@ Mr. Romney. During the first debate Romney stated he was not proposing a 5 trillion dollar tax cut over several years, but on the other hand he is suggesting a 20% tax cut “across the board” that is neutral. A tax cut of 20%, is around $500 billion in less revenue to the Fed. With US growth around 2% and our GDP around 14 trillion, combined with actual corporate rates in the order of 15%, how does Romney conclude it’s neutral, and what would he cut if his “neutral” scenario doesn’t play out?

@Mr. Romney. On 10/8/2012 Romney stated in what billed as a major foreign policy speech that he would prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. What will Romney do to prevent this, recognizing our adversaries that wanted nuclear weapons, now have them, for example, Russia, China, and North Korea?

If Obamacare is such a good thing, why is Obama, Michelle, his kids and the politicians exempt from it. This is so clear that it is disgusting, He wants Americans to have insurance that he won't have any part of.

@ Mitt Romney, You stated you wanted to cut the taxes for all, You want to cut the rates by 20% accross the board, however you say you are going to close the loopholes in the tax codes to eliminate deductions. You say you are going to do this on a within a "neutral scenario" So I have actually two questions for you. If you cut the rate, but close the loopholes to cover that tax cut, how does that translate to a tax cut? Then # 2, give me your loopholes, and deductions you are going to eliminate, and I mean specifics. Is it the mortgage duduction? the personnel exemptions? child care? what are the specifics? Tell me now before I vote, not after I vote.

@ President Obama, If you get elected to a second term, how are you going to get the Republicans to work with you and not against you? How are you going to reach accross the isle and get our government working again? If our government does not work, how do you expect our nation to work?
