A Retrenchment At Heritage?


If Jim DeMint concluded that he overreached in his first year as president of the Heritage Foundation and decided he needed to reel things back in to restore relations with Republicans in Congress, with the business wing of the GOP, and with funders, what would it look like?

It would probably look a lot like this week’s hire of Stephen Moore as the new “chief economist” for the foundation. That’s how some conservatives who have been at odds recently with Heritage are seeing it. Dylan Scott reports on the initial reactions and talks with Moore himself.
