Patch Is Collecting Questions for Obama and Romney During the 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 last 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.

Milwaukee-area Patch sites are 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.

Don’t wait until Nov. 6 to have a say in this year’s election. Share your thoughts in the comments!

Were you one of those that thought that Kennedy would follow the Pope over his advisers or the will of the American people? I find your anti-Mormon bigotry to be distasteful, Vicki.

You may want to rethink your claim that Romney was not truthful when he stated that there is no tax cut for companies that move jobs overseas. The source you posted states that: “Under present law, there are no specific tax credits or disallowances of deductions solely for locating jobs in the United States or overseas. Deductions generally are allowed for all ordinary and necessary expenses paid or incurred by the taxpayer during the taxable year in carrying on any trade or business, which includes the relocation of business units.” I think that Obama is the one that is being untruthful when he makes the specific claim that businesses get tax breaks for moving jobs overseas...

I doubt the candidates can control the questions to that degree. However, both of them often make a superficial reply then launch into an almost unrelated topic from a stump speech, well researched and well stated. I think the fact checkers should also provide a "relevant reply" rating. Then again, what is a moderator supposed to do? Whack the off topic candidate with a rolled up newspaper?

“We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke" President Obama, is this a correct summary of "Obamacare"?
