Ask Obama, Romney: Patch is Collecting Reader Questions for the 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.

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!

Patch readers were fired up during the Oct. 3 presidential debate, talking on our live chat and joining us at watch parties throughout the suburbs:

With the GDP dropping from 3.1 in 2010 to 1.5 in 2011 and 1.6 in 2012 how will your current policies get the GDP up to 4 or 5 to turn the economy around and reduce the unemployment rate?

What will your administration do to protect homeowners from losing their homes to foreclosure? What rules can be made to help people who have already lost their homes to foreclosure get back on track with a very poor credit score? The existing "dance" with modifications being made on homes underwater is an absolute joke. Americans were not given a bailout like the banks were but they are the HUGE losers in this, myself included. The system is set up where the banks win using pre existing rules that were in place 5-6 years ago but need changing to update the current needs and the judges are all on their side leading people to the slaughter and the street while countless homes sit empty. What will your administration do to force the banks, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae etc to bridge the gap on underwater loans thereby "making homes affordable" for the true owners to actually remain there without the stress of foreclosure and living in the street or in crowded accomodations elsewhere? What WILL your administration to do help EVERY AMERICAN have a roof over their head and not keep rules in place that allow banks to get richer? Credit default swaps, mortgage assignment fraud and the very flawed MERS system are veritable reasons countless Americans should STILL BE in their homes yet the court and system sided with the banks NOT them. As an American leader, what WILL YOU DO ASAP to fix this problem???

Why do you need to have 50 unelected and unvetted Czars making decisions that affect all citizens of this nation. Isn't that what your Congressionally approved cabinet members are appointed for. When was the last time you pumped a gallon of gas on your own dime. Do you think that your 190 rounds of golf, your constant appearances on tv talk shows are more important than holding a press conference, meeting with the prime minister of Isreal or writing the family of a Marine killed in combat. Do Constitutional limits on the power of the Executive Branch mean anything to you. When people call you a former law professor at the Univ of Chicago, do you think you should correct them.
