Another friend of veterans elected to Congress
(Boise, Idaho) — On Monday BringOurTroopsHome.US, an organization composed of veterans of the Global War on Terror and their civilian allies, praised last week’s swearing-in of Congresswoman Cori Bush of Missouri. As a candidate, freshman Democrat Rep. Bush was proud to sign our Congressional War Powers Protection Pledge.
Rep. Bush joins other signees, including Democratic Reps. Danny K. Davis, Marcy Kaptur, and Jim Himes, Republican Reps. Andy Biggs and Don Bacon, and Senators Cynthia Lummis and Jim Risch, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in pledging to put the U.S. Constitution first when it comes to questions of war and peace.
In November Rep. Bush defeated ten-term incumbent Lacy Clay to represent the people of St. Louis, Missouri. She was featured, along with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in the Netflix documentary Knock Down the House which focused on her original 2018 primary challenge to Clay.
BringOurTroopsHome.US is always happy to work with legislators of either party who put the needs of veterans over the demands of the military-industrial complex.
