Oh, what tangled webs we weave…. Tim Kaine and the Hyde Amendment
Since the beginning of the month pro-abort Sen. Tim Kaine has gone from saying, “I have traditionally been a supporter of the Hyde amendment, but I’ll check it out,” to opposing it, according to Clinton’s campaign manager, to being “committed to carrying out Secretary Clinton’s agenda,” although “not personally for repeal of the Hyde Amendment, according to a Clinton spokesperson, to telling CNN today, “I have been for the Hyde Amendment and I haven’t changed my position on that.”
Two quick points. The CNN host didn’t ask Kaine the obvious question: whether he did or didn’t personally support the Hyde Amendment, was he still “committed to carrying out Secretary Clinton’s agenda” which includes overturning the Hyde Amendment? The answer doubtless would have been yes.
Second, forcing taxpayers to pass for abortions is a losing position, no matter how many times Clinton and her supporters tell you otherwise.
