We're kicking off a new series today, "Issues Monday." Between now and November, we will invite top advisers from both of the major party presidential campaigns to come on and take your questions. Looking over the blog posts from recent weeks, the biggest issue on people's minds right now is the economy. Gas prices hit a new high, stocks came awfully close to bear market territory last week, housing continues to slump... Voters want to know what the candidates can do to help them, specifically. We hear enough spin during the course of a campaign, today we hope to get real substance on both sides. And you can help out by telling us what economic issue is the most important to you? Give a little detail on why, and how that issues affects you.

We no longer support commenting on NPR.org stories, but you can find us every day on Facebook, Twitter, email, and many other platforms. Learn more or contact us.
