According to CBS, 74% of people support higher taxes on those making $250k a year or more.
Almost three-quarters of Americans think it is a good idea to raise taxes on people making more than $250,000 per year, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.
In fact, two-thirds of Americans think the tax code should be changed so that middle-class Americans pay less than they do now, while “upper income” people pay more.
That’s a shocker, people think their taxes should be reduced, while those who are “more fortunate” should pay more. Interesting, it doesn’t appear there was any question phrased in a way that everyone’s taxes should be reduced and we should stop taking money by force and giving it to other people, although there were some questions on approval of the President’s budget. The poll was split almost in thirds thinking spending was going to help, spending was going to hurt, and having no idea.
In other news, the wolves ate the sheep for dinner.
