Ted McCann, a BPC fellow and former Assistant to the Speaker for
Policy during former Speaker Ryan's tenure, discusses the
importance of evidence-based policymaking and areas he sees for
reform as a former Hill staffer.
A lot of great work is being done by members of Congress, but too little attention is being paid as the media fixates on controversies. BPC Action launched the Bipartisan Backstory podcast to shine a spotlight on members of Congress who work to find common ground on our country's most pressing challenges. We share members' stories and lessons from the trenches of hard-fought policy battles to show Americans that there are legislators dedicated to solving today's problems and to restore their trust in Congress.
