55% of Americans Oppose Debt Limit Tax Hikes
All too often, President Obama seems to govern by poll-tested sound bites (corporate jets?) instead of sound policy. However, when those polls disagree with his big-government philosophy, he ignores them (Obamacare?).
A new Rasmussen poll finds that 55% of Americans do not want tax hikes to be included in any debt ceiling increase. Only 34% think they should be included.
This does not bode well for the President. Even 42% of his own party don’t want a tax hike (58% do), and 82% of Republicans certainly do not want taxes raised. 51% of unaffiliated voters oppose a tax hike.
Apparently the American people do pay attention, Mr. President. They realize you cannot solve an over-spending problem with tax increases.
