    I am looking for someone with the ability to fix the economy and create jobs but I will vote for anybody that is running against Obama. America can't afford too much more of him.

    Tax Cuts and Jobs. I would like to hear the Republican nominees explain exactly how the tax cuts for the rich are supposed to create jobs and can the American People expect to see those jobs created before the 2012 elections?

    What I'd like to know is why Gary Johnson was excluded by CNN from this debate. He is an excellent candidate and meets your own criteria! He is a great candidate and is superior to every other one you have included. Shame on your for editing!

    The main issues we need to discuss when are we going to respect people in the white house and get down to business and clean up this mess establish by the past also Jobs, medicare working on getting our troops out of Afganistan and other countries and bring them home. Also let's focus on important issue leaving Weiner alone as much as I love the Clinton he continue to be President with what he did. I feel they are being hipocrital about Weiner let him go home and get him and his family together and leave his job alone. We need no more unemployed.

    if they want to cut taxes why don't they get a national sales tax. you can downsize government by eliminating the IRS and still get the money you need to run the government.

    Given that many candidates say they are pro-life, what change would you you propose to protect the lives of the estimated 18-20 thousand people who currently die each year from a lack of affordable health care? Please answer without discussing fault or Obama care.

    What specific acts should be done to improve race relations in America? Do you believe racism has ended in America?

    health care is my biggest concern and if the republican want to end government care are they willing to pick up health care like everyone else has,so there is no government health care like they want to save money.

    Where are the jobs they promised if we gave them a majority in the House of Reps? This is a calling to "put up or shut up"!

    Campaign finance reform. After the Citizens United ruling, I want to know if the Republican candidates believe in corporate money, or the voting rights of everyday Americans; the theory of one person, one vote is being put to the test.

    I think an in depth challenge to RomneyCare should be pressed. Why isn't the MA plan good enough for the whole Nation since it works so well, and the people in MA are so happy with it?

    I don't like any of them running. None of them have any interesting ideas or answers to fix the economy. Maybe Jon Huntsman might be a possible. Thank God Palin is not running, I feel she is a dangerous person for the country.
