The devotion to funding abortions by the Democrats like Senator Amy Klobuchar is disturbing. The headline should read: Klobuchar admits her office helped Democrats lie about Republicans
Klobuchar concedes office knew of abortion provision
WASHINGTON – A staffer in Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s office was aware of a controversial abortion-related provision in a sex trafficking bill that has ground the Senate to a halt and stalled the nomination of the next U.S. Attorney General.
Klobuchar is the primary Democratic cosponsor on the bipartisan bill that would establish a restitution fund for victims of human trafficking with money seized from convicted sex traffickers.
The bill was set to sail through the Senate after a brief debate last week until it suddenly stalled when Democrats announced that it contained what’s known as “Hyde Amendment” language they had been unaware of. The language prevents the use of the seized money to pay for abortions.
Democrats took to the floor of the US Senate yesterday and made racially explosive claims for why Republicans refused to bring up the confirmation of Loretta Lynch. They said they were making her sit in the back of the bus. Klobuchar took part in the filibuster trying to shame Republicans for the Sex trafficking bill stalling.
But Klobuchar had the opportunity to bring up the little provision that prevented taxpayer money from being used for abortion funding long before the bill reached the floor. The enflamed vitriol from her party towards Republicans was all preventable.
For the past week, Republicans insisted that Democrats had been aware of the Hyde Amendment’s inclusion and had not sought its removal when the bill was debated in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Cornyn called the Democrats’ assertions, “preposterous” and “not credible” and Klobuchar’s office now concedes he was correct.
“A staff member who reviewed the reintroduced bill had seen the Hyde provision in the bill but did not inform the Senator,” said Klobuchar spokeswoman Julia Krahe, in a statement. “The Senator takes responsibility for the work of her office and missing the provision.”
Senator Klobuchar needs to take responsibility for all the venom spewed forth by her party because of her mistake. There was a lot of hatred on display because of this love Klobuchar has for abortion funding.
Klobuchar spent several hours on the Senate floor Wednesday reading from a book about international sex trafficking to rally support for the bill but did not publicly address the issue of her office’s role in the legislative stalemate.
Share this story with all of your friends and family who believe the media driven hype that Klobuchar is a moderate Senator who just gets along with everyone regardless of their party. She is a died in the wool left wing Democrat.
