An American appetite for tax hikes gives President Barack Obama leverage in fiscal cliff negotiations.
A new POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Poll finds that 60 percent of respondents support raising taxes on households that earn more than $250,000 a year and 64 percent want to raise taxes on large corporations.

That tax just isn't high enough yet, perhaps. Paycheck send it in.
This poll says “households” making $250,000. Is that the same as a business that hires people? It may be misleading.
We can fix that problem. American patriots are no longer producing more children. All that will be left is the TAKERS, lol. Oh well!.
Parasites will become cannibals then. Cockroaches I hear do eat their own dead when there is no other food around.
It isn't that they're unaware of the effects, it's just that they don't care. 0bama WANTS the downside to the rest of the country. The worse he disrupts the economy the better he likes it. Marxists like him can do their work of converting the USA to a communist country. It isn't ignorance that drives the redistributionists, but malice.
Just do it. Yes, it will kill jobs. Ann Coulter is right. Give America what it thinks it wants.
I made the decision to be middle class a long time ago. I saw what I had to do to become rich, and I wasn’t willing to make that kind of sacrifice. The Return On Investment just wasn’t good enough for me. So, I don’t begrudge wealthy people. The only way a wealthy person hurts me is if he just sits on his money. And even that doesn’t really hurt me. He’s just not helping create jobs. Why should I care if a rich guy has twelve houses and four yachts? Somebody had to build those houses. Somebody has to crew those yachts.
You are correct. Another way to say that is the 20% do 80% of the work at any given time.
Of course MORE people wanted to cut all government spending, so why wasn’t THAT the headline?
And the questions are stupid. Of course people would rather rich people get hit with a tax. If it said “Raise taxes on someone other than me”, everybody would choose that.
If you instead asked people about which CONSEQUENCE of the fix they would rather live with, and the “tax the rich” was replaced by “cause a recession”, nobody would choose it.
Doesn’t 40% conservative match up well with 38% who think you shouldn’t raise taxes?

Well if so, this then tells me that many of the so called Independents are in reality, liberals. They just don’t like to identify themselves as such.
