This is the Article I Project in a nutshell: it’s a new network of House and Senate conservatives working together on a new agenda of government reform and congressional rehabilitation.

The premise of the Article I Project is simple: the federal government is broken, and congressional weakness is to blame.

The authors of the Constitution made Congress the most powerful of the federal government’s three co-equal branches. Congress was designed both as the most powerful and the most accountable to the people.
"But there’s one story that nearly every Utahn knows: President Bill Clinton’s infamous use of the Antiquities Act in 1996 to designate as a national monument more than 1.5 million acres of land in southern Utah – what would become known as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument."
The bill moving through Congress today and tomorrow – made up of the omnibus spending bill and tax extenders package – and the process that produced it are an affront to the Constitution – to they very idea of constitutionalism – and an insult to the American people.
Later today the Senate will vote on the “Every Student Succeeds Act” – a bill that reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which is the legislation governing federal K-12 education policy.
The budget deal before the Senate today is not just a horrible piece of legislation undeserving of this chamber’s support. It also represents the last gasping breath of a disgraced bipartisan beltway establishment on the verge of collapse.
"Applying timeless conservative principles to fix today’s broken government policies, and help all Americans in their pursuit of happiness, has always been the bread and butter of what Heritage does. It’s how I’ve tried to approach my work in the Senate for the past five years. And it’s what brings me here today to talk about the need for criminal justice reform."
