There were 142,688 questions submitted by users and 1.3 million+ votes on which questions should be asked. Those questions were then presented to the President and this is the video response.
Below is a sample of some of the questions asked, not necessarily in the video but it will give an idea of what is on folks minds at the moment.
Mr. President. Recently you called on the American public to invent 'stuff'. My question to you is, who do you intend to manufacture the ideas we create? Americans? Or the Chinese?

Over 70% of agricultural food subsidies are for meat and dairy, while fruits and veg get 0.37% and legumes and nuts have 1.7%. Will you change subsidies for better health, lower health care costs, water conservation & lower greenhouse gas emissions?
Good questions. Check out the video. And for those on the other side of the political fence there will be a future Q&A with U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner.
