State Department is getting restructured with your help

Heritage is working hard to ensure that small, limited government is pushed forward as much as possible.

Recently, the State Department started undergoing a major restructure–cutting costs and finding ways to be more efficient.

Many of these restructure changes come straight from Heritage’s playbook on reorganizing the Federal government.

Heritage event: What should be done about the Iran deal?

Wednesday, Heritage hosted an event on the challenges the U.S. faces with Iran and what the best response would be.

You can watch the event below:

Since the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, Tehran has continued its malign policies in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Iran’s expanding influence in these war-torn countries has been facilitated by the strategic dividends and sanctions relief provided by the nuclear deal.

Heritage’s recommendation is to pull out of the Iran Deal entirely and there will be an opportunity to at the next recertification in October.

The main goal is to cut off the cash flow to the regime and implement a long-term sustainable strategy to deal with the regional and nuclear threat.

Paving the way for tax reform

Heritage experts Romina Boccia and Adam Michel have been busy working to lay the groundwork for much-needed tax reform that will be debated in the upcoming weeks.

They wrote a piece in The Hill last week that focused on how the House, Senate, and CBO treat tax cuts as they evaluate the impact on the overall budget.

Tax reform is one of the most important legislative priorities for Congress and the administration this fall. Good tax reform will unleash economic growth, creating greater opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.

One obscure choice by the Senate Budget Committee could make or break tax reform this year. The revenue baseline adopted in the Senate budget resolution will determine whether updating the tax code this year can provide tax relief for the American people. The Senate should choose the appropriate budget baseline to pave the way for pro-growth tax reform.

Pro-growth tax reform that provides relief for American families and businesses should be the centerpiece of Congress’ agenda this fall. The House Budget Committee’s proposed budget makes that task considerably more difficult. The Senate can avoid the same mistake by choosing the correct baseline.
