Today marks the 5th anniversary of the American Action Forum, a group that I founded to inject forward thinking ideas into the public debate. By focusing on the issues that share common ground across the political spectrum, The Forum has become a leading voice for promoting innovative, free market solutions to create a smaller, smarter government.
The Forum’s data driven, nimble approach cuts through the rhetoric of Washington, proving that it’s not always the loudest voices that win the day, but rather those with the facts and the best ideas who come out on top. From providing cutting edge research on tax and economic policies, to analyzing crippling government regulations, the Forum keeps Members of Congress and influencers informed at real time of the most important issues in the public policy arena.
I have many people to thank for making this organization a success. Doug Holtz-Eakin, one of the most trusted economists and policy leaders on both sides of the aisle, has grown the team from a staff of two that started out in a small rented office, to a team of 30. All of the incredibly bright people who have led the charge to bring this organization into the center of the public policy debate deserve credit for how far we’ve come in such a short time.
Success is never final, however, and I’m looking forward to continuing to make the American Action Forum a leading voice for sensible policy solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems.
