Sorry Occupy, the majority of Americans believe capitalism and a free market made this country great, not the government, despite President Obama recently crediting the government with American success. Obama cited a series of government "investments."
Obama said that Republicans have "one message and that is, we're going to make sure that we cut people's taxes even more -- so that by every objective measure our deficit is worse and we will slash government investments that have made this country great," he argued, "not because it's going to balance the budget, but because it's driven by our ideological vision about how government should be. That's their agenda, pure and simple."
But it turns out, he isn't on the same page with most people living in the United States.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that government investments made America great. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree, but a sizable 32% are not sure.
