    snippet:

    A majority of Americans want the Bush tax cuts extended for everyone, despite a strong push by President Barack Obama to eliminate them on higher incomes, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

    The poll found 52 percent of registered voters saying they want all the tax cuts extended, including the tax cuts for incomes above $250,000, while 43 percent want the cuts extended just for incomes below that threshhold.
    .
    .
    Yet some of the strongest support for extending all of the tax cuts came from some of Obama’s most reliable supporters, such as young voters, minorities and the poor and working class.

    Young voters ages 18-29 favored tax cuts for everyone by a margin of 69-29, the largest margin of any age group.

    Latinos favored tax cuts for all incomes by 62 percent to 36 percent. Whites supported tax cuts for every income by 50 percent to 44 percent. African-Americans split, 48 percent for limiting the tax cuts to incomes below $250,000 and 47 percent for extending them to all incomes.

    And those making less than $50,000 supported tax cuts for all incomes by 53 percent to 41 percent.

    “For all three groups, there’s a fairly large gap in their support for Obama and how they’re reacting to the tax proposal,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion at Marist College, which conducted the poll. “It may call attention to how connected they are to the proposal itself.”

    " This survey of 1,010 adults was conducted July 9 -11. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in the continental United States were interviewed by telephone. Telephone numbers were selected based upon a list of telephone exchanges from throughout the nation. The exchanges were selected to ensure that each region was represented in proportion to its population. To increase coverage, this landline sample was supplemented by respondents reached through random dialing of cellphone numbers. The two samples were then combined. Results are statistically significant within plus or minus 3.0 percentage points. There are 849 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The error margin increases for cross-tabulations. "

    Obama is out of touch. His hardcore left turn on businesses and taxes conflicts with most Americans beliefs.

    Maybe we could get out of all these worthless wars? No more war in the middle east and no more aid for AFRICA. Next Obama could reform (when pigs fly) welfare to NOT include illegals anymore.

    I believe it is time to tell the bankers and globalist to go fuck themselves. NO MORE TRILLIONS for YOU PIGS. This way we won't have to raise taxes on the people.

    I'd rather see them expire for everyone than extended for everyone.

    Got any sound economic idea of what will happen to the economy if that occurs? You'd think that the businesses would raise the price of their good on the demander to make the same "profit" as pre tax. :eusa_shifty:
