War Powers Pledge
The Congressional War Powers Protection Pledge is a project of Bring Our Troops Home that is meant to commit members of the House of Representatives and Senate to obey their oath to the U.S. Constitution and uphold the authority of congressional war powers.
Signatories pledge to the citizens of their state that while in office they will insist that Congress exercise their sole prerogative “to declare war,” as stated in Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.
“While Presidents may respond to sudden attacks against United States territories or military forces, offensive deployments or extended commitments of U.S. military forces must be debated and approved or rejected by Congress,” the pledge reads.
Has your representative pledged to uphold their oath of office?
