Majority of Americans Favor Big, Balanced Deficit Reduction Plan

With only two weeks until the Joint Select Committee’s deadline, Democrats are still pushing for a big, bold, and balanced plan - and today we’ve got a poll that shows the majority of Americans agree with that approach.

According to the United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection poll, the majority of Americans prefer Democrats’ proposal, which calls for $4 trillion in deficit reduction in a balanced way, through both spending cuts and ensuring the wealthy pay their fair share.

It’s time for Republicans to listen to the American people and work with us on a balanced plan so we can reduce the deficit, create jobs, build confidence in our economy, and avoid a damaging sequester.
