George W. Bush’s re-election was an emphatic mandate for an agenda based on the foundation of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, and a strong national defense. But Washington’s many pressures make it difficult for lawmakers to keep their focus. Thus, Americans need to hold them firmly to account. The Heritage Foundation’s Mandate for Leadership provides an overview of the ideals that undergird sound policy on key issues and the main policy objectives that flow from them. This handbook is a powerful tool to help responsible lawmakers turn principle into policy and it is a checklist that Americans can use to make sure they do.
