ICYMI: St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Board: Health care issue isn’t dead, though GOP is trying

Last week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board warned Republicans not to “underestimate the power of [the health care] issue to sway votes this fall," highlighting in particular the popularity of provisions that require insurance companies to cover those with pre-existing conditions. According to a poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, “84 percent of Democrats, 68 percent of independents and 59 percent of Republicans favored” protecting those with pre-existing conditions.

ICYMI: U.S. Chamber of Commerce: “Trade works for Missouri. Tariffs don’t.”

Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce released a new analysis highlighting the impact of President Trump's tariffs on Missouri's economy. According to the report, over 800,000 Missouri jobs and nearly $900 million in total state exports are being threatened by the Trump administration's new tariffs. The U.S. Chamber writes that because of these tariffs, "retaliatory tariffs imposed by other countries on U.S. exports will make American-made goods more expensive, resulting in lost sales and ultimately lost jobs here at home."

ICYMI: St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Board: Negative impact of Trump’s trade policy is hitting home locally

Yesterday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board highlighted the impact of President Trump's "ill-advised" trade war, noting that it "continues to inflict a heavy local toll" on Missouri's economy. President Trump's tariffs have Missouri pork and soybean producers reeling, one of southeast Missouri's largest employers on the brink of closing, and Harley-Davidson moving its production overseas to "more business friendly climes abroad." In addition, the editorial board writes, "Trump’s administration has worked to undermine the health care system and social-services network that helps working-class families survive."

Missourians Protest Josh Hawley; Ask Why He is Working to End Protections for Those with Pre-Existing Conditions

Today, dozens of Missourians gathered outside of Josh Hawley's campaign office opening in Springfield to protest Hawley's decision to file a lawsuit that would end health insurance protections for individuals who have pre-existing conditions. Protestors demanded that Hawley explain why he is actively putting health care for nearly the 2.5 million Missourians with pre-existing conditions at risk. In February, Hawley and 19 other Republican attorneys general filed a lawsuit asserting that requiring insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions is unconstitutional. Missouri is among the top 11 states with the highest levels of adults with pre-existing conditions.

Just last month on the campaign trail Hawley criticized the practice of traveling to Beverly Hills to fundraise, asking "what's wrong with Missouri? Why do you have to go to Hollywood?"
