Schlafly Statement on Fox Business/
Wall Street Journal GOP debate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 10, 2015

St. Louis, MO: Phyllis Schlafly, founder and chairman of Eagle Forum, released the following statement in advance of tonight’s Fox Business/Wall Street Journal Republican Presidential Debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

“After the mainstream media’s moderation of the first three Republican debates, we can only hope that tonight’s events will be run professionally,” Schlafly said. “These debates are an opportunity to hear the candidates answer questions and propose policies that are relevant to the lives of everyday Americans. It is not an appropriate venue for the media’s gotcha questions.

“Americans want to hear about issues that impact them. Illegal immigration is the most pressing issue facing our country today, impacting American jobs and living. Sound fiscal policy is completely absent in Washington, ensuring that our future generations will be bankrupt. Both the executive and legislative branches have refused to actually create much less abide by a budget. Both parties seem willing to ignore the massive welfare spending in this country, and Republicans in Congress also seem unwilling to cut off federal funding for the killing and sale of unborn children.

“I advise Fox Business and the Wall Street Journal to use tonight’s opportunity to inspire a meaningful conversation with the candidates on issues that Americans care about.”
