Tim Kaine contradicts Hillary Clinton’s statement on abortion and the Hyde Amendment

July 31, 2016

Tim Kaine  I think that it is safe to say there is a rift brewing within the Democratic Party on Hillary Clinton’s choice of Tim Kaine to be her running-mate. The far-left wing of the Democratic Party–especially the Bernie Sanders supporters–are not happy with the choice because they were hoping for somebody who was more of a leftist. This portion of the party does not trust Hillary Clinton because of her ties to Wall Street and the fact that she is a millionaire campaigning against millionaires. It also does not help that Tim Kaine has been a supporter of the TPP and nobody really knows where Hillary Clinton stands on the trade agreement because she has been wishy-washy on the issue.

  And then there is the issue of abortion: Tim Kaine is a Catholic and has stated he is personally opposed to abortion and he has been a supporter of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the Federal funding of abortion, while Hillary Clinton wants the amendment repealed. In an attempt to win over some trust from the far-left faction of the party Hillary Clinton claimed that her running-mate has changed his mind and now supports the amendment’s repeal.

  Here is more:

“He has said that he will stand with Secretary Clinton to defend a woman’s right to choose, to repeal the Hyde Amendment,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN.

  However in an interview Tim Kaine has contradicted Hillary Clinton and said he has not changed his stance on the Hyde Amendment. Here is more on that:

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine seemingly contradicted the assertion, made by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and his own spokesperson, that he would work with the nominee on restoring Medicaid funding for abortion.

In an interview with CNN Friday, Kaine said, “I have been for the Hyde Amendment. I haven’t changed my position on that.” He then repeated it: “I have not changed my position. Have not changed my position on that.”

  Seemingly? It looks pretty obvious to me! Somebody is lying and if you ask me Tim Kaine sounds pretty adamant about his position so if I were a betting man you know where I would place my money. It will be interesting to see how this election plays out but right now it looks like Hillary Clinton may have made a miscalculation in choosing her running-mate. Will it be politically fatal? Only time will tell…

    Does it really matter what they say or what man-made religion (not God made or approved) they profess to belong to? This is a bit OT but it shows the phony baloney’s in leadership positions that say one thing and do the opposite. ‘FEMA Investigator’s Shock 9/11 Claim: ‘Vault Contents Emptied Before Attack… They Knew It Was Going To Happen’
    Kaine (tribe of Cain?) is anti-guns, speaks Spanish (which she needs the support of the illegals) & is in the same corrupt & smelly cesspool as Hilly. Another ‘life sucking ego’ who supports the gov. staged shootings and bombings events as being real and blaming it on scapegoats – to push disarming the public. A wormy sort of person he is:

      Damn that Constitution that give us the right to keep and bear arms! The Kaine/Cain comparison is gaining some steam on Facebook. There are pictures on FB making the rounds of Hillary and Kaine together with the caption “Kaine and UnAble.”

        Funny. Must’ve caught some of the flow of that! Makes sense doesn’t it. But I’m going to add a different name, the spirit of Jezebel or Athaliah – which this group’s discussing!

        Not to say this group is ‘all knowing’ and ‘right on’, but understanding that it’s not just selfish and corrupt people making these decisions. This perspective helps place some pieces of the puzzle in to see the bigger picture (like the stars that can only be seen at night – not everything is visible).

        Jezebel works for me! I think these two were spot on!
