    Americans Blame Wasteful Government Spending for Deficit

    Americans Blame Wasteful Government Spending for Deficit

    Well, isn't this interesting. All you ultra-liberals out there that want to raise taxes and hurt the economic recovery, take careful note. This should help make the debt ceiling debate vigorous.

    If only those Americans would take their own advice and stop spending so much at home...

    I think we can all agree deficits and debt is bad

    101

    How to tackle those things is divided

    Everyone wants to look like the hero

    Sure maybe people think we spend too much on social programs

    BUt guess what, polls also show they don't want the government to cut them (too much?)

    LOL!

    Oh well. I'm sure things will work themselves out

    (one way or another)

    Take heart.

    By wasteful spending I assume they mean actual waste and fraud and not social spending which I would view as a waste. If that is the case, then Americans are stupid. It is military and social spending that is racking up the debt.

    Chalk it up to the failed bail out programs and every program Obama's administration has come up with. Had the money been given to Americans and not big business we would have saved millions of house from foreclosure and millions of good people would be out from under their bills ans they would have started spending some of the 10s of thousands each family would have received.

    Obama has done one thing right in two years and for that I say finally, and Osama is dead. Other than that he has been a failure. So I will go easy on him until his next foul up. That should come tomorrow.

    You sound like Cinderella's stepmother.

    To be fair, nothing he does could ever please you. Just confess and move on, kwim?

    I don't know of anyone who has said the government shouldn't cut spending.

    Also, that poll reflects blame for what caused the deficit, not what Americans believe should be done to fix it.

    Re: Americans Blame Wasteful Government Spending for Deficit

    Where did conservatives get the idea that liberals don't think spending should be cut at all?

    Straw man, anyone?

    And since when did solving this issue become one or the other?

    Yeah, right, on both accounts.

    There are plenty of people who say we shouldn't worry about spending, we need to let the Bush tax cuts expire on the wealthy.

    So over spending caused the deficit, but we should raise taxes to pay for it? Dood, get a life and then get back to me.
