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.
President Obama in his State of the Union address Tuesday night called for new government spending on infrastructure, clean energy and education. While pluralities of voters believe those proposals would help the economy, most think spending cuts would help the economy more. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters think cutting government spending would do more to help the economy than increasing government spending on infrastructure, clean energy and education projects. Thirty-six percent (36%) believe increased spending in those areas would help the economy more.
