Taxpayers to Washington: Live within your income

Three in four registered voters in America, including a whopping 65 percent of the self-identified Democrats, whose party controls the White House and U.S. Senate, say Washington “immediately” should stop spending more than it takes in.

The results are from a new poll from the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies. It was conducted Dec. 5-7 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.26 percentage points.

In answer to the question, “Do you agree or disagree that government be forced to immediately operate within its means – that is, to immediately stop spending more money than it collects in tax revenue?” 55.7 percent of the respondent registered voters strongly agreed and another 20.1 percent were in the “somewhat agree” category.
