    House Republicans are proposing to follow their repeal of the national health care bill with billions in spending cuts, and most voters continue to favor a government that offers fewer services and lower taxes.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of Likely Voters prefer a government with fewer services and lower taxes rather than a more active one with more services and higher taxes. This is virtually identical to last month and consistent with findings since September. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/publ...ary_17_18_2011
    snip
    Twenty-two percent (22%) of voters say they prefer a government with more services and higher taxes, down three points from December. Support for a more activist government over the past four years has ranged from 19% in August 2009 to 32% in late July 2007.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    And what are these nebulous "services" they are willing to do without.
    I would about bet that they aren't considering cuts in the ones they use themselves.

    From what one hears, Americans prefer a smaller government with fewer programs which only benefit others. They naturally consider the ones that benefit them to be their due. You know the kind, the ones who think that their pension and their lifetime medical benefits were earned, but that everyone else was too stupid/lazy/unpatriotic to get a job with government paycheck.

    Wrong, asshole. If you pay for a benefit, you are due it. What Americans do not want is those that are too lazy or stupid to be rewarded with benefits that they did not earn. Other than benefits for the sick and elderly, welfare payments, housing, food, SSI, WIC, etc should be eliminated.

    Speaking as a state government worker, you're not entirely wrong, but speaking for myself, I pay a lot toward my pension as well as my medical benefits($120 per month, you?). And I don't mind. But something you're obviously leaving out on purpose. People like me actually earn what we have, state pay or not. People on welfare earn not one penny. Big difference.

    So if you own a store where EBT is a significant portion of sales, and people on your staff are receiving EBT, Section 8, and medicaid benefits are you on welfare?
