What Part of “Taxed Enough” Don’t Republicans Understand?
From John Voorhees at Slate.com: “The congressional super committee has one week left to hammer out a deal that would provide $1.2 trillion in savings over the next decade. Think they can do it? If your answer is ‘No,’ you’re not alone. A new poll out Wednesday shows that the vast majority of Americans would bet against the bipartisan panel. The CNN/ORC International survey shows that 78 percent of those polled say that it is somewhat or very unlikely that the panel will develop a plan to significantly reduce the federal budget deficit by the Nov. 23 deadline. Furthermore –” dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut “– Americans are more likely to lay the blame for such a failure with congressional Republicans (42 percent) than they are with Democratic lawmakers (32 percent).”
More Americans would blame the Republicans if the super committee fails. It’s just another reason why the Democrats don’t want a super committee deal. It’s not the main reason. The main reason is there was never supposed to be a deal. Obama’s campaign is based on a do-nothing Congress.
