Fetuses, flood insurance and the political ability to make lemons out of lemonade
Yesterday, I appeared on RT America’s “The Alyona Show” to talk about Sen. Ran Paul’s (R-KY) efforts to amend a flood insurance bill to include language definining fetuses as people, thus making abortion illegal.
After, we spoke in brief about today’s expected decision about the Affordable Care Act, which came down in favor of retaining the individual mandate, albeit not because of the Commerce Clause. My prediction was that, no matter what happened, both sides would find a way to spin it to the benefit of their political party. And, surprise! In a vociferous defense on his Twitter feed and in an article at The Weekly Standard, conservative writer Jay Cost already proved me right.
The best way to make predictions is to assume the people’s whose job it is to spin stuff will spin it.
And then there’s the part about why everyone hates Congress!
