‘There’s Not A Single Spending Cut That Republican Voters Support’

The Last Of The Millenniums

This is why President Obama needs to hold out and have Speaker Boehner say what he will cut.

‘The “compromise” in the fiscal cliff deal from Democrats is supposed to come in the form of spending cuts. But a new Marist-McClatchy poll shows that voters — including Republicans — oppose any and every specific spending cut proposed to them’.

‘A look at what Republicans oppose’:

‘By 47-37, letting the Obama payroll tax cut expire’.

‘By 68-26, cutting spending for Medicare’.

‘By 61-33, cutting spending for Medicaid’.

‘By 66-28, eliminating the tax deduction for home mortgage interest’.

‘By 72-25, eliminating the charitable tax deduction’.

‘By 56-44, raising the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67’.

‘Republicans don’t favor much in any potential deal — they also, of course, are opposed to allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire on any income bracket’.
