Kimberly Squire, Member of Heritage Young Leaders Program and Young President’s Club

Moving to Washington, DC from Los Angeles, CA was a huge transition for me — it was quite the culture shock. But my passion for public policy and conservatism was enough to lead me to accept an internship with The Heritage Foundation. And I could not be happier with my decision.

My time at Heritage has been a wonderful experience intellectually, professionally, and socially. I made the right choice!

Not only have I learned a great deal about our nation’s rich, conservative heritage, I have developed a deeper understanding of why I am conservative and how important the work that we accomplish here is. It was fascinating to attend weekly briefings and lectures from some of the nation’s foremost scholars on topics ranging from health care and entitlement reform to first principles and their relevance to today’s public policy debates.

Carafano: Bagging bin Laden Doesn’t End the Long War

Osama bin Laden is dead, but the war against terrorism is far from over, Heritage’s James Carafano writes in the The Washington Examiner. He explains that it is vital that the United States sees this war through to a successful conclusion and bring peace to our nation.

Carafano says that in order to win this war,

Washington must find the resolve to fully fund the military, finish the job in Iraq and Afghanistan, and keep Guantanamo Bay open until it is no longer needed. None of these will be easy—but victory demands nothing less.

Now is the time to redouble our efforts in Afghanistan through proven counter-terrorism and intelligence tactics. Carafano explains that “talk of retrenchment sends out all the wrong signals to America’s enemies” and increases the risks to our military. Bin Laden’s death will reverberate throughout the Middle East and terrorists are bound to respond by exacting revenge on the U.S.

Now is not the time to sit back and celebrate. We need to reassess our strategy in the Middle East in order to win the war on terror. That, Carafano maintains, is the only way victory can be attained.

Chart: Interest on Debt Was Greater Than Funding for Most Programs in 2010

Leave a Comment

In Heritage Work

The U.S. spent more on interest on the national debt last year than it spent on many federal departments, including Education and Veterans Affairs combined.  The information on this chart—released as part of Heritage’s 2011 Budget Chart Book—puts into perspective how imperative it is for members of Congress to cut spending and fix our nation’s deficit before interest charges balloon further.
