Can you join us this Thursday, Dec. 15, to remind the presidential candidates they must listen to us, the 99%, and not the big-monied 1%?

The GOP Presidential candidates will be back in Iowa this Thursday as they gather in Sioux City for yet another debate. We can expect more of the same pro-corporate, small-government rhetoric.

Before they step in front of the cameras and national airwaves Thursday night, we will take our “People First” message to the campaign offices of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney here in Des Moines that morning.
