Drew Keyes started last week as Senior Policy Analyst at Paragon. Drew brings a decade of experience as a Congressional staffer, during which time he worked to advance free-market health policy reforms.
Most recently, Keyes served as a professional policy staffer for the Republican Study Committee (RSC) under Chairman Mike Johnson (R-LA) and then Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN). During his time with RSC, he was the staff lead for the RSC’s Health Care Task Force where he analyzed proposals, drafted legislation as well as letters from members of Congress, and provided policy counsel to RSC Member offices on all health care issues. In his role, he provided detailed analysis of every bill under his portfolio that came to the House floor for a vote and supplemented his work with policy papers and memos.
Drew also served as a Senior Legislative Assistant for Representative Tom McClintock (R-CA) after getting his start on Capitol Hill with Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) in 2012.
Chairman Banks praised Keyes’ work for Congress. “Drew Keyes is a true subject matter expert with years of experience analyzing and crafting health care legislation on Capitol Hill. We were sad to see him go and wish him the best on his next endeavor.”
