and imaginary issues. Planned Parenthood selling baby parts? That might want to believe that happens. Mexico "sending" illegal immigrants into the US? The proof that happens? Trump "talks to people" and they tell him things. Walker claims Wisconsin has done a great job recovering from the economic problems of the Great (Bush) Recession. When the question was, how come your state has lagged so far behind in its recovery (though they didn't mention Minnesota, the Democratically controlled state that did the opposite of Walker and has fared so very much better). They still want to repeal Obamacare, and replace it with, well, mumble, mumble, mumble. They don't like the idea of national education standards. They want that left to the varying whims of the states. So, in the world of global competition, they're OK with some states teaching science based on the Bible.

But the biggest issue in the world, climate change, got not one word. A couple of them did say they want to disband the EPA. Income inequality? No mention. They just promise to grow the economy. How? Mumble, mumble, mumble. Citizens United? C'mon, if anything, they like that. That's their primary source of advertising money. Student debt? Somebody said the federal government should have no involvement in education, which likely means they want to disband the Department of Education as well as the EPA.
