Watch this space for more information. The party/dinner for Dec 5th is being postponed because of the snow and sleet that is forecast for Thursday. We will be setting a new date soon.
Missouri has the chance to expand Medicaid to cover 260,000 working people.
However, Monday night the Missouri State Senate voted against putting Medicaid Expansion in the budget.
The key committee in the Senate to get Medicaid going again is the Appropriations Committee. Thankfully, they are kind enough to be traveling to O’Fallon this Saturday, to talk about driver’s licenses and gun ownership. We need to take this opportunity to have a different conversation with them, one about saving lives, creating jobs and passing Medicaid Expansion.

You will find out what this public forum is all about here at the MO NRA website http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-legislation/2013/4/missouri-right-to-carry-permit-privacy-update.aspx
But we’re tired of them diverting attention away from what’s really important for working Missourians who can afford insurance and is the best bet we have for increasing jobs in MO
Join us at the Spencer Road Library on Feb 20th at 7pm to view the movie that tells it all.
ALEC EXPOSED – a worrisome marriage of corporations and politicians, which seems to normalize a kind of corruption of the legislative process — of the democratic process–in a nation of free people where the government is supposed to be of, by, and for the people, not the corporations. At an extravagant hotel gilded just before the Great Depression, corporate executives from Koch Industries, the tobacco giant R.J. Reynolds, State Farm Insurance, and other corporations were joined by their “task force” co-chairs — all Republican state legislators — to approve “model” legislation. They jointly head task forces of what is called the “American Legislative Exchange Council” (ALEC).
Further demonstrating the involvement of extreme corporate front groups, the so-called “right to work” legislation introduced by MO Rep. Eric Burlison and co-sponsored by MO Speaker Tim Jones comes directly from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a Progress Missouri analysis has shown.
If we don’t have an informed electorate we don’t have a democracy. So I don’t care how people get the information, as long as they get it. Jim Lehrer

St. Charles County Democrats Volunteer in our community. Join us on Sat Dec 1 at Salvation Army Food Drive Wehrenberg Theater Mid Rivers Mall from 3:30 to 5:30pm We need 10 volunteers to collect, stack and box the canned goods that come in. To participate with us call John Callahan @ 314-922-0248 This is our 3rd Year, Because Democrats Care!
…here’s a suggestion: buy locally to strengthen the economy — and eat fresh, unprocessed food to strengthen YOU.
St. Charles County is home to many farmers’ markets that offer beautiful, seasonal fruits and vegetables that come from right here in Missouri; not from Brazil, not from Mexico, but from farms within driving distance of where the produce is sold.
The more we buy these gems of nature, the more the farmers who sell them can afford to grow. And the more we eat of these delicious, nutrient-dense foods, the healthier we become.
But wait; there’s more! Trimming the distance our produce has to travel from field to table trims gasoline consumption, carbon emissions, and, of course, the price.
You may have noticed during a recent supermarket trip or dinner out that food prices are climbing steadily, and this upward trend is showing no signs of reversal. The long, hot summer of 2012 delivered a sucker punch to the processed-food industry by drying up the American corn crop. This industry depends on high fructose corn syrup for most of the products it puts on supermarket shelves and for the ethanol products it puts in gas station storage tanks.
Buying fresh, in-season, inexpensive produce at local farmers’ markets is the equivalent of getting a tax break without waiting for Washington to bestow one upon us.
So where can you find such miracles of economy and nutrition? Here are a few locations we can personally recommend:

St. Charles County Democrats work hard to get people elected who share their values and who care about making our county, our state and our nation a good and free place to live for all. But volunteering in the election process is not the only way to create a better America.
We believe that we achieve those goals through helping out our neighbors right here in our own community, our own St. Charles County. Over the years we’ve participated in many fundraisers with other community groups, non-profits and charities. We’ve also promoted events with speakers to educate our members and the general populace on crucial issues facing our county and state.
Click here to see the Community Involvement Initiatives we participate in.
Here is a partial list of the events or groups that the St. Charles County Democrats have partnered with: Interfaith Partnership, Youth in Need, Habitat for Humanity, Saturday Jubilee (Operation Food Search), Martin Luther King Service Day, Countywide Baby Shower, Our Lady’s Inn, The International Institute, Operation Stream Clean, St. Charles County Homeless and Indigent Count. In 2006, we organized our own memorial service which honored the surviving families of the Iraq War casualties who were from the state of Missouri.
See the St. Charles Democrats in action.
