Thirty-two lawmakers including Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) outlined their conservative vision for America in an event Wednesday at The Heritage Foundation.
At the Conservative Policy Summit, hosted by our sister organization, Heritage Action for America, lawmakers reviewed the which conservative policies Congress will take up next year, which legislation conservatives should fight to advance, and how Congress can actually advance the conservative agenda.
The event included keynote remarks from Ryan, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC), and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE).
To rein in government overreach, summit attendees argued that we should work towards a government that provides opportunity for all and favoritism to none. Sasse, for example, blamed bureaucracies like the Environmental Protection Agency for putting a damper on economic freedom and favoring well-connected Washington insiders.
What do you think? Is ever-expanding government the biggest threat to freedom?
