But Obama's plan to hide behind the commission's recommendation is already running into a huge obstacle as the latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 69 percent of the respondents oppose raising taxes to close the federal deficit, which is projected to reach $1.6 trillion this year.The commission is not about fiscal responsibility and the only "reform" we are likely to see is tax increases.
But not only are nearly three-fourths of them opposed to tax hikes, Rasmussen reports that "most voters think President Obama’s new bipartisan deficit reduction commission is more likely to recommend tax increases than spending cuts to meet the growing deficit, and 78% expect Congress to raise taxes if the commission recommends it."
It doesn't take a commission of so-called experts to reduce the deficit, it takes the same common sense that everyone else in America has to exhibit, that is spend less than you bring in. It works for people and businesses, it will work for the government too.
