"living in iowa we have just an amazing opportunity that other country, in fact across the world just don't have," said former chairman of the woodbury county democratic party, rick mullin. caucus-goers will be gathering at 13 different locations...10 of those being in sioux city on february 1st. " and something to keep in mind is your precinct because that determines where you'll be caucusing. for example if you're precinct 18 or 19 you'll be caucusing here at cavalry lutheran church." first... "you'll have a chance to sign the nominating papers for candidates who are running for office. you'll be able to pick up some literature and information about different campaigns. by 7pm we want everyone to be there and be signed in so we can start the caucus," said former chairman woodbury county democratic party, rick mullin. at that point announcement s will be made and democrats will group together depending on the candidate of their choice. if a group doesn't have enough people, they have to join another group... "or they can go to the largest group. for instance if bernie sanders had the most people you'd say hey bernie

hillary's group and give them all our delegates or you can give us one or two and make us viable said former chairman woodbury county democratic party, rick mullin. there is a final hard count, and then it's reported to des moines. caucus-goers can stick around afterward for platform proposals and party committee elections...or they head home knowing their voice was heard and their vote was counted. >> the entire caucusing process usually lasts less than two hours. to find your precinct, visit inside the story. as we get closer to caucus steam. ktiv's tiffany lane spoke to a siouxland professor about platforms candidates have established over the last few months.

saying hey, this is a guy that you know, isn't necessarily a puppet to the political system," said briar cliff university freshman stone conley. "and then the other person would be donald trump who has his own money. he doesn't listen. he doesn't take money from big corporations." but how are presidential candidates' platforms interpreted? we take a look into the affordable care act with a siouxland professor. "hillary clinton has said we shouldn't scrap obamacare even if there's problems with obamacare, we can work on solutions to fix those kind of things," "on the republican side what you see from trump, cruz and rubio is more of an approach that says again, let's scrap obamacare. but they're not calling obviously for replacing it with a single payer federal health care system." bernie sanders, who calls himself a "socialist" is calling for that single payer health care system to replace obamacare. but what does socialism mean? we asked some students what they think? "being social like even through media and stuff," said nelly ruiz, a briar cliff university junior. "like i know even on snapchat he has his own filter now so that's like kind of what i would assume that to be."

briar cliff university professor kyle irvin breaks down sanders' interpretation of socialism. "a populist kind of looks at things and says we're going to use government to kind of redistribute things in a more fair and equitable manner as he sees it," said irvin. "right, so if you're going to do that you're going to have a fairly strong governmental system to take in more money because the taxes are higher and redistribute that money." when tying sanders philosophy of socialism into education, he has proposed the idea of free college tuition. "if everybody's able to have access to college we'd have a more educated population which isn't a bad thing," said briar cliff university junior nicholas harris. "i just would be interested in seeing how he plans on funding that." irvin says with free college comes bigger bills in the future. "most people who have looked at that have said, you know taxes are going to have to go up," said irvin. "and i think bernie has said the way to raise those taxes would be primarily on the upper income folks in the country." when it comes to higher education, hillary clinton is proposing lower interest rates on college loans. "the proportion of your budget that has to go to student loans, if that's a large portion of your budget, based on kind of your initial salary, that's less you know goods and services that you

the economy," said irvin. both parties have talked about making college more affordable. but multiple republican candidates take a different approach. "donald trump talks a lot about reducing regulations on business to free business up and create more jobs for students as they come out from college," said irvin. the differences in platforms leave people with many choices. in sioux city, tiffany lane,

"a populist kind of looks at things and says we'rrgoing to uss government to kind of redistribute things in a more fair and equitable manner as he sees it," said irvin. "right, so if you're going to do that you're going to have a fairly strong governmental system to take in more money because the taxes are higher and redistribute that money." when tying sanders philosophy of socialism into education, he has proposed the idea of free college t ttion. f everybody's able t thave accece to college we'd have a more educated population which isn't a bad thing," said briar cliff university junior nicholas harris. "i just would be interested in seeing how he plans on funding that." irvin says with free college comes bigger bills in the future. "most people who have looked at that have said, you know taxes are going to have to go up," said irvin.
