Americans Blame Republicans More Than Democrats For Fiscal Cliff

Americans blame Republicans in Congress more than congressional Democrats orPresident Barack Obama for the current "fiscal cliff" crisis, as the deadline approaches for action to avert big tax increases and spending cuts, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Thursday.

When asked who they believed to be more responsible for the "fiscal cliff" situation, 27 percent blamed Republicans in Congress, 16 percent blamedObama and 6 percent pointed to Democrats in Congress. The largest percentage - 31 percent - blamed "all of the above."

A similar breakdown was found in response to questions about theeconomy. Asked who was responsible for the national unemployment rate, the poll found 23 percent chose Republicans in Congress, 16 percent saidObama and 7 percent said Democrats in Congress, while 32 percent picked "all of the above."

The U.S. unemployment rate stood at 7.7 percent in November, according to Labor Department figures

Agreed to both of the above posts. Our culture has become more obsessed with reality tv and an attitude of nonchalance. One day we will wake up to find ourselves completely enslaved to our government and unable to being self reliant people.

Hard times are coming.

Read the list of complaints against the King that are in the Declaration of Independence. Look at how many are in effect AGAINST the American citizen TODAY. And those complaints were the BASIS for a revolution. But we are supposed to endure those same conditions today and just say "oh well"? As Thomas Paine said, "Time makes more converts than reason". And time is marching quickly......
