Rasmussen: Voters Support Obama’s Plan To Raise Taxes On High Income Earners
It’s not at all surprising that a poll would show the public broadly supporting the idea of raising takes on high income earners. After all, we saw those same kind of results before the 2010 debate about extending the Bush Tax Cuts, and again just recently. What I suppose is surprising is that we’d see this kind of poll result from Rasmussen:
Most voters favor temporarily extending the so-called Bush tax cuts for those who earn less than $250,000 a year but are less enthusiastic about continuing those tax cuts permanently for all Americans.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with President Obama’s plan to extend the tax cuts for a year for those who make less than $250,000 annually. Just 20% oppose this temporary extension, and 13% are undecided
