69% Oppose Higher Taxes To Lower Deficit

US Citizens are absolutely sick and tired of Congress' incompetence and arrogance. US Taxpayers will NOT fall on their family budget swords, so to speak, for the sake of a Congress that has shown all the financial management ability of the three stooges.

Only 18% of Americans are willing to pay higher taxes to lower the federal budget deficit, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Sixty-nine percent (69%) are not willing to have their taxes raised to deal with deficits that are projected to rise to historic levels over the next decade. Thirteen percent (13%) more are not sure.

But most voters think President Obama’s new bipartisan deficit reduction commission is more likely to recommend tax increases than spending cuts to meet the growing deficit, and 78% expect Congress to raise taxes if the commission recommends it.
