    Lawmakers on Capitol Hill turn their attention to the budget as Douglas Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, testifies before the House Budget Committee. He’ll be talking about the CBO’s Long-Term Budget Outlook. In the Senate, the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will hear from the middle class about their economic struggles. Thomas Clements, who appeared in a recent Heritage and Institute for Energy Research video, is among the witnesses.

    Today at Heritage we’ll host freshman Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle (R-NY) for the monthly Conservative Women’s Network lecture. Buerkle, who represents a district not far from where I grew up, surprised the political establishment with her victory in November. Since coming to Washington, she’s fought for lower taxes, less spending and limited government. The Conservative Women’s Network, hosted by Heritage and the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, is made up of more than 1,000 women in the Washington, D.C. area.

      America will be divested of the savings, employment and opportunity. By trying to keep America solvent, she is preserving our patrimony of freedom and opportunity

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
