Rasmussen: 57% Okay With Government Shutdown If It Leads to Deeper Budget Cuts
"A majority of voters are fine with a partial shutdown of the federal government if that’s what it takes to get deeper cuts in federal government spending.
"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think making deeper spending cuts in the federal budget for 2011 is more important than avoiding a partial government shutdown. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree and say avoiding a shutdown is more important. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure."
Rasmussen has a GOP bias, but still. Over half of US voters don't understand demand and think that cutting spending will result in more jobs? Wow. MMT has it's work cut out for it.
Dennis Kelleher (Mr. Blue of The Rebel Capitalist) calls for a national debate on the deficit and debt, and he gives a good short summary of the MMT position.
