Are you among the majority of Americans who favor the tax deal?
Why or why not?
So far this week, we’ve considered what Teddy Roosevelt, Warren Buffett, Woodrow Wilson, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Will Rogers would do about taxing the rich. Today, it’s your turn. Do you agree with the majority of Americans who support the tax deal that roared through the Senate?
In a nutshell, the tax deal extends the Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans, lowers taxes on big inheritances, extends unemployment benefits for one year, and temporarily reduces payroll taxes. Sixty percent of Americans support this package, according to a new NBC/WSJ Poll. In a strange celestial alignment, Americans across the political spectrum tend to support it. The majorities of Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, independents and moderates approve the measure, says the national poll.
However—support may have fallen in the last week, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey. In another alignment of the stars, this survey says that support is declining across the political spectrum, with more Republicans, Democrats, and unaffiliated voters expressing reservations. How about you?
What’s the pulse of the OurValues.org community?
Are you for or against the tax-deal package?
Have your reservations been growing—or declining—as Tax Wars rage?
