2nd Presidential Debate Has People on Delmarva Asking Questions

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Voters watching Tuesday's presidential debate were able to hear the candidates talk about the issues most important to them. Here on Delmarva, the economy and health care were top priorities for voters before the debate.

Valerie Thompson owns Bell, Book and Candle in Dover and she wants to know what President Barack Obama will do in the next four years for small businesses.

"I look forward to growing my business over the next four years and I want to know how he's going to do that," she said. "Help me out."

Walter Gordon said he wants Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to be more specific about his plans for the country.

"Can he give me something other than I got a plan, but tell me about the plan, give me a design," he said. "People like to see things, that they can get an idea of, instead of, 'I got a plan, I got a plan.'"

Physician Roberto Scaffidi said he is concerned about Obama's health care plan.  He would like to ask the president how Medicare reimbursement will affect his livelihood.

"We're being asked to do more and more to get paid less and less and I'm wondering how they can justify doing that without having a real basis upon to reduce the medicare reimbursements that they've been doing over the last few years," Scaffidi said.

Jacob Golden is focused on health care too. He wants to know more about Romney's stance on women's rights.

"That affects people my age, especially with birth control," he said. "What's his stance and what is he going to do to make it better for people who maybe don't have medical care."
