A new Rasmussen poll supplies a very interesting data point in the ongoing debate about the budget deficit: As it turns out, Republican voters would prefer having a deficit if it meant they can get more tax cuts, instead of raising taxes in order to balance the budget.
The national poll of likely voters asked: "Would you rather see a balanced budget with higher taxes or a budget deficit with tax cuts?" A 41% plurality would rather have budget deficit with tax cuts, with 36% calling for higher taxes and a balanced budget. The internals of the poll show Republicans favoring deficits and tax cuts.
Hey, I'd rather not pay for shit. Is that cool? Will that work on a personal level? I mean, can I just buy shit and not pay for it? I'd like to do that. I'm a selfish asshole who has the mentality of a 5-year-old. Gimme my stuff for free!!!!
These are the same people who complained about the D.C. subway system being slow when they went there to protest.
Fuck me. We are screwed.
