Male Announcer: This is what [light music] Iowa could be.  Enough money to fix our schools, hire more teachers, and provide health care to every child who needs it.  [music stops].  

[military/threatening sound] But defense contractors want us to buy new fighter jets instead--like the F-22 for $64 billion.

We already have the world's best fighter.  Why spend billions to replace it?
[light music] Let's move our money.  Call 1 877-IOWA MOM.  

This year Iowans can get the real issues into the debate.  

Invest in kids, not Pentagon waste.
