Are government policies hurting the people they are intended to help?
According to a recent Rasmussen report, the majority of American believe that the fastest way to close the income gap is to take the government out of the equation.
The national telephone survey found that 69 percent of U.S. residents believe the salary gap is an issue that deserves attention, but 59 percent think that it can best be solved without the government intervening in the economy.
Responses to this question varied depending on party affiliation. Fifty-three percent of Democrats say that more government involvement will narrow the income gap, while 87 percent of Republicans believe the poor can best be served without government interference in the economy. 59 percent of unaffiliated voters say less government involvement is the better course.
