How do you tell when a politician is lying? Their lips move.
Proof of this is Hillary's hand picked VP candidate Timmy "The Weasel" Kaine's sponsorship of a bill that royally screws over the exact same people he ALLEGEDLY "fought so hard to protect" ::roll eyes:: by allowing banks to resume the discriminatory practice of redlining.
The bill he sponsored will eliminate parts of the Dodd-Frank Act that provides protection against discriminatory lending practices by banks? Who would be against that (and therefore FOR more discrimination?)??? Good, 'ol Timmy Kaine for one!
Kaine's new bill will remove protections for 25 of the top 38 banks in Virginia, weakens regulations, allows for regulations to be manipulated and weakens consumer protections.
BTW, 'ol Timmy Kaine voted for the Dodd-Frank Act before he was against it (who does THAT remind you of?)
It also isn't just liberal progressives like me that hate this bill (not to be confused with the faux-liberals who voted for people like Clinton and Kaine last time). Noted watchdog groups (including some pretty conservative ones) like the AFL-CIO, Public Citizen, the Center for American Progress, Indivisible, Americans for Financial Reform, the National Fair Housing Alliance, the National Housing Law Project and the National Urban League have all weighed in against the proposed bill.
The sad thing is that 'ol Timmy isn't the only liar. There are at least 11 other Democrats who are right there with him.
Meh. Just another day in the life of Centralist Democrats (read stealth Republicans) who do Trump's and Wall Street's bidding like the worthless, lying, unethical fucks they all are...
