Senior citizens share their debate thoughts


Senior citizens at Keystone Place in Cedar Rapids watched the first Presidential debate together. 

As they watched they hoped the candidates would address moral issues and the economy.

They want to see more jobs.

When it comes to social issues, residents have opposing viewpoints, some want abortion and gay marriage outlawed while others are in support of both.

But one idea they all seemed to agree on was partisan politics; they feel the candidates need to put their parties aside and think about what's best for the country.

"We are totally divided and it got that way somehow and I want that fixed. I want us to return to the America that I know," said Shirley LaBarr.

After the debate, residents said they wished the candidates had been more clear on their plans to create jobs.
