“Making Government Work”

Today, State Representative Tan Parker, the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) and Merrie Spaeth of Spaeth Communications, Inc. announce the publication of “Making Government Work,” bringing together many of today’s most powerful voices in America. Chuck Norris, Rick Perry, Kathy Ireland, Bob Woodson, Jeb Bush, Robert P. George, Rick Santorum and many more engage in dialogue about the most pressing problems facing our nation. From addressing topics such as tax policy to strengthen economic growth, healthcare solutions, education policy, how best to address crime in our country, and your constitutional rights – “Making Government Work” is the modern blueprint for a stronger America.

With a compelling foreword from Nikki Haley, “Making Government Work” captures the essence of the original 1994 edition, edited by the late Harold J. “Tex” Lezar, with a foreword from President Ronald Reagan. Its publication ushered in a new era of common-sense public policy and conservatism. 

That’s exactly what the new edition can do, according to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

“ ‘Making Government Work’ is for state government what the Contract with America was for the federal government,” said Gingrich. “It is a sensible, fact-based plan to create a better future through the application of sound principles.”

“As the editor, it was important to me that this book represent a way forward for all Americans by once again honoring the return of conversation and putting government in alignment with free markets, free minds and the freedom to prosper,” said Parker, a member of the Texas House of Representatives. “Our states are channeling the most effective solutions for economic growth, energy independence, and responsive infrastructure while also addressing the social fabric of our nation on the issues that matter most to Americans. It’s time to bring back meaningful conversation and a government responsive to the American people.” 

“We are proud to work with Tan on this important book, which comes at a crucial time for our nation,” said TPPF Executive Director Kevin Roberts. “Our hope is that a new generation of leaders at the state level will see that conservatism is something to be pursued at all levels of government— progress for America doesn’t have to wait for Washington.”

“While ‘Making Government Work’ is a resource for anyone who believes in a conservative approach to government’s action, wherever you are on the political spectrum, it’s a ‘must read’ review of today’s critical issues from thoughtful and influential leaders,” said Merrie Spaeth, president and founder of Spaeth Communications.

“Making Government Work,” published by Regnery Publishing and distributed by Simon & Schuster will be on sale through makinggovernmentwork.com, where a complete listing of authors is available, Amazon.com, and at major book retailers. All author proceeds will be donated to charitable causes primarily those that serve our nation’s veterans.
