March 16, 2010

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire/ — Azteca America television network is proud to feature Tim Kaine, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), on this week’s broadcast of “Issues: Caras y Voces,” hosted by veteran Latino journalist Armando Guzman.

Before entering politics, Mr. Kaine worked as a lawyer and taught legal ethics at the University of Richmond.

During the segment, Mr. Kaine strongly defends the Obama proposal for healthcare:

“It’s very important for us to finish this process and reform the system.

“Families and companies, they all want to find a solution. It’s a matter where there are opportunities for both parties to work together, because there are companies seeking some kind of solution and families and Latinos and many more who want solutions. They are all at the table and we all have to find a comprehensive solution.”
