Governors Terry Branstad and Tom Vilsack: On the Monday, October 22 edition of The Iowa Journal

October 19, 2007

(Johnston, Iowa) – Monday’s episode of The Iowa Journal  will feature former Iowa Governors Terry Branstad and Tom Vilsack. The program airs Monday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. The program will be rebroadcast Friday, October 26 at 9 p.m. on statewide IPTV-Plus and will also be available online at Iptv.org.

Having held the state's highest office for a combined 24 years consecutively, Branstad and Vilsack discuss access to quality health care, long-term financial security and where they think the presidential candidates should stand on these issues. From Wall Street to Main Street, home foreclosures, driven by dubious mortgages, and growing concerns about pension and retirement funds are shaking the economy.  Across every generation access to health insurance is waning as the number of uninsured Americans has risen.  Learn more about these issues that are key to the future of our country and critical to Iowans' voting decisions.
