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.

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!

President Obama: Why does your administration continue to use drone missiles to ostensibly target terrorists when it has been repeatedly found that they are killing innocent people-especially women and children-instead of their intended targets? Mr. Romney, Would you use drone missiles to target terrorists? If so,why?

For President Obama: Was it wrong for the Rohnert Park 50th anniversary celebration to exclude the disabled by hijacking their parking spaces?

For Governor Romney: I know you favor a "free market" approach to health care, which I assume means that private, for-profit insurance companies should manage the nation's insurance. I would like to know how they will do this effectively, considering the fact that up until now, 30 cents of every health care dollar has gone to overhead: a combination of advertising, lobbying, and profit. A non-profit, such as Medicare, spends about 5% on overhead. Since their spending is high as well, how will you control costs while insurance companies are presumably making money from peoples' illnesses?

And what was Mr. Obama's experience? That he lived in Kenya? That he was 1st term Senator from Illinois, the state with the highest paid teachers and the highest dropout rate?
