We recently caught up with Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA) as he was making a tour of Iowa. We attended an event put together by the Iowa Asian/Latino Coalition and after Congressman Khanna spoke we asked for some time to talk about public policy, trade, economic development, wages and Silicon Valley where the some of the largest tech companies reside. Here is that conversation and what he thinks about giving companies like Facebook and Apple tax dollars...and where it might better be spent for the betterment of all Iowans including rural communities. Watch this space we asked about putting together a technology round table with some of his friends coming to Iowa. Possible?
