What do you think?

This morning, both the White House and the Congressional Budget Office offered revised federal budget projections showing higher deficits than anticipated earlier this year. Voters say cutting the deficit should be the President’s most important priority. Health care reform ranks a distant second. At the same time, voters overwhelmingly say deficit reduction is the least likely of the President’s priorities to be achieved. Seventy-one percent (71%) of voters believe President Obama’s policies have driven up the deficit.

  • Of course its the least likely, everything he does he blows money. Good lord he signed a bill for BILLIONS of dollars to be spent and didnt even read the thing to see where the money was going. I agree getting us out of this hole should be a priority but he is all about spending MORE money we dont have on things that we dont need and wont work.

    Wow, that's enlightening. I guess the American voters are figuring out what stimulus really means.

  • He's not going to have the deficit cut in half by the time his term is up. Matter of fact, it'll probably be worse, because all he's done since he's been in office is, spend, spend, spend. He's digging us in a deeper hole. What a shame!
