The government could shut down! The government could shut down! Okay, I hear you. Now, please DO IT. I can’t think of anything better. And the American people are just fine with this. For the first time ever, a Rasmussen poll finds that a majority of voters don’t mind shutting down the government if it leads to more tax cuts.
Did you hear that Republicans? Don’t let Harry Reid and Chucky Schumer scare you out of standing up for spending cuts, in the magnitude that was promised during last November. Don’t worry that the democrats they’ve planned, synchronized and aimed their fabricated name calling of “Extremist” at you. If that’s Extremist, 57% of us are extremist.
This budget, this debt, this deficit, these are what are extremist.
A majority of voters are fine with a partial shutdown of the federal government if that’s what it takes to get deeper cuts in federal government spending.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think making deeper spending cuts in the federal budget for 2011 is more important than avoiding a partial government shutdown. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree and say avoiding a shutdown is more important. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
DON’T WUSS OUT Republicans, or 2012 will make 2010 look mild, and you’ll be out of a job.
