Gallup: 45% Want Equal Tax Hikes and Spending Cuts

A plurality. 40% want the budget balanced with mostly/only spending cuts. 11% want it balanced with mostly/only tax hikes.

Adding the two tax-heavy groups together and you have 56%.

But the thing is, Obama talks about a "balanced approach," ad nauseam, and yet never proposes one. His actual proposal is to raise taxes by three times the size of the pittance of cuts he's proposed. And of course he wants the tax hikes now. The cuts.... eh, they can wait.

I'd sure like to see this "balanced approach" Obama talks about so much, on paper. An equal amount of tax hikes and spending cuts would in fact be a far more right wing proposal than he's actually put forward.

His actual plan is about as balanced as, say, France's Socialists are implementing.

The French economy has been stuck at zero percent growth for months, while unemployment has climbed to above 10 percent and all signs point to an oncoming recession.

Sounds like a plan. Let's do that.

I'm finding the gravitational pull of the Let It Burn caucus growing increasingly strong and increasingly irresistible.
