58% of Americans Favor Government Shutdown Over Spending at Current Levels

 

Once again President Barack Obama and Democrats are on the wrong side of the issue and against the  American people.

A recent Rasmussen polls states that 58% of registered voters favor a government shutdown rather than Barack Obama and the Democrats choice of current government spending levels. Just 33% are in favor of Congress avoid a government shutdown by authorizing spending at the same levels as last year. Democrats find them selves on the wrong side of the American people as 80% of Republicans, but most importantly 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party believe a shutdown is a better option until the two sides can agree on spending cuts.

As Republicans and Democrats in Congress haggle over the budget, most voters would rather have a partial shutdown of the federal government than keep its spending at current levels.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 33% of Likely U.S. Voters would rather have Congress avoid a government shutdown by authorizing spending at the same levels as last year. Fifty-eight percent (58%) says it’s better to have a partial shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree on what spending to cut. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

      Too bad we can’t furlough all of congress for about 15 years!

      Waiting on Steve to tell us how misleading this article is and that the pollsters didn’t ask the right questions.
