“Modern Democrats are Marxists. In a push-back to the preferred doctrine of modern democrats U.S. Senator Josh Hawley gives a passionate opening remark during the senate committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.” — The Conservative Treehouse
Josh Hawley served as the 42nd Missouri Attorney General from 2017 to 2019, before defeating two-term Democratic incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill in the 2018 election. At 40, he is the youngest current U.S. senator.
In February 2018, Hawley joined 20 other Republican-led states in a lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
Hawley opposes abortion and has called for the appointment of “constitutionalist, pro-life judges” to the U.S. Supreme Court and other federal courts. He has called Roe v. Wade “one of the most unjust decisions” in American judicial history.
In September 2020, Trump announced that Hawley, Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton were on his shortlistfor nominations to the Supreme Court, should a vacancy occur. Hawley expressed his appreciation but declined the offer, saying, “Missourians elected me to fight for them in the Senate”.
