Rasmussen: 66% Say America Is Overtaxed

Rasmussen Reports, 66% Say America Is Overtaxed:

Sixty-six percent (66%) believe that America is overtaxed. Only 25% disagree.

Lower income voters are more likely than others to believe the nation is overtaxed.

Not surprisingly, the tax issue provokes a wide gap between the Political Class and Mainstream Americans. 81% of Mainstream American voters believe the nation is overtaxed, while 74% of those in the Political Class disagree.

81% of Republicans believe the nation is overtaxed. So do 73% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Democrats are evenly divided on the question. ...

[O]nly eight percent (8%) believe their taxes will be cut during the Obama presidency, while 46% expect a tax hike..

Being a city mayor and then governor of the nation's largest and key energy state gives one more executive experience than being a community organizer, with a smaller number of members than a hick town.

But, I will say that Obama has been getting some subsequent on-the-job training, despite starting behind Gov. Palin. It's just too bad that a President couldn't have gotten experience before he took command of our nation.

So actually being President of the United States for 15 months is less experience than being mayor of Sinkhole, Alaska and part-time governor of a state with less people than the average congressional district?

Well, Palin has more executive experience than our current President/Community Organizer.

How many of those "lower-income voters" are among the 50 some-odd percent who owed no income taxes last year? And note that 65 percent think the middle class pays a bigger share of their income than richer folks. What a pack of ignorant crybabies. I hope Palin wins the presidency in 2012. It's what we deserve.
