Turns out the public isn’t thrilled at the thought of more government “help” for the economy. According to Rasmussen Reports:
Enough is already more than enough when it comes to the economy, according to most U.S. voters.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 53% of voters worry that the federal government will do too much when it comes to reacting to the nation’s financial problems. This marks a five-point increase from last month and is seven points higher than the week after President Obama took office.
But 37% of voters now worry that the federal government will not do enough in dealing with the current economic situation. Forty-two percent (42%) felt that way in late January.
People are right to be fearful. We already have a $12 trillion national debt, are expected to run up at least another $10 trillion in red ink over the next decade, and face $107 trillion in unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare. That doesn’t count the trillions that health care “reform” will cost us if it passes.
All we need are more bail-outs and “stimulus” bills. Please, spare us more of Uncle Sam’s “help”!
