    •81% of respondents say the national debt is a major problem that must be addressed now.
    •86% of respondents agree reducing the deficit would help the economy.
    •87% of respondents believe that to solve the long-term debt problem, Republicans will have to agree to some tax increases and Democrats will have to agree to some spending cuts..
    •53% of respondents would be more likely to support a candidate for Congress if they knew that the candidate supported a bipartisan agreement that included both spending cuts and tax increases.
    •76% of middle class voters believe that the middle class should contribute to the solution.

    Wow.. some people want other people to have to pay for things and services while they pay nothing themselves...

    you want tax increases... bring every last citizen up to the same highest tax % paid by the top earners.... funny thing is.. I bet at that point, you would have more people screaming for tax cuts and a decrease in government spending.... a lot different when YOU actually have a stake in the game, not playing with someone else's ante

    Um... that is Austerity. You are saying the people want to cut spending and increase taxes. That's the exact same austerity programs European nations are pursuing.

    Conservatives, however, want to cut spending and cut taxes. We want Americans to work less for the government and more for themselves. We believe that people can make better choices about their wants and needs than the government can.

    When you cut spending and cut taxes, economic growth explodes. When we followed this policy it was the one time in our recorded history that we had 2% unemployment.

    Fucking lying twatsicle

    76% of middle class voters believe that the middle class should contribute to the solution.

    Not exactly what you asserted.... as the middle class already contributes to the 'solution' thru federal income taxes.. unlike the ~47% beneath them
