A Presidential candidate forum focused on Native American issues is underway at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Sioux City. 

The forum is named after Native American activist Frank LaMere of Siouxland who died in June. 

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been dogged by criticism since her claims of Native American ancestry have been disproved, apologized for her actions.

I know that I have made mistakes.  I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned . . . a lot.”  

071919 Beto Health Care Plan

Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke today announced a new health care plan that would give relief to caregivers. He provided details of the plan today at AARP-Des Moines Register candidate forum at the Sioux City Convention Center. 

O’Rourke says his proposal would offer credit to caregivers who leave the labor force in order to care for a child or other family member. He says now, when you take time to care for a family member, you are effectively penalized by Social Security.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will spend much of the coming week talking about his approach to health care.  He will be Le Mars tomorrow afternoon and in Sioux City tomorrow night. 

Today,  Biden has unveiled a plan that would add a "public option" to the 2010 health care overhaul known as "Obamacare," with expanded coverage paid for by raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Biden hopes his positioning as Obamacare's chief defender helps him on several fronts.
