Senator Denny Hoskins, CPA @DLHoskins
Please pray for the victims and their families.

Some of the responses:
Faith without works is dead.
Praying doesn’t seem to work, maybe we should try something else.
Please do something to prevent this from happening again. You weren’t elected for your ability to pray, you were elected to pass laws.
Your prayers mean absolutely NOTHING!!! You are a disgrace!
Prayers do not stop bullets common sense gun laws would be a fresh approach. Your pro birth but post birth children are collateral damage it’s GUNS no matter how many children die
This is what Dennys answer is to school shootings. 212 mass shootings in our country so far this yr, when will it happen in Mo.? Blame the elected officials who get rich off the NRA to pass laws that favor GUNS over your child’s life.
No outrage only prayers that don’t stop bullets
You passed #SAPA which was opposed by law enforcement and would prevent federal authorities from helping when (not if) there’s a school shooting in Missouri. You’ve made it easier to buy guns.
You don’t care about any of these people. Spare is your false prayers.
Log off, Denny.
Obviously we’ve been praying for over 20 years. It doesn’t seem to be working because it keeps happening and you all are complicit and choose unfettered access to guns over living, breathing human beings. So you too can STFU.

If you’re an American politician who has opposed gun reforms these past few years and right now you’re having doubts, thinking maybe these kids deaths could have been prevented, maybe you’re somehow responsible, allow me to help.
More important things on my mind. Things you do nothing about.
Children at an elementary school in Uvalde TX are being made target practice and you’re talking about fing gas prices!!
And 15 people died today. 14 of them children and one teacher.
Another school shooting today; what is the GOP doing to address gun violence?
Thoughts and prayers as usual.
And how many mass shootings have we had???
It’s been 3,448 days since Sandy Hook and we have yet to pass meaningful legislation to stop mass shootings.
Now there was another elementary school shooting today in Texas.
The GOP is only concerned with protecting the guns.
14 children and 1 teacher woke up, the start of a normal day. 14 children and 1 teacher aren’t coming home.
15 people died at an elementary school in Texas today. Care to comment?
There has been 27 school shooting this year. 27 in under 6 months. Any statement on that? Any ideas or solutions or just thought and prayers?
Anything else of note happen today?
This is the nth time we have had a mass shooting in this country. That is actually something we can do something about. But you don’t care. Go get lost.
Let’s see, how many days with a mass shooting?
14 ELEMENTARY KIDS DEAD 1 TEACHER
Speaking of 15 .. did you hear about the 15 people killed at the elementary school today?
14 elementary kids are dead. I think that is more important.
14 children were slaughtered today you sick empty souled bastards.
14 children and a teacher are dead from a school shooter in an elementary school in Texas. Texas were one needs no@permit, no registration and no background checks. Last week of school. Parents that were planning summer holidays now have to plan funerals. When will you do somethi
And more children killed in a school. Gas is the least of my concerns. [….]
I was certain this was going to be about another mass shooting but no
Gas prices I can deal with.
Having my kid gunned down in school, not so much.
Nice deflection though.
Speaking of 15, its been confirmed that 14 students and 1 teacher were killed in a mass shooting today at an elementary school.
How many days in a row for school shootings?
134 children are ready dead this year in the US from gun violence.
You were saying?
I’ll gladly pay $20/gallon if it’ll stop gun violence.
Another school shooting, but let’s talk about gasoline prices. What does GOP want to say about guns?
15 Americans gunned down today in Texas due to @GOP .
FOURTEEN CHILDREN were murdered today you asswipes.
To the human behind the account: 14 children lost their lives, have you no shame?
No. This has been another edition of short answers to simple questions.
Did you hear the news coming out of Texas?
I am now convinced that you are evil. And evil must be purged.
How many mass shootings in the last 15 days?
This is the third day this week with a mass shooting. Let’s focus on what’s most important
14 children and a teacher were killed in Texas.
I’m sure the timing on this tweet is TOTALY coincidental and not a smokescreen AT ALL [….]
Piper for Missouri @piper4missouri
When you’re brave enough to put your hot takes on the web, but not brave enough to let folks comment […] One of Denny’s constituents tagged him in one of my FB posts just to lure him into a response since he won’t speak to his constituents. Very typical of MO GOP politicians.

“…The FDA is investigating complaints of four infant illnesses from three states. All four cases related to these complaints were hospitalized and Cronobacter may have contributed to a death in one case. The FDA has initiated an onsite inspection at the facility. Findings to date include several positive Cronobacter sakazakii results from environmental samples taken by the FDA and adverse inspectional observations by the FDA investigators. A review of the firm’s internal records also indicate environmental contamination with Cronobacter sakazakii and the firm’s destruction of product due to the presence of Cronobacter…” (February 17, 2022)

Has Biden explored using the Defense Production Act to reopen the formula plant his FDA closed, or is he going to continue to just sit around 10:20 AM · May 12, 2022
Some of the responses:
When bacteria is found, production stops, everything there is thrown out, sanitized, then re inspected to make sure there’s no trace of it left. Then production can start again, and all of this is a long process. Don’t endanger our babies!
For right wingnuts “pro-life” ends right after birth.
The plant was shut down because they were putting out contaminated formula and lying to the FDA about it. Instead of upgrading dated and failing equipment, the company issued stock buy-backs. But why let a few facts get in your way??
So you want to produce contaminated baby formula? So much for being pro life.
We don’t want tainted baby formula. Could you explain why the plant was closed by the FDA?
So you want them to reopen before making the necessary repairs so MORE babies don’t die? Doesn’t seem very “pro-life” to me…
The Senator is admitting capitalism can’t fix this problem – he wants government to control the production
That’s socialism, right Senator?
“Joe Biden isn’t making baby formula! I feel anxiety!” [….]
“The most dangerous place to stand in Washington D.C. is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone” – Charles P. Pierce
The plant’s problems killed multiple babies. It can’t just be “reopened.” Formula production doesnt work that way. The problem leading to contamination must be found and fixed, which takes time. Looking for political points by deceiving about why the plant was closed. Disgusting.
Are you missing your formula for lunch?
1/ So you’re saying that a plant which responsibly recalled bacteria-contaminated formula that had already killed two babies (you know, those creatures you don’t care about after they’re born) should be re-opened so that they can produce more contaminated formula?
Yeah, if a private company wants to sell contaminated products that kill babies, why should government intervene? What’s a few babies?
You want to feed American babies tainted formula, Josh?
They resolved their issues and responded to the 483 on Apr 8, & it takes 10-16 weeks to make formula. They got permission to restart limited protection on May 11th.
Maybe keep up, and next time don’t cut FDA’s budget so they can’t inspect like they should.
Awwe, is little baby Joshy needing his baby formula?
The plant is closed due to bacterial contamination that killed babies. That has to be cleared out and corrected so more babies aren’t killed. But then again you think a politician using his sister’s address in MO makes him a resident.
Why would you want babies to drink contaminated formula that could kill them?
Sure, immediately reopen a production facility that was turning out tainted baby food that killed two infants before the source of the contamination can be identified and dealt with, right?
Sit back and let the rational, sensible adults handle the situation, okay.
So you wanted them to keep making contaminated baby formula?
Why do you want newborns to die, Josh?
“Party of life…”
Until they’re born and then whatever.
Capitalism fails again. Let’s blame Biden.
U S. Senator posits tainted formula is better than no formula at all.
You want the government to force a company to produce contaminated baby formula, did I get that right?
you really thought you did somethin here huh dude
Why was it closed, Josh.
Why was the formula plant closed by the FDA, Josh.
C’mon, bud, I know thinking doesn’t get Republicans elected, but you can figure this one out, Josh.
“Dear America, Sorry about Josh Hawley, Sincerely, Missouri”
This guy is actually a Senator? Crazy
Let’s hear it for Yale Law School, folks
Billions in stock buy backs.
That’s what the babies really deserved.
Last time I heard, it was OUR FDA, not Bidens .. . it works for all of usl
Do you understand why the FDA had to close a plant that produced toxic babyformula? If not, ask an adult around you to help.
Tell me you don’t understand the problem, or how the government works, without saying you don’t understand the problem, or how the government works.

The Democrats’ radical pro-abortion bill would disenfranchise every voter in Missouri, overturn our state laws – and give the power to DC Democrats 2:30 PM · May 11, 2022
As usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:
So all women in your state are pro life 100%? I find that very hard to believe.
So do they.
Senator Hawley abortion care is part of women’s health care so if you oppose abortion access than you are for restricting women’s health care which would relegate women to second class citizens.
You would know something about “disenfranchise (ing) voters”, huh?! But in this case, Repubs are attempting to ignore the will of 70% of the population. A true representative of the people (district &/or state) would LISTEN to the people they represent & vote accordingly.
Reality is it allows women simply to maintain the rights our grandma’s had.
Our daughters/grands will die when go to hospital unexpectedly, require abortion type procedure to save their life but it’s unavailable due to politics. 1000’s of women will die.
Yes, the point of rights is that they can’t be taken away by a majority that wants to hurt some people.
How do you claim to be a “Constitutional lawyer” without knowing any of the basics?
And if they can’t be taken away by a majority, they certainly shouldn’t be taken away by a small but vocal minority.
Maybe your laws should stay the fuck out of women’s bodies?
Hawley and his DC GOP colleagues are putting lives of pregnant people in jeopardy b/c they think it will keep them in power. If you continue to elect them you are taking away the right of your sister, spouse, daughter, nieces, neighbors to access healthcare.
Hard to believe Hawley is an Ivy league graduate. Does he not take polls of voters? I live in MO and am pro-choice.
Keep abortion legal, Hawley.
Don’t just say something.
As I recall, every voter in Missouri was disenfranchised when the state legislature struck down TWO Constitutional amendments voted by the PEOPLE of Missouri to draw legitimate voting districts and keeping dark money out of politics
How would you know what Missouri voters want? Book tours, promoting candidates in other states, going to conferences in other states and going on media shows to express your disapproval of anything that Democrats suggest. Josh Hawley, Senator from anywhere but Missouri!
The bill is neither “radical” or “pro-abortion”, but it will sustain the freedoms women have known since 1973.
“Radical pro-abortion bill” in Hawley speak being “a bill that would allow women to make their own healthcare decisions without busybody, white and overwhelmingly male Republicans having a say”
STOP. I am a Missourian and you dont even come close to speaking for me.
No it will give women the power to make their own choices
This makes no sense
“Dear America, Sorry about Josh Hawley, Sincerely, Missouri”
You don’t even live in Missouri, Josh.
No it gives women the power over their own bodies. No uterus, no opinion!
How does having rights disenfranchise me? I’ll need you to explain it.
You don’t live in Missouri.
Do you live in Missouri?
How would it disenfranchise every MO voter? I’m pretty sure the whole state doesn’t vote the same way you do.
Says the man whose residence is in Virginia.
I am one of your constituents and I vehemently disagree with you. It’s a woman’s right to choose, not yours.
What exactly do you get paid to do?
Virginian says what?
You don’t even live in MO. What do you care?
Maybe you should try living here and then you can talk about us like you know anything
How does it disenfranchise anyone? And how would it overturn your state laws? As of now, abortion is still legal. And you are still a traitor.
