A Question For Sunday's (and Tuesday's) CNN/WMUR/Union Leader Presidential Debate In NH

The Politico's Ben Smith asks "What should each candidate be asked" at Sunday's debate.

This is the question we would like to see -

"Candidate X - David Walker, the Comptroller General of the United States, has totaled up our government's income, liabilities and future obligations and concluded that the numbers do not add up.

Walker claims that this "dirty little secret everyone in Washington knows about" will bankrupt our country, which he claims is the #1 national security problem facing America right now.

Walker believes that meaningful entitlement reform, specifically health care reform, is the only way to salvage our nation's finances.

Two part question. First, do you agree with David Walker's assessment?

And, if you do agree, do you believe, as David Walker does, that any meaningful health care reform includes raising taxes, cutting benefits or both?"
