On second thought, a small, inexpensive government does sound enticing

According to Rasmussen Reports:
Seventy percent (70%) of likely voters now favor a government that offers fewer services and imposes lower taxes over one that provides more services with higher taxes, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

That’s up five points over the past month and is the highest level measured in nearly three years.

Just 19% would prefer a government that provides more services in exchange for higher taxes, down five points from July and the lowest level in over two years. This marks the first time the percentage of voters who prefer this type of government has fallen below 20%.
Shockingly, even 48% of Democrats agree with the small-is-better meme. Additionally, "Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters worry more that the federal government will try to do too much to fix the economy rather than not enough. That’s up three points from a month ago and the highest level of concern found on this question since Obama was elected president."

Isn't it funny how this shift in public opinion took place after one not-so-honest-about-it big-government administration was replaced by an overtly big-government administration, substituting policies that bankrupt our children with policies that essentially impoverish our grandkids?

Odd, that.

Wow! I guess that Senators Pamela Gorman and Ron Gould are actually WITH the people in pushing for more spending cuts and opposing higher taxes. And, I guess that would mean that Governor Brewer and Randy Pullen and Bob Burns are pushing against what the people want. Great piece. Thanks for posting it!
