Every year, Congress is sent thousands of reports from various federal agencies. But they go largely unread by lawmakers. Instead, lawmakers turn to sources they trust, former Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) tells the Washington Post:

“If you’re a Republican, you go to the Heritage Foundation, you go to the American Enterprise Institute,” Stearns said. “. . . You almost take the opinion that the outside groups are going to monitor these better than you and your staff can do.”

Where do you go for the facts on policy debates?
