    Cool CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan

    CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    The poll finds that 53 percent of Americans want the Bush-era tax cuts extended only for households earning less than $250,000 per year. That roughly matches the proposal put forth by the White House, which wants to extend the cuts only for incomes less than $250,000 for families and $200,000 for individuals.

    Well, let's see....since 49% of Americans pay no income tax at all, sounds like we could be talking about a rousing mandate of 4%.

    Those who refuse to work want those who do work to sustain all their needs, just like a lamb sustains the wolf.

    Really? Reading further...

    Just 26 percent of Americans say they support extending the cuts for all Americans, even those earning above the $250,000 level, which is the GOP proposal.

    Yeah! If you don't pay a specific type of tax, you don't DESERVE an opinion on things! Plus, EVERY person who pays no income tax is definitely a class-envy liberal who just wants to steal money from the rich. There are definitely no poor people who vote Republican.

    I saw a t-shirt design that said something like, "Laws that rob Peter to pay Paul will always have Paul's support."

    Margin of error + or - 4%.

    That could put it down to 49% instead of 53%.... and bring the 46% up to 50%.

    I'd say that makes it pretty much dead even. Hardly a mandate or anything against the cuts staying for those making over $250,000.00

    As Paul Harvey would have said here's the rest of the story:
    Just 26 percent of Americans say they support extending the cuts for all Americans, even those earning above the $250,000 level, which is the GOP proposal.

    They can suck on my junk. I'm sure the majority would like to take all sorts of things from all sorts of individuals, doesn't make it right, or even smart.

    What a nice and concise summation of the GOP's official 2010 platform!
