The fiscal cliff deal reached yesterday with $41 in tax hikes for every $1 in spending cuts is far from what the majority of Americans looking for a balanced approach wanted according to a new Rasmussen Report.
Despite the last-minute “fiscal cliff” dramatics in Washington, D.C., voters aren’t surprised by the outcome. A month ago, most voters said significant spending cuts were unlikely. Voters at that time were looking for a deal to reduce the budget deficit that included more spending cuts than tax hikes, but they expected the finished deal to emphasize tax increases instead.
