Mitt, Why did you support the draft, and the Vietnam war, then when it came time to serve your country you went to France to set out the war? Don't you think thats a slap in the face to every man and woman that ever served their country?

President Obama, why won't you release your college student loan information and how you repaid these loans, on time or delinquent?

According to Federal News Radio, the U.S. government agencies spent $135 billion in 2008 on cost-plus type contracts and this number has continued to increase. What will each candidate do to remedy this as a cost saving measure for the American people?

A Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) of 1 cent per $100.00 of stock, bond and derivative trades would raise an estimated $200 billion per year in new revenue. Would each candidate pledge to support such a modest tax?

What do you consider affordable heath insuance? To have heath insurance for me and 2 kids is over $900 a month plus $2,500 deductable per person this price is close to a second mortgage payment for middle class which alot of people are stuggling to keep up with their first mortgage. We do not have insurance and can not afford to be forced into it either, we could loose our home with that kind of monthy bill. I guess I'll get fined (or atcually taxed) for not having it.
