Skip to comments.55% Oppose Tax Hike In Debt Ceiling Deal (So much for Hussein's 80%)
Posted on 07/16/2011 11:29:47 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat
As the Beltway politicians try to figure out how they will raise the debt ceiling and for how long, most voters oppose including tax hikes in the deal.
Just 34% think a tax hike should be included in any legislation to raise the debt ceiling...55% disagree and say it should not.
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike...82% of Republicans do not. Among [Independents], 35% favor a tax hike and 51% are opposed.

Now this, if accurate, is amazing. 42% of Democrats are OPPOSED to a tax hike?
Hussein is pissing off his own party.
Gasp! You mean that the president lied? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! </sarc>
He doesn’t “lie” — he merely makes up his own information as convenient.
It’s the post-modern multi-cultural Obamanation approach to governance....
You mean ,That African Mugabe JR LIED to the Whites!!!
And 49% of the people, who pay NO taxes, are probably in favor of a tax hike. When does the tax war start?
[ Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike... ]
BUT 42% of democrats did not join the republicans.. for spending cuts..
They had rather ignore the whole situation..
UNLESS the whole sampling is a hoax.. or flawed..
Home boy wasn’t so worried about polls during the healthcare reaming.
So... what's stopping them from mailing a check to Timmy "Hermey the Elf" Geithner right now ??
Weather it’s world leaders, dumb-o-crats, American voter or his own party consultations the bottom line is that it MUST ALWAYS BE ABOUT HIM AND WHATEVER HE WANTS, AND THOSE YOU ARE NOT ON BOARD GO UNDER THE BUS.
Why anyone even listens to mac,the crybaby liar, daddy is beyond me, each and every one he utters is just another lie.
They want a tax hike on you, so their EITC can increase again.
Yep, one more lie to add to the list. I hope the GOP starts making campaign spots of all his lies and plays them lomg and loud.
What poll was Obama citing, if any? And how was the question phrased? Possibly “Would you rather have tax hikes or have to support Grandma and Grandpa for the rest of their lives?”
Government spending has exploded under nObama.
Government revenue has imploded under nObama due to the crushing impact of his policies on business.
For 2011 the deficit is 258% higher than the deficit in 2008, and the deficit ALONE is larger than BOTH CORPORATE AND INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX COLLECTED IN 2008 !!! IS THAT INSANE OR WHAT ?
And the details are here:

BamBam made a huge mistake on Friday with this asinine assertion - call all congressional offices on Monday - especially RATS - and raise Hell.
Senate and House. Local and DC offices. Make them feel the heat.
I saw where Obama got his 80% figure from, I believe it was a Gallop poll that asked if you believed that the deficit should be handled entirely with spending cuts, no “increases of revenue” at all and about 20% of respondents said yes to that. Then the next answer was almost entirely with spending cuts but with some new revenue, next evenly split between the two, then mostly with tax increases and finally with no cuts and all tax increases.
Obama took all the rest that didn’t answer with no taxes and bunched them together to get his “80% of Americans favor raising taxes” quote he used.
There is no such thing as people who do not pay taxes.
Re: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Democrats want a tax hike—
58% of Rats don’t pay income tax.
