New poll shows majority of Americans oppose spending cuts as only approach to deficit reduction

A new national poll by Hart Research shows that voters reject, by 54% to 38%, a cuts-only approach to deficit reduction. According to the poll, 80% of respondents disapprove of cutting Medicaid, with 63% strongly opposed.   Sixty-five percent of respondents oppose cutting Social Security through reductions to the annual Social Security cost of living adjustment (known as the “chained CPI”). The survey also found that two-thirds of respondents say that the richest 2% and large corporations should pay more in taxes.  Learn more at Americans for Tax Fairness.
