Ten Debate Questions I Would Ask President Obama

  1. Would you sign a bill into law that sought to criminalize offensive religious speech?

  2. Would you support across-the-board actual cuts to the federal budget (i.e., no outlays excluded)? (NOTE: reductions in increases to budgets do not count.)

  3. What percentage of incomes above $250,000 would you consider to be a tax rate at which those individuals are "paying their fair share"?

  4. What would you say to people who remember your statement, "If I don't fix this in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition"?

  5. Considering the United States has the second highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world and is one of the only countries that taxes corporations on foreign revenue, what would you do to improve the American business climate?

  6. If sanctions fail, what concrete steps would you take to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons?

  7. When the number of people on welfare rolls increases, do you see this as a success for the program, or a failure?

  8. Considering the CBO is projecting an 8% annual increase in healthcare costs between now and 2022, what specific steps will you endorse to reverse this trend and cut costs?

  9. What countries in the Middle East do you see as American allies and how will you utilize those alliances to combat Islamist extremism?

  10. Why is the prison at Guantanamo Bay still open?
