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.)
