Tweet your debate questions
The Democratic presidential debate is this Saturday, December 19. Join us in urging debate moderators to ask at least one question about the corrosive effect of big money and corporate influence in politics. In particular we want to raise awareness about the influence of the military-industrial complex and the for-profit prison industry on policies that boost their bottom line but don't make the world any safer.

Here are some suggestions:
Will @DavidMuir ask #DemDebate candidates how to shape foreign policies for public good, not corporate profit? #WhoProfits
Will @MarthaRaddatz ask the #DemDebate candidates how they will end the 34,000 daily immigrant detention quota? #WhoProfits #endthequota
Will @DavidMuir ask #DemDebate candidates if they’ll limit firms like Corrections Corp of America & GEO from setting #Immigration law?
|@MarthaRaddatz, ask the #DemDebate candidates how to ensure war profiteers don’t have undue influence on defense policy. #WhoProfits
|@MarthaRaddatz, ask the #DemDebate candidates how will you stop corporations that profit from war and prisons from having undue influence?
|@MarthaRaddatz, with $1T plan for new nukes, how will #DemDebate candidates ensure policy serves security, not profit motive? #WhoProfits
The debate is sponsored by ABC News, the New Hampshire Union Leader, and Saint Anselm College. It will take place at 8 PM in the Carr Center on the Saint Anselm campus, moderated by ABC's "World News Tonight" Anchor David Muir with CNN Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz. WMUR-TV was dropped as a debate sponsor due to its failure to negotiate with unionized workers in the station's Manchester studio.
Two Republican debates will take place before the New Hampshire Primary:
- Thursday, January 28, sponsored by Fox News, broadcast from Iowa with moderators Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly, and Chris Wallace.
- Saturday, February 6 at 8 p.m. at Saint Anselm College in Manchester NH.
