Archer, Loebsack debate in Newton


Newton —

"I think it went well," Loebsack said. He felt he articulated a clear distinction between himself and his opponent. He does not think Archer provided enough answers and is still disappointed in the 50 percent comment.

"He's really talking about Social Security recipients," Loebsack said. Loebsack also claimed that Archer meant Medicare recipients and veterans as well. Archer was asked if he meant to include veterans, and he flatly denied this. Archer believes that if there is one group of Americans who deserve the best care, and respect, it is veterans.
