QUICK CLIP: Here’s Josh Hawley, Lying Through His Teeth About Pre-Existing Conditions

Jun 29, 2018

Hawley Wants to Take Away Healthcare from 2.5 Million Missourians

With Pre-Existing Conditions. He’s Telling Voters the Opposite.


Missouri Attorney General and GOP Senate candidate Josh Hawley is co-counsel on a lawsuit that seeks to strip coverage from Americans with pre-existing conditions — but he’s lying through his teeth to voters about it.

Hawley knows ending pre-existing condition protections is universally unpopular. So, backed into a corner by Missouri’s KOZL, Hawley blatantly lied: “I support coverage for pre-existing conditions. I think insurance companies should be forced to cover pre-existing conditions.”

That’s a lie. Hawley’s lawsuit could strip healthcare from 2.5 million Missourians with pre-existing conditions.

“Josh Hawley will say or do anything to climb the political ladder — even lie about his own lawsuit to strip healthcare from Missourians,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman.“Missouri voters are seeing — yet again — that Josh Hawley is just another partisan politician who will always put himself ahead of Missourians.”
