Public Campaign has put together five questions for Mitt Romney and five questions for President Obama on money-in-politics for tonight’s debate.
Here are two of the questions:
- Governor Romney, you and your party have criticized President Obama for the Solyndra controversy and the “crony capitalism” you allege was behind it. How would you and a Romney administration ensure that no special treatment is given to the donors and bundlers who have raised millions of dollars for your campaign?
- President Obama, you created controversy when you criticized the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that allowed unlimited corporate and union spending in our elections during in your State of the Union address in 2010. In your 2008 election, you said you wanted no outside spending on your behalf. Now you’ve given your blessing to super PACs on the Democratic side. Have you accepted that outside spending is just a feature of American elections that can’t be addressed?
