So, here in good old Iowa, we have had the shift as with many other states that went from blue to red. A new, well really old actually, Republican Governor and part of our congress. Now, all of these people pretty much ran on 2 issues. Jobs and the economy. So far, here are the priorities that they have put first: Stop gay marriage Discriminate based on religious beliefs Stop early pre-school (or at least make it more difficult) And now – ban abortions and many forms of contraceptives.
