Polls: Majorities Want Spending Cuts; Oppose Unlimited Debt Ceiling

Today in Washington, D.C. - Nov. 10, 2012
The House is in recess until tomorrow, Nov. 11 at Noon and will take up HR 4310 — Fiscal 2013 Defense Authorization. The following bills are on the House Schudlue for the remainder of the week:
Wednesday:
HR 5817 — Eliminate Privacy Notice Confusion Act
HR 6190 — Asthma Inhalers Relief Act of 2012
S 3542— DHS Audit Requirement Target (DART) Act of 2012
S 3542 — No-Hassle Flying Act of 2012

Thursday:
HR 4053 — Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Improvement Act of 2012
HR 6364 — A bill to establish a commission regarding World War I observances and a new memorial in Washington, D.C.
S 1379 — D.C. Courts and Public Defender Service Act of 2011
S 3315 — GAO Mandates Revision Act of 2012

Today, the Senate will reconvene at 2 PM.  At 5 PM, the Senate will resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S. 3637, a bill to extend the FDIC’s Transaction Account Guarantee program for two years. Following 30 minutes of debate the Senate will vote on cloture on the motion to proceed to (i.e. whether to take up) S. 3637. It is questionable what the Senate may take up the remainder of the week. Nothing identified on the schedule. Majority Harry Reid is not showing any real concern over America going over the "Fiscal Cliff."

So, Mr. Read, lets see what are the polls showing:
  • Politico / George Washington University Battleground Poll, 75% of voters want to ‘cut government spending across the board’; 59% "favor strongly cutting government spending across the board.
  • The Hill poll, 59% reject the president’s demand that Congress give up power to set the country’s borrowing limit.
  • Gallup: 25% of adults want lawmakers to stick to their principles in fiscal cliff negotiations and 62% (61% of Independents) want them to compromise and reach an agreement.
  • Economist, 49% of adults think the economy will be hurt badly if Congress and the President don’t reach a deal on the fiscal cliff. 33% say it will be hurt a little and 5% don’t think it will be hurt at all.  And, 60% say the budget deficit is a “very important” issue.
  • Quinnipiac, 47% of registered voters (51% of Independent registered voters) think going over the fiscal cliff will have a bad effect on the economy. 23% (21% of Independents) think it will have a good effect.
  • Rasmussen, 54% of likely voters think economic growth is more important than economic fairness. 37% say fairness is more important.
  • AP, 25% of adults think the economy is in good shape; 63% think it is in poor shape; and 12% think it is neither good nor poor shape.
  • Congress: Average approval for mid-September to mid-November was 16.4% per the RealClearPolitics average. Average disapproval was 76.4%.
  • Right Track/Wrong Track: RealClearPolitics average, which covered late October to early December, 41.3% think the country is headed in the right direction while 53.5% think it is headed in the wrong direction.
Most of the discussion surrounding the looming fiscal cliff has involved Democrats’ demands for tax increases, but it’s important to remember that Washington has a spending problem, not a taxing problem. And Americans recognize that government spending needs to be cut.

According to a new Politico / George Washington University Battleground Poll, “For the first time, after the fiscal cliff dominated the conversation during the month following the election, government spending and the budget deficit narrowly edged out ‘the economy’ as the most important issue to voters. Three in four voters want to ‘cut government spending across the board’. . . .” Fifty-nine percent of respondents said they “favor strongly” “cutting government spending across the board” and another 17% said they “favor somewhat” that position.

Given voters’ concerns about spending and the deficit, then, it comes as little surprise that a new poll from The Hill finds “[s]trong majorities . . . oppose proposals that have been part of early talks — particularly Obama’s request for unilateral authority to raise the debt ceiling. According to the poll, 59 percent reject the president’s demand that Congress give up power to set the country’s borrowing limit.”

As Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said last week, “[W]hy on earth would we even consider giving a President who’s brought us four years of trillion dollar deficits unchecked authority to borrow – he’s the last person who should have limitless borrowing power. Look: the only way we ever cut spending around here is by using the debate over the debt limit to do it. Now the President wants to remove that spur to cut altogether. It gets in the way of his spending plans. I assure you: it’s not going to happen. The American people want Washington to get spending under control. And the debt limit is the best tool we have to make the President take that demand seriously. The American people want us to fight to cut spending. It’s a fight they deserve. We’re happy to have it.”
