the president-elect’s team continues to rely on news and analysis from Heritage experts.

Your support allows us to be a strong voice for conservative principles.

Repealing Obamacare is a top priority for conservatives in the next administration.

You have played an integral part in helping Heritage push for repeal, even when the Establishment has said it wasn’t worth fighting.

This short new video explains exactly how Obamacare can be repealed on Donald Trump’s first day in office.

Do you believe Obamacare will be fully repealed in 2017?

Through your continued support of Heritage, you are enabling conservative voices to break through in the media.

Here are a few recent Heritage television appearances you have made possible:

Jim DeMint on Fox News discussing earmarks

Charles Stimson weighs in on Trump’s NSA picks

Nile Gardiner discusses the Iran deal on Fox Business

If you would like to see future videos as they are released, you can subscribe to the Heritage Response Room YouTube channel.

Have you seen Heritage experts in the media over the last few weeks?
