Flip Flop Joe Biden Reverses Position on Hyde

President Trump has called Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe,” but after Thursday he should call him “Flip Flop Joe.” That’s because within one day after affirming that he supported the Hyde Amendment, he changed his mind.

Oh, he spewed the usual political BS, but you know the real story, don’t you. He caught flak from his Democratic rivals on Wednesday for saying that he supported Hyde. So on Thursday he said this at a Democratic gala in Atlanta:

“If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code.”

And he’s blaming those rascally Republican states who think that, gee, maybe there’s something evil about killing an unborn child.

But wait! Hasn’t Flip Flop Joe supported the Hyde Amendment for years? That 40+ year-old law which prevents Medicare and Medicaid funds from paying for abortions? In other words, not forcing citizens who find abortion reprehensible to pay for it through taxes.

Yeah, about that.

“But circumstances have changed. I’ve been working through the final details of my health care plan like others in this race, and I’ve been struggling with the problems that Hyde now presents.”

Oh, he’s been “struggling” with it alright. He’s been struggling with Sen. Elizabeth Warren slamming him at a town hall on Wednesday night. Or with Rep. Seth Moulten (yeah, he’s running too) comparing the need to federally fund abortion with the need to fund our troops.

Or maybe it’s because dimwit actress Alyssa Milano hurt his feelings.

And poor Joe just can’t even. So he flip-flopped, like a beached carp.


Meanwhile, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel snarked that maybe Joe should’ve just plagiarized his abortion position, like he did with others:

What a profile in courage!

But Joe Biden is also supposed to be a devout Catholic who personally opposes abortion, right?

Suure, he is. Consider that when Biden entered the Senate in 1973, he opposed Roe v. Wade. But then Flip Flop Joe became just another political animal, his pro-life stance giving way to political pressures over the decades. Never mind that U.S. Bishops have criticized him over the years. Biden may worship the Holy Trinity during Mass, but his real god is political power.

And this is the guy who wants to become our Head of State? Joe Biden is just another political weasel who sides with the radical Left in an effort to win the Democratic nomination.
