Most Americans support investing in education, infrastructure, and alternative energy, NOT cuts in spending and taxes.
“I hate the public. The public is stupid.” — Ron Swanson
I’d like to see where the liberal think tanks American Progress and Bloomberg got their numbers for this poll. Sounds like total bullshit. I’m sure if I walked down the street and asked random people which of these three options, in their humble opinion, would most likely create more jobs and fix the economy:
a) Citizens and Businesses keeping their money in the form of tax breaks and spending it how they choose in the open market.
b) Government spending citizen and business taxes for public works, investment and infrastructure.
c) I don’t know, and don’t care.
…you’d get a much larger vote for choice (c) because a good amount of people are mindless drones who don’t understand nor care about the economy. Secondly those that DO understood how money works, would easily go with choice (a).
I know several liberals and if you presented the option of spending your own money in the economy or handing it over to the government to spend for you, they’d overwhelmingly choose spending their own money themselves when put that way. However, if you put the question as “which will fix the economy: tax and spending cuts…or government investments in green energy, welfare, public unions and infrastructure” they’d immediately choose government investments because they are programmed to be subservient to the mantra of liberalism.
Margin of error is blown out the roof.
