Clinton Agenda Includes Show Horses



As the general election approaches on Tuesday, November 8th, the candidates are in the stretch runs of their campaigns.   Most national polls have Hillary Clinton with a narrow lead.  Clinton’s agenda on her web site, “Hillary’s Vision for America,” includes a reference to show horses.

In Clinton’s “Protecting animals and wildlife,” she specifically addresses horse slaughter and soring.  Her agenda states, “Protect horses by ending the slaughter of horses for human consumption and cracking down on the practice of horse soring, in which chemicals or other inhumane methods are applied to horses’ limbs to exaggerate their gait.”

Upon reading many of Clinton’s points under protecting animals and wildlife it is obvious the influence of the Humane Society of the United States on her campaign and agenda.  HSUS is very influential in the Democratic party and supports many of its candidates.  HSUS is also very close to current Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.  Vilsack’s wife, Chrisite, previously ran for the House of Representatives in Iowa against Steve King and HSUS spent close to $750,000 in support of Vilsack’s campaign.  King won as all of the television stations pulled the HSUS ads because of the false content contained in them.
