Submit Questions for Obama and Romney to Possibly Answer During Next Presidential Debate

If you have a question for the candidates, submit it in the comments section below and it could be asked during the televised Oct. 16 Town Hall Presidential Debate.

If this past Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance for the presidential candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University in Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

Patch is asking you, our readers, to participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch's parent company Aol, along with Google and Yahoo, to take questions from web users across the country.

Why are my questions rejected? Is there something I'm not doing correctly?

Washington legislators & media perpetuate a false deficit narrative holding that Social Security and Medicare are primary deficit drivers. Social Security is a separate fund, not contributing to the deficit, and health care costs in general are the problem. Question: When are we finally going to talk about improved Medicare-for-All as a primary means to deficit reduction? Eliminating for-profit health insurance and negotiating bulk drug rates would greatly reduce health costs and the deficit.

Do you feel the Department of Veterans Affairs should consider buying goods and services from service disabled veteran owned small businesses first?

This is similar to a question asked in the 2008 presidential election. Is it a right or a privilege for everyone,no matter their financial situation, to have the same access to and the same quality of health care as both President Obama and Governor Romeny, without having to choose between paying for health insurance or paying for food, water, and shelter. Do we, as human beigns, all have the right, no matter our circumstance, to fair and equal care, and to not have to worry about unforseeable health concerns causing financial ruin for our families?

Mr. President and Mr. Romney: I know a little bit about the U.S. Government (being a lawyer and all). How would each of you, specifically, make changes to Planned Parenthood, the U.S, Budget and/or the funding of the U.S. Military? I know you can't do these things without the approval of Congress. How do you intend to implement the changes you have promised? Please be specific. Debbie Warrenton, VA
