Gallup Poll: 47% – 17% in Favor of Lowering Debt Ceiling … As Obama Drags His Feet


Politicians in Washington, DC better wake up when it comes to “We the People” and the debt ceiling or face the consequences in 2012.

According to a recent Gallup poll, 47% are against raising the debt ceiling, while only 17% are in favor. 70% of Republicans, 46% of Independents and only 26% of Democrats are against raising the debt ceiling. The national debt (see debt clock) is $14, 280,910,300,000 and counting.Is it possible that elected officials can actually cut spending? Is it possible that we can have a serious plan put in place to reduce the deficit? Why is it that families across America have had to reduce their living standard, reduce spending and do without, yet Washington, DC just keeps raising the debt limit without concern. It’s time for real change!

To those GOP’ers who wish to raise the debt limit, you best take a good look at the Republican and Indy polling above.
