Blueprint For Reform is not The Heritage Foundation’s first comprehensive conservative policy agenda.

In 1980, just as Reagan was beginning his first term in office, The Heritage Foundation developed a 1,100 page detailed policy manual on everything from taxes and regulation to trade and national defense. This “Mandate for Leadership” as it was so titled was described by United Press International back then as:

“a blueprint for grabbing the government by its frayed New Deal lapels and shaking out 48 years of liberal policy.”

President Reagan used “Mandate” to help realize his vision of a world free of communism, an economy that didn’t crush people’s dreams with high taxes and regulations, and an America the world could admire once again. He gave copies to every member of his Cabinet. The result: Nearly two-thirds of “Mandate’s” 2,000 recommendations were adopted or attempted by the Reagan administration.

Now is a time for a new Mandate for Leadership.

We have come a long way since Reagan—and not in a good way. The liberal policies of the Obama administration have put a stranglehold on free enterprise. New entitlements such as Obamacare have led to the largest expansion of the federal government since the New Deal. As Reagan once said:

“Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem.”

That’s why the Heritage Foundation created Blueprint for Reform. And today, you can support principled conservative research when you become the Heritage Foundation’s newest member.

Thank you for your gift to the Heritage Foundation!

You know that sound conservative policy is the best answer to our nation’s problems.

But the liberal left and the Washington Establishment have been blinded by fake news and a stubborn resolve to keep the status quo. This is unacceptable! They have to feel the heat—and that’s where Heritage Action for America comes in. Heritage Action’s lobbyists and grassroots activists put political pressure on legislators and lawmakers to get The Heritage Foundation’s policies across the finish line. Each and every day, Heritage Action is pressuring lawmakers to step it up and fix health care, stop amnesty, and pass welfare reform—or they’ll feel the heat at the polls. But we can’t do this without you.

Hold Washington’s feet to the fire with your gift to Heritage Action today!
