Earlier this month, Taegan Goddard — a nationally respected politico — publicly launched Wonk Wire.
Much like Goddard’s well-established Political Wire (a site I admittedly check out everyday), which provides the latest in national political news, whereas Wonk Wire provides an up-to-date avenue on the latest news and tidbits on national public policy. Congressional staffers, policy advisors, and think-tankers can rejoice in this site, for sure.Wonk Wire covers a broad range of public policy topics from Budget & Taxes, to Health Care, to Transportation. For example, one of the first posts from today, May 25, 2012 quickly covers how to end the era of “Too Big to Fail” financial institutions.
Even if you disagree, or agree, with the proposed topic in question, you are free to comment in the post. Weighty policy discussions are highly encouraged, and often occur on various topics — these are always my favorite to read.
I know, I know… it might be a little weird for me to find this stuff interesting, but a comprehensive policy discussion is all for the best. Wouldn’t you rather have an air-tight policy to adopt and implement, as opposed to those all-to-often “devil in the details” proposals? I know I would!
