Gallup Poll Finds Americans Favor Tax Increases On The Wealthy


How can conservatives continue to say the will of the people should be rejected so the wealthy can continually escape paying their fair share in taxes?  How can conservatives say only the middle class and poor should feel cuts in government services, and the wealthy continually escape without assisting in paying their fair share for the nation’s fiscal problems?

Americans generally favor raising taxes on higher-income Americans and eliminating tax deductions for some corporations as ways of paying for President Obama’s proposed jobs plan.

Please tell me whether you favor or oppose each of the following proposals President Obama has made to pay for the cost of the jobs bill. September 2011

Slightly more than half of rank-and-file Republicans and Republican-leaning independents favor the idea of eliminating certain corporate tax deductions as a way to pay for a jobs creation bill. Forty-one percent of Republicans favor raising taxes on higher-income Americans. Democrats strongly favor both proposals for paying for the cost of the jobs bill.

    As you know regarding polls about gay marriage, polls are often worthless. Could anyone be shocked that people want those with more to pay for their free ride? What the poll shows is that most people lack moral discipline. Democrats are just more open about their selfish motives.

  2. Ferrell,

    Yes.

    I have a long record on tax fairness and progressive taxation. I have long argued for the rich to pay their share, corporations to pay thier share, and have chided Obama for not acting sooner and with more spine to remove the Bush tax cuts. My blog is proof of where I stand, and have stood on these matters regardless of who is in the White House.
