ICYMI: Hawley Still Refusing to Do His Job, Protecting Dark Money Donors

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that private attorney Elad Gross is continuing to do what Attorney General Josh Hawley will not: seek answers about the dark money donors behind former governor Eric Greitens' nonprofit organization. Gross has repeatedly called for assistance from Hawley, saying that "The law is set up so that the attorney general's office is the one (that is) supposed to be investigating this, not for a citizen of the state to be doing his (Hawley's) job for him." While both Gross and Republican Rep. Jay Barnes have been demanding answers about the organization, Hawley's abdication of responsibility raises serious questions about whether he is refusing to do his job simply to protect his own dark money donors.

ICYMI: CBS News: Few companies using tax cuts for pay hikes

A new report from CBS News shows who is receiving most of the benefits from the Republican tax plan, and it's not Missouri workers.

ICYMI: Fact Check MOSTLY FALSE: “Hawley’s claim of lost health care plans has it upside down”

On the heels of Claire McCaskill receiving the first "true" fact check from Politifact Missouri since 2017 for her claim that Hawley's lawsuit would take away all of the consumer protections under the Affordable Care Act and important prescription drug coverage for seniors, a new fact check from Politifact Missouri finds that Hawley continues to mislead Missouri voters on their top issue -- health care. The analysis rates Hawley's claims on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) "mostly false," noting that the law did not cause millions of Americans to lose their health care plans. Instead, nearly 20 million more Americans gained health insurance once the main provisions of the ACA took effect.

ICYMI: Politico: “Republicans ‘duck and cover’ on pre-existing conditions”

According to a new report from Politico, Republicans -- including Josh Hawley -- are trying to "duck and cover" as they come under fire from voters for "threatening to take away sick people's health care." Hawley filed a lawsuit that would end insurance protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and Politico writes that Hawley is facing "an especially difficult tightrope walk" in trying to claim that he supports these protections while actively trying to take them away. Polls have consistently found that health care is Missouri voters' top concern, and Politico notes that 75 percent of all voters say it's "very important" to keep insurance protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
