    I want compromise too.... huge spending cuts and tax increases...

    But... mainly income tax increases on those who currently pay no federal income tax

    Americans were decisively against (at least) the bailouts, fake stimulus packages and Obuttheadcare....Why would politicians suddenly start giving a hoot what Americans want now?

    How can 6 in 10 favor cutting federal spending when they don't know what will be cut by the obama plan?

    Just in case ANY of you are naive enough to think that the wrangling currently going on in Washington surrounding the debt ceiling has ANYTHING to do with what is best for America, you need to wake up. This is nothing more than political grandstanding by the GOP in an attempt to look good to the Tea Party. The point you need to glean from this article is what Independents want. Remember, Independents decide elections. Everyone from Obama, to Boehner to Cantor are in complete campaign mode now.

    4 Trillion over 10 years is nothing (250 Billion a year). Besides, budgets are submitted yearly so there's no guarantee that it won't be changed next year, or next election.

    How can people agree to something that is not even there? Obama has no written proposal. Republicans have a written proposal passed but it has nothing to do with 2.5 trillion in cuts. You can get polls to say what you want when you ask things a certain way.
