Voters Agree Government Spending Hurts the Economy

The majority of voters say that increased government spending hurts the economy, according to a new poll released yesterday by Rasmussen.
Most voters (53%) believe increases in government spending hurt the economy, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

While that result is unchanged from last month, it’s up five points from 48% in January.

Just 27% now say increased government spending helps the economy, and 10% say it has no impact.
Moreover, Rasmussen also found, “Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans favor an across-the-board tax cut for all Americans to stimulate the U.S. economy.” Only 26% of adults believe President Obama has delivered on his campaign promise to cut taxes for 95% of Americans.

  1. So tell me:
    Where were you teabaggers when Bush was turning record surpluses into crushing deficits, spending like a drunken sailor, throwing billions and billions down the toilet in the illegal and unnecessary Iraq war, and doing a few bailouts of his own over the summertime? Hmm, snookums? Oh, you were quiet then, weren't you? I think you were.
    But let a Democrat take over the White House (by no small margin, I'll remind you) and NOW you rail against Big Gubmint Spending! You're a hypocrite is what you are. A hypocrite wishing to lead your crowd of useful idiots at these tea parties into opposing policies that will actually CUT taxes for most of them.
    I, for one, ain't buyin' what you're selling. Yoiu're a demagogue. Shame on you.
    Please tell me what you are planning to run for so I can donate money to your opponent.
