What’s Next?

Southwest Missouri Democrats
January #TownHall Meeting
Wendsday, 1/15/20 at 7 PM
2001 Empire, Joplin, MO 64804

We will welcome Political Science Professors Darren Botello Samson (PSU) and Will Delehanty (MSSU) and History Professor Will Montz (MSSU) for a panel discussion. Our panel of professors are attending to discuss a pertinent topic, given current events, of Impeachment and the President’s actions regarding Iran. They will speak and answer questions about the increase in our U.S  Presidential powers, the rise of the Imperial Presidency, and how Congressional oversight has been diminished over time. 

If you are feeling stressed about current events we hope you can make plans to join fellow Democrats and attend our January Town Hall.

If you are concerned about President Trump’s actions and regarding Iran and his lack of congressional notification… take action NOW and engage with your legislators!

SPEAK OUT — CALL YOUR U.S. LEGISLATORS
Ask Our Missouri U.S. Senators to VOTE Yes on Democratic Leadership’s proposed War Powers Resolution!


Missouri’s two U.S. Senators are:

Roy Blunt (R) —
D.C. 202-224-5721
Springfield 417-877-7814

Josh Hawley (R) —
D.C. 202-224-6154
Springfield 417-869-4433

The House of Representatives on Thursday voted in favor of a War Powers Resolution meant to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran following an escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran.
The resolution passed, 224-194, mostly along party lines, but both parties had some defectors: eight Democrats voted against the measure and three Republicans voted in favor of it. Independent Rep. Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party last year, also voted in favor of the measure.

We need the Senate to Act! Republican Senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul say they will support Democrats in a resolution to limit President Trump’s war powers. Call Senator Blunt and Senator Hawley and ask them to join Senator Lee and Senator Paul in supporting congressional oversight on presidential powers of war. Let them know you think allowing our current President to continue to act without Congress’s approval erodes our constitutional balance of powers.

 

 

 

Our 7th annual #SWMODems Pie Auction, hosted on Sunday 6/23/19 was a huge success again this year!
