    Josh Hawley On The Record

    Senator (R), Missouri
    Data taken from https://thenewamerican.com/freedom-i...gislator/23929


    Josh Hawley voted NO on SCRes5 (02/04/2021) [bad vote] - We support. A concurrent resolution setting forth the congressional budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2021 and setting forth the appropriate budget.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR1799 [bad vote] - Paycheck Protection Program Extension. We oppose. The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to bail out or lend funds to business.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on TD 116-1 [bad vote] - We oppose. Protocol to the North Atlantic Treaty of 1949 on the Accession of the Republic of North Macedonia. The United States should stay out of entangling alliances like NATO. Also, the NATO provision that obligates the United States to go to war if any NATO member is attacked undermines the U.S. Constitution’s assignment to Congress the power to declare war.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR1158 [bad vote] - Omnibus Appropriations. We oppose. Many programs within this defense-related minibus are unconstitutional. This bill also is fiscally irresponsible, considering the $26 trillion national debt and projected $3.8 trillion budget deficit.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR5430 [bad vote] - USMCA - We oppose. Congress is not authorized by the Constitution to surrender our national sovereignty to any transnational regional government, including the nascent North American Union.

    Josh Hawley voted NO on SJRes68 [bad vote] - War Powers - We support. According to the U.S. Constitution, only Congress may declare war. It is unfortunate that Congress has to pass a resolution enforcing this, but doing so puts a check on the war powers assumed by recent presidents.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR748 [bad vote] - $3.2 Trillion Coronavirus Stimulus. We oppose. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress authorized to bail out businesses, industries, and people.

    Josh Hawley voted NO on HR6172 [bad vote] - FISA - We support Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to the bill. The amendment would limit FISA authorities and place specific surveillance powers in the hands of non-FISA courts.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR6172 [bad vote] - FISA - We oppose. While many of the proposed FISA modifications positive from a freedom and privacy standpoint, Congress should have instead voted to not reauthorize the FISA and let it expire. Despite the program’s title, the act permits surveillance of Americans who are not charged with any crime.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR1957 [bad vote] - Public Lands - We oppose. Profligate spending needs to be immediately brought under control and deficits eliminated to avoid fiscal disaster. Congress is failing to address its fiscally and constitutionally irresponsible spending habits that yielded an annual federal deficit of $3.1 trillion in fiscal 2020.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on S4049 [bad vote] - Defense Bill 07/01/2020 - We oppose the Senate's decision to table Senator Paul's amendment. It is long past time to bring the troops home. The AUMF that the amendment would repeal has been used broadly by presidents to send troops into foreign conflicts, despite the fact that under the Constitution only Congress may declare war.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on S4049 [bad vote] - Defense Bill 07/21/2020 - We oppose. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government authorized to subsidize private businesses. If such subsidies are allowed, then any business could potentially be subsidized at the expense of any other, with the government essentially picking winners and losers in the marketplace, causing great economic distortion.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on S47 [bad vote] - Public Lands - Oppose. The Constitution does not authorize Congress to purchase private property except “all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”

    Josh Hawley voted NO on SJRes7 [bad vote] - Yemen - Support. Congress has the power to declare war, and it has not authorized any intervention or war in Yemen. Nor should Congress do so since the civil war in Yemen does not threaten the U.S.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR2157 [bad vote] - Disaster Supplemental Appropriations - Oppose. The federal government has no constitutional authority to rebuild areas stricken by natural disasters. Such activity should be undertaken by private companies and charities first, and, as a last resort, handled by local or state governments. Disasters would arguably be handled more effectively this way compared to the feds.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR3401 [bad vote] - Supplemental Border Appropriations - We support Senator Rand Paul’s amendment and oppose the Senate’s vote to kill it. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress authorized to fund the foreign aid funding that Paul sought to eliminate, and which had nothing to do with border appropriations. These types of programs should be handled privately, not with U.S. taxpayers’ money.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR3401 [bad vote] - Supplemental Border Appropriations - We support Senator Rand Paul’s amendment and oppose the Senate’s vote to kill it. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress authorized to fund the foreign aid funding that Paul sought to eliminate, and which had nothing to do with border appropriations. These types of programs should be handled privately, not with U.S. taxpayers’ money.

    Josh Hawley voted NO on S1790 [bad vote] - War Authorization - We support Senator Udall's amendment. Hostilities conducted against a sovereign nation – in this case Iran – constitute an act of war and, thus, constitutionally requires a declaration of war by Congress.

    Josh Hawley voted NO on HR4378 [bad vote] - Spending Cut / Short-term Appropriations - We support Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to the bill. Most of the bill’s spending falls outside the scope of constitutionally authorized federal powers. Also, the federal government must reduce its spending and debt to avert future fiscal disaster. Although 2% might seem small, modest cuts are still better than none at all.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on HR4378 [bad vote] - Spending Cut / Short-term Appropriations - We oppose. Congress is failing to address its fiscally- and constitutionally-irresponsible budgeting and appropriating process that is yielding annual federal deficits of about $1 trillion. This directly contributes to the national debt’s growth.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on S139 [bad vote] - Warrantless Surveillance - During consideration of the bill (S. 139) reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.) introduced an amendment to end NSA collection of communications data that is neither to nor from an approved foreign target, but rather communications “about” a foreign target entirely between American citizens. It would prohibit the FBI and intelligence agencies from searching the NSA database for information on U.S. citizens without first obtaining a warrant.

    Josh Hawley voted YES on PN1857 [bad vote] - On the Nomination PN1857: Haspel Nomination - In March 2018, President Trump nominated Gina Haspel to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who opposed Haspel’s nomination, explained why in a Politico Magazine article: “Haspel ran a secret [CIA ‘black site’] center in Thailand where prisoners were tortured”; “Haspel participated in and helped develop the program that our own government has labeled torture”; and “she helped destroy the very evidence of this program.”

    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Actually, he is from Missouri.

    Although I did not vote for him, he has turned out a lot better than expected.

    I'm waiting for the inevitable stab in the back, though.

    Thanks for the catch ;-)

    Wow, better than expected? Yikes!

    What is the source of this material?

    Who is the "We"?

    I could be wrong and I would never instinctively defend Hawley, but the summaries of proposed legislation can be very difficult to keep in context.

    PS: I am quite sure that Hawley is a neocon with more palatable marketing.

    Josh Hawley is the worst of all worlds left wing fiscally and socially conservative. Josh Hawley is a working class socialist as George Will would say.

    He was one of the main Republican pushers of the stimulus checks that he sponsored with Bernie Sanders months after the recession officially ended. He supported banning stock buybacks. He is pushing a $12k tax credit for people with kids. He sponsored legislation for a $15 minimum wage. He constantly uses the phony or misleading stats about wealth inequality and wage stagnation.

    “We” is the Freedom Index Score, based up on whether the vote is Constitutional or not.

    His lifetime Freedom Index Score is a pathetic 59%. Looks like he is trying trying to “improve” his rating “this year” due to “elections”.
