Patch Is Collecting Questions for the Next Presidential Debate

Hey Millburn, if you have a question for the Obama and Romney, 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.

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!

Why are we spending billions of dollars on a failed war on drugs (especially marijuana) when legalizing and regulating them like alcohol would increase tax revenues and save enforcement and imprisonment costs (roughly $400B benefit is almost half the deficit)?

Currently people who are taking regular medications are required to see their doctors before being able to get their prescriptions refilled. What do you think about reducing healthcare costs by making more medications available over the counter; such as hypertension, asthma, certain hormones, and others? This would save the cost of up to 4 visits per year, probably about $800 per patient.

For Mr. Romney. Why are Republicans so opposed to requiring insurance companies to cover birth control pills in the same way they are required to cover Viagra?

I know it may seem like my comments are all about drugs, but they are really about: 1) balancing the budget, 2) reducing the financial burden on states & the federal government of non-violent drug related imprisonments, 3) reducing healthcare costs particularly for chronic illnesses and the elderly, and 4) clarifying the real question about birth control (It is NOT about taxpayers paying for contraceptives. It is about making insurance companies offer it on their formularies - as Congress made sure they did Viagra.)

Under the banner of "national security", unmanned drones are being used to "protect" against "terrorism" and in the process, killing hundreds of non-terrorists and other innocent, if not unfortunately located people. How is what the American government doing in these operations, any different than the "evil" of wrongly killing those undeserving that it claims to be fighting against? Is the value of their innocent lives somehow less than the innocent American lives this "collateral damage" is being paid in blood by people who happen to not have been born with red white and blue blood?
