Rasmussen: To Create Jobs, Voters Say Cut Taxes and Stop Spending

November 19, 2009 at 12:20 pm Matt Leave a comment Go to comments

Bill Buckley once suggested that he would rather have the US government run by the first 400 people in the Boston telephone book. And considering that 79% of voters are apparently smarter on fiscal policy than your average Democrat Congressman, I agree:

As the policy debate has unfolded in Washington this year, voters have consistently believed that tax cuts would do more than increased government spending to stimulate the economy and create jobs. Now that the nation’s unemployment rate has reached 10.2%, voters continue to hold that view.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 62% believe tax cuts are a better way to create jobs and fight unemployment. Only 21% believe that additional stimulus spending is a more effective tool. Earlier this year, as the first stimulus package was being debated in Congress, 62% of voters wanted the plan to have more tax cuts and less spending.
