The Daily Quote

“The only debt-reduction proposals to earn majority support in the [United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection] poll involved raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans—either by letting the Bush tax cuts expire or by reducing the value of itemized deductions. Fifty-three percent of voters thought letting the Bush tax cuts expire for families making more than $250,000 a year should be part of the deficit-reduction package, while 55 percent supported reducing the value of itemized deductions for families at that same income level, the poll showed.”
