Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose Son of Stimulus

Voters apparently have learned their lesson following the failure of President Obama’s original stimulus package. Scott Rasmussen finds that only 22% of Americans favor the latest piece of Stimulus II, which would send $35 billion to state and local governments to support their payrolls. (64% say those governments should cut spending instead.) Such budgetary assistance was the main thrust of the original stimulus bill. At this point, there evidently are not many private sector workers who believe that the public sector should be bailed out and made immune from the hard times that everyone else is experiencing.
