In 1976, Biden voted for the Hyde Amendment, a law banning federal funds to pay for abortion.
In 1981, the “Biden amendment” to the Foreign Assistance Act banned any American aid from being used in research related to abortions.
In 1984, Biden supported the “Mexico City policy,” which bans federal funding for private organizations that provide abortion, advocate to decriminalize abortion, or expand abortion services.
1993: Biden votes to save the Hyde Amendment
In 1995 and 1997, Biden voted for partial-birth abortion bans that would be vetoed by Bill Clinton.
June 5th, 2019, Joe Biden continues his 40+ year support for the Hyde Amendment.
June 6th, Twitter pushback to Biden support of the Hyde Amendment
June 6th, night, Joe Biden caves and drops a 40+-year position to appease progs. Now supports taxpayer-funded abortion, from conception to crowning.
But no, the Dem party isn't moving hard left, not at all. And Biden is a real rock-ribbed leader.…
“I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion,” he said. “I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.”…
If you take a position 46 years, you change your mind one afternoon, you should probably have a pretty good explanation for why.
Biden will make the argument that his experience matters. But if he was wrong about everything, and admits it, then what does that experience mean?
Having a position for 46 years and making a uturn one day is not a "flip flop."

70s television show openings really captured the zeitgeist of the time. They're amazing.

Though, as I noted at the time, The correct argument for 2016 GOP was: We’ve already helped Obama put two Constitution-busting justices on the Court, and now we have an patriotic duty to do everything within our legal power to stop him from doing it again.’

I will never understand how these people equate a less intrusive state with fascism or communism.
The state that doesn't allow authorities to demand papers or compel children to wear masks is the Soviet one?

Fauci is incredibly thin-skinned.
Early on I was Fauci-neutral, but now I basically think he's the worst person in the country. A mendacious, political motivated, bureaucrat whose caused immense damage.
*one of the worst. lots of strong competition.

Doocy is usually the only one who asks a tough question so this makes a sense.
So much of left-wing punditry these days revolves around efforts to shut down speech. You know, to save “democracy.”
The best part of this, though, is the notion the cnn is a real news organization.
