Benjamin Michael "Ben" McAdams (born December 5, 1974, age 48) is a liberal Democrat politician serving as the current U.S. representative from Utah's 4th district, having previously been the mayor of Salt Lake County, and a state senator before that.

U.S. House of Representatives

2018 election

McAdams ran for United States House of Representatives in 2018 during a blue wave and defeated then-incumbent Never Trumper Republican Mia Love by less than 700 votes out of the nearly 270,000 casted (just over 0.25% of the vote).[1]

Phony "pro-lifer"

Despite having campaigned as supposedly being pro-life,[2] McAdams is a noted Abortion Betrayal who voted in 2011 as a state senator against allowing health care providers be granted the right to refuse performing abortions and in 2012 against a required 72-hour waiting period bill.[3] In addition, he has received an "A+" rating from Planned Parenthood in 2019[4] and currently only a "D" from the Susan B. Anthony List.[5]


McAdams co-sponsored the left-wing Climate Action Now Act in March 2019.[6]

McAdams voted along with his party line in favor of the radical Equality Act.[7]

Rep. McAdams voted on July 16, 2019 along with all House Democrats in condemning Donald Trump's supposedly "racist" comments.[8]

McAdams voted against the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019.[9]

Rep. McAdams voted along with his party line for H.R.3, a Democrat bill aimed at lowering drug prices under the false assumption that such can easily be accomplished if only greater regulations were put on pharmaceutical companies.[10]

McAdams supported[11] and voted in favor of the impeachment sham against Donald Trump,[12] having previously joined his party line to block a House Republican effort to censure Nancy Pelosi.[13]

McAdams voted in favor of the implementation of the USMCA.[14]

Rep. McAdams broke from his party line in February 2020 in voting against a Democrat-led bill to limit President Trump's executive powers after the latter had successfully led the killing of the terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.[15]

Coronavirus infection

It was announced on March 23, 2020 that McAdams had been hospitalized over a coronavirus infection, experiencing a severe shortness in breathing.[16] He later recovered by April 8, 2020,[17] asserting that he took hydroxychloroquine during his recovery and that it might have made a difference.[18]
