Five Questions for the Debate
4:45 PM, Oct 2, 2012 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
Here are five questions as we head into the first presidential debate of 2012:
1. Will President Obama talk about Obamacare, and will he try to make his 2,700-page overhaul of the American health care system sound like a 2-page law that merely requires the coverage of 25-year-old “children” and the dispensation of “free” birth-control pills?
2. Will Obama talk about his $831,000,000,000 economic “stimulus”?
3. After submitting four budgets (see here, here, here, and here) calling for a combined $4.440 trillion in new federal deficit spending over four years (a whopping $3.050 trillion more than any other president had ever called for during a single term), will Obama account for his historic and unprecedented spending spree, or will he simply refer to his mysterious “deficit reduction plan” for the future?
4. In short, will Obama talk about anything that happened during his term in office, aside from the killing of Osama bin Laden — which relied heavily on intelligence gathered under President Bush — and the federal bailout of General Motors that Bush started?
