Tim Kaine praises Obama on changing contraception rule

Virginia Senate candidate Tim Kaine (D) praised President Obama's change to a rule requiring some religious-affiliated organizations provide contraceptive care to its employees.

Kaine, who headed the Democratic National Committee under Obama, criticized the initial version of the rule.

But shortly after Obama announced that, under the change, insurers rather, religious organizations that objected to providing contraceptive care, would be required to provide birth control to employees of those organizations, Kaine said he was "pleased" with the change.

"I am pleased that the White House has taken further steps to ensure that all women have access to affordable contraception and to ensure that religious organizations will not be asked to violate their beliefs in the process," Kaine said in a statement.

3. Doesn't work that way

So, no I don't believe he will...especially if it goes against the Catholic church.

2. Kaine never should have gotten the go-ahead to run

They just should have kept him locked up in that DNC office while the grownups handle party affairs...

They'd have a better chance of putting ME on the goddamned ballot

6. Compromise is not losing your spine

I like compromise there is way too much gridlock in our government.

7. Women's access to birth control is what he is compromising.

So a compromise means they are being thrown under the bus a little versus. The fact that an employee's boss is a religious organization should be irrelevant to what kind of coverage the employee gets. After all, the employer does not speak for the employee's beliefs.

10. When you don't have to, its spineless

The majority of people in this country support the rules without "compromise"

But Obama can't seem to find his spine and stand up for us.

Basically, he ends up looking weak.

9. is that a sentence?

I can't figure out what it means.

"But shortly after Obama announced that, under the change, insurers rather, religious organizations that objected to providing contraceptive care, would be required to provide birth control to employees of those organizations, Kaine said he was "pleased" with the change. "
