What Most Of Us Want

Here’s a little tidbit of news from a poll by the Washington Post/Bloomberg:

More than two-thirds of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, say wealthier people should pay more in taxes to bring down the budget deficit, and even larger numbers think Medicare and Social Security benefits should be left alone.

So when John Boehner and Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann say that “the American people” don’t want the rich to pay their fair share of taxes and want to privatize Social Security and kill Medicare, they’re just talking out of their asses.

Just thought you’d like to know.
