Americans Oppose Democrats On Tax Cuts


A majority of Americans want the Bush tax cuts extended across all income levels and all ethnicity groups, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll. The American people are in stark contrast to how the Democrats are trying to extend the Bush tax cuts by only providing them for those making under $250,000.

According to the poll,

The poll found 52 percent of registered voters saying they want all the tax cuts extended, including the tax cuts for incomes above $250,000, while 43 percent want the cuts extended just for incomes below that threshhold.

But that isn't all. Some of the greatest support came from young voters, minorities, and the poor and working class.

Young voters ages 18-29 favored tax cuts for everyone by a margin of 69-29, the largest margin of any age group.

Latinos favored tax cuts for all incomes by 62 percent to 36 percent. Whites supported tax cuts for every income by 50 percent to 44 percent. African-Americans split, 48 percent for limiting the tax cuts to incomes below $250,000 and 47 percent for extending them to all incomes.

And those making less than $50,000 supported tax cuts for all incomes by 53 percent to 41 percent.

Think about that. A majority of those that make less than $50,000 supported tax cuts for all incomes.

Remember it's Republicans who are trying to make sure the tax cuts extend to everyone regardless of how much they make. It is the Democrats that are threatening the nuclear option, or Taxmageddon as it is referred to, which will blast every American by letting nearly $600 billion worth of tax hikes and spending cuts take effect January first, unless the Republicans go along with their plan to play class warfare when it comes to taxes.
