The five questions they should really ask at tomorrow’s GOP Senate debate

Wednesday, October 23rd is the first debate for GOP candidates vying for Iowa’s open Senate seat.

The debate is hosted by Americans for Prosperity, a corporate-backed front group for the infamous big-business kingpins Charles and David Koch.

We know the hosts of the debate wouldn’t dare expose the candidates’ true intentions in running for Iowa’s open Senate seat- so we’re doing it for them.

Here’s our top five burning questions for the GOP candidates for Senate.


Candidates Sam Clovis, Joni Ernst, Scott Schaben, Matt Whitaker, David Young, and Mark Jacobs:

1. What are you going to do to expand the wealth of the Koch Brothers & their millionaire friends?

2. What election laws would you change to make it harder for people of color and the elderly to vote?

3. How will you ensure the smooth transfer of Social Security dollars to Wall Street banks?

4. How will you get rid of those pesky environmental regulations that protect Iowa’s water?

5. How will you pass the bag off on working people to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans?
