As Washington gears up for election season, we take a look back at the year’s highlights on Twitter. While 2015 offered opportunities to continue our work in core areas like the federal budget and economic policy, energy innovation, and U.S. policy toward Iran, it also brought some surprises. The financial reform team examined the disparate regulation of marijuana banking. Our national security staffers published timely analysis of political upheaval in Turkey and its impact on the Syrian conflict. And if anyone tells you bipartisanship is dead, point them to BPC’s health policy work—Tom Daschle and Newt Gingrich found common ground on a set of recommendations to improve and expand health insurance coverage through state flexibility.
For members of the media wishing to speak with one of our experts before or after next week’s State of the Union address, please email our press secretary, Jordan LaPier.
