At tonight’s monthly Johnson County Democratic Central Committee meeting the committee passed the following motion:

On Wednesday, January 27th President Obama ended his State of the Union Speech with this exhortation:

The spirit that has sustained this nation for more than two centuries lives on in you, its people. We have finished a difficult year. We have come through a difficult decade. But a new year had come. A new decade stretches before us. We don’t quit. I don’t quit. Let’s seize this moment – to start anew, to carry the dream forward, and to strengthen our union once more.

We, the Johnson County, Missouri Democratic Central Committee, urge our representatives in Congress, Senator McCaskill and Representative Skelton, to not quit. To seize the moment and carry forward our Democratic agenda of affordable health care for all and programs that get Americans back to work.

The motion passed unanimously.
