Submit Your Questions for Obama and Romney for the Next Presidential Debate

Through a partnership with the Commission on Presidential Debates, Patch is collecting questions for the presidential candidates that 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.

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.

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

Here goes anyway, Governor Romney, you refuse to give us any details of your budget plan on the grounds that you want to make it a bipartisan effort. Please tell us exactly what you would do if you had perfect cooperation from Congress.

President Obama, I do not believe the average American is aware of the amount of Executive Orders you have endorsed since becoming President. Please explain to the American People why you have issued 923 Executive Orders since becoming President, when all Presidents combined since President Teddy Roosevelt have issued a total of 121 Executive Orders. You owe the American People an explanation, because many of your orders infringe on the Freedom of "We the People".

Mr Romney it is obvious that President Obama will bring up your financial status in a negative way at the next debate. I would suggest considering the following response: Mr President there is no need for me to apologize for my financial status. In comparison, you had no financial credit in the past, none at present and none for the future. In order to further your political career, you are borrowing money from China using your grandfather's credit.

Mr President. Considering your support of the Occupy Wall Street movement and your 2008 campaign promise to rein in Wall Street forces and their risky practices that you claim forced us in to a near depression.. why is it that you are not pushing for the prosecution of MF Global CEO Jon Corzine? Corzine, the former Dem Gov of NJ, CEO of Goldman Sachs, and one of your largest donors during the 2008 campaign led his company in to bankruptcy by misappropriating client funds.. $1.2 billion of which are still missing. Please comment on how your relationship with Corzine allows him to avoid prosecution for illegally using client funds and causing the 7th biggest corporate bankruptcy in our nations history? Mr. President, a follow up question: It is widely known that you were strongly considering appointing Corzine to replace Tim Geithner as our Treasury Secretary. Your VP called Corzine "the smartest guy I know in terms of the economy". Considering your close ties to Corzine, the millions of dollars he brought to your election campaign, and your administration's belief that he was at the "top" of your list to esnure the financial security of the United States .. does it not give the country pause to trust your honesty and judgement as to the direction and leadership of our economy?

One of you wants to use our tax dollars to subsidize the banks and autos while the other wants to use our tax dollars to subsidize the oil and coal industry. Given those two economic policies, can either of you tell me what the difference is? Does it matter if we subsidize company A, or company B? Isn't corporate welfare, corporate welfare? Thank you, Ian McDougal Colorado
