It used to be said that Willie Mays’s glove was where triples went to die. Well, Congress has become the place where good ideas go to die.Congress is like Willie Mays? Ouch. That hurts. That hurts really badly. But don't worry, while Congress may be just as awful as Willie Mays, you have nothing to fear, because the Heritage Foundation will save the day:
In contrast, think tanks such as Heritage use objective analysis to discover why ideas work or don’t.DeMint goes on to take credit on behalf of Heritage for everything from defending Israel from missile attacks to reforming welfare. One thing he doesn't mention, however, is that Heritage was instrumental in developing the health care mandate and was a strong supporter of Romneycare which in turn paved the way for Obamacare. That's probably the best thing the Heritage Foundation has ever done, so of course Jim DeMint pretends that it never happened.
