What I'd like to know is just what is going on in the NON thinking brains of that 36% who thinks that spending and more spending and still more spending is A-OK.

We've all heard President Obama talk about "investments" in education, clean energy and crumbling roads and bridges, but those investments are simply more spending. According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans favor spending cuts over more spending in Washington.
