Huge majority favors tax cut over government spending

By a roughly six-to-one margin, Americans favor cutting taxes, as opposed to increasing government spending, as a way to create jobs. The latest Rasumssen poll shows that "59% of voters nationwide believe cutting taxes is better than increasing government spending as a job-creation tool."

Remarkably, only 15 percent think that increased government spending is the path to job creation. As remarkable, 72 percent think that Congress will go ahead anyway and increase spending.

So, you thought that the American public had turned against ObamaCare? It's nothing compared to the public's opposition to increase spending.
