Swamp Stories Episode 15: The Conservative Case for Reform


“So the question for Republicans is whether we’re ready to take on political reform and look at these issues through the principled lens of conservatism instead of a partisan, political one…  Because fixing our broken political system is the smart thing to do — and it’s the right thing to do.”

The issue of fixing our political system isn’t a partisan one. Across the country, Republicans and Democrats alike believe that Washington isn’t working well and are looking to members of Congress to right the ship.

Yet, it’s been the case throughout the years that Democrats take the lead on reform issues and legislation.

In Episode 15, Weston examines this relationship between conservatives and the political reform movement. He looks at how a new wave of Republican reformers is turning the tide when it comes to fixing the political system and speaks with some of these reformers, including a member of Congress, to build the conservative case for reform. 

Listeners will hear from:

  • Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI)
  • Luke Knittig, Senior Director of Communications at the McCain Institute
  • John Pudner, Executive Director of Take Back our Republic
  • Nilmini Rubin, Co-Founder of Fix the System

Listen to this week’s episode, “The Conservative Case for Reform,” to hear more about how some Republicans are working to fix our broken political system.
