Posted on 07/27/2010 4:25:53 PM PDT by TruthHound
While most Americans disapprove of Barack Obamas handling of the economy, far more think his administrations policies rather than those of the Bush administration would do more to improve economic conditions over the next few years. As Congress gears up for debate over the tax cuts passed when Bush was president, the public is divided, with roughly equal numbers in favor of keeping all of Bushs tax cuts, repealing only those for wealthy Americans, or scrapping them entirely.
In the latest Pew Research/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll, sponsored by SHRM, conducted July 22-25 among 1,004 adults, 46% say that following the policies of Obama administration would do more to help the economy improve in the next few years, while 29% say that following the Bush administrations policies would do more to help. Nearly one-in-five (17%) volunteer that neither administrations policies would help.

What a crock of shit.
The Bush years were booming; now, we’re in a depression.
And these fools think Obama’s policies are better for the economy? They’re stuck on stupid.
Well 10% unemployment is better than 4%. It’s bigger.
Economic fruitcakes, easy bake recipe.
How many people polled have a clue of what the Bush or Obama policies ARE ? There is no description of either in this question. So, likely, the respondents answered according to who they like better.
What a crock of shit.
Could write that in stone...
I'd have to agree with the 17%. At this point, it's like trying to turn seafood chowder back into an aquarium.
Zero's policies are doing more harm the economy than Bush's, however.
Elected government cannot work when the voters have mashed potatoes in the cavity where their brains are supposed to be.
Stupidity is a fatal epidemic in the USSA.
Who did the interview, again?
SEIU Detroit City workers?
Oakland City Council Members?
Friends of La Raza?
The Sierra Club?
1. I know there are about 5 instances since 1960 where tax cuts increased economic activity and growth.
2. Can anyone name an instance where Tax INCREASES increased economic growth?
The Left PRETENDS that the Clinton tax hikes increased the revenue. But it was a boom time and the tax hikes didn’t much get in the way.
The Contract With AMerica kept spending low and the economy grew with the extra cash not spent.
Also, the computer revolution in the 90’s made business HUGELY more efficient.
I ain't worried about my gas.
I ain't worried about my mortgage...
I thought the Republicans forced Clinton’s hand in cutting taxes during 1998’s balanced budget act.
Besides, the economy had been growing since 1990.
Well. That pretty much explains why the Marxists are doing so well in this bogus push poll.
