Iowa Democrats Completely Clueless About The Issues

Last night, the two Democratic candidates for Iowa’s 1st Congressional District demonstrated their complete ignorance and misunderstanding about important issues facing Congress.

Monica Vernon was asked to address voters’ concerns about not having substantial legislative experience. She only worsened the problem by asking when Congress would pass a highway bill, despite the fact is that Congress passed a five-year highway bill last December.

Pat Murphy falsely claimed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is holding the Trans-Pacific Partnership up, when in reality President Obama has not submitted the agreement as legislation to Congress yet.

Last night’s debate just proves that Vernon and Murphy are woefully unprepared on the big issues facing Congress.
