American Enterpris Institute (AEI)

AEI is a private, nonpartisan, not-for-profit institution dedicated to research and education on issues of government, politics, economics and social welfare. Founded in 1943, AEI is home to some of America’s most accomplished public policy experts. AEI’s purpose is to serve leaders and the public through research and education on the most important issues of the day. AEI research is conducted through seven primary research divisions: Economics, Foreign and Defense Policy, Politics and Public Opinion, Education, Health, Energy and the Environment and Society and Culture. It also works through several specialized outlets, such as the National Research Initiative (which sponsors research by university-based scholars), the AEI Press, the Enterprise Blog and The American, AEI’s online magazine.

American Institute for Economic Research   Organized in 1933 as a private, independent, scientific, and educational charitable organization, the American Institute for Economic Research plans its research to help individuals protect their personal interests and those of the Nation. The Institute represents no fund, concentration of wealth, or other special interests. Its financial support comes primarily from the small annual fees of thousands of sustaining members, from sales of its publications, and from tax-deductible contributions.

Cato Institute   The Cato Institute was founded in 1977 by Edward H. Crane. This non-profit public policy research foundation has been a leader in the fight to reform Social Security.  The Institute is named for Cato’s Letters, a series of libertarian pamphlets that helped lay the philosophical foundation for the American Revolution.

Citizens Against Government Waste   Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) is a private, non-partisan, non-profit organization representing more than one million members and supporters nationwide. CAGW’s mission is to eliminate waste, mismanagement, and inefficiency in the federal government. Founded in 1984 by the late industrialist J. Peter Grace and syndicated columnist Jack Anderson, CAGW is the legacy of the President’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, also known as the Grace Commission.

Competitive Enterprise Institute   The Competitive Enterprise Institute is a non-profit public policy organization dedicated to the principles of free enterprise and limited government. We believe that consumers are best helped not by government regulation but by being allowed to make their own choices in a free marketplace. Since its founding in 1984, CEI has grown into a $3,000,000 institution with a team of nearly 40 policy experts and other staff.

Heritage Foundation   Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institute – a think tank – whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

Institute for Policy Innovation   The Institute for Policy Innovation is a tax-exempt, 501 (c) (3) organization that believes in lower taxes, fewer regulations, and a smaller, less-intrusive government.

60 Plus Association, Inc.   The 60 Plus Association is a non-partisan seniors advocacy group with a free enterprise, less government, less taxes approach to seniors issues. 60 Plus has set ending the federal estate tax and saving Social Security for the young as its top priorities. 60 Plus is often viewed as the conservative alternative to the AARP.

Social Security    Social Security supports local chapters in a variety of educational activities, including speakers’ bureaus, activity meetings, newsletters, and distribution of materials to new voters and young families. Social Security also assists in efforts to let Congress know how much support already exists for Social Security Choice. These efforts include letter-writing campaigns, earned media programs, office meetings and special events. Local chapters can be established on a university campus, in a neighborhood or community, or across an entire Congressional District.

Urban Institute  The Urban Institute (UI) measures effects, compares options, shows which stakeholders get the most and least, tests conventional wisdom, reveals trends, and makes costs, benefits, and risks explicit.  UI’s Income and Benefits Policy Center studies how income support, social insurance (including Social Security), tax, and employee-benefit programs affect the behavior and economic well-being of families.
