A new Pew Research Center poll says most Americans — including 74 percent of Republicans — believe President Barack Obama won the “fiscal cliff” face-off, but most also believe the deal is bad for them and the economy.

Fifty-two percent of independents believe the deal will mostly hurt the economy, and 55 percent believe the deal will mostly “hurt people like you,” said the January poll of 1,003 adults. Fewer than one-in-three independents thought the deal would be good for the economy or people like them, said a Jan. 10 statement from the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

Republicans overwhelmingly said the deal is bad for the economy and people like them, while a slight majority of Democrats favored the deal.
Overall, 52 percent of respondents though the deal would hurt “people like you,” and 46 percent said the economy would be damaged. Only 30 percent of respondents said they believe the deal will help them, and just 36 percent believe the deal will help the economy.

Under the last-minute deal, Obama and the Democrats used their political leverage to gain $620 billion in tax revenue from higher-income Americans over 10 years, but abandoned their vocal 12-year opposition to the low tax rates set for 98 percent of Americans by President George W. Bush in his 2001 tax-cut package.

Obama and the Democrats also ended the two-year payroll tax holiday, boosting taxes for all working-class and middle-class American workers.

GOP politicians had argued that the tax increases will slow the economy, and offered various compromises that Obama rejected.

The fiscal-cliff deal will allow the national debt to grow past $20 trillion in 2017. That debt amounts to roughly $125,000 for each working-age American.

This year the interest on our national debt was $360 billion. That is over a third of all income tax revenue.

Wouldn't it be nice if some of the Collectivists that post here could display a modicum of decency and actually address the point of a Thread?

America is flooded with so much hypocrisy, crimes, injustice, abuses, and "What the Fauch!" from the Immoral Left that it is impossible to discuss the daily abuses of the Law and the Founding Documents by the Mobsters that sit in the Halls of Power.

The Sheeple just got a huge Tax Increase......we spent 12 months listening to how the Victim Leftists "Feel" that "the Rich need to pay more".

The Rich are paying more. But so are the (gag) "Middle Class".

WHERE ARE THE SHEEPLE?

Your Messiah and his Handlers have lied to you again!

Can you Sheeple do anything more than Baahayahahahhaayahhh?

Moron,

Do you know how Mentally ill you are?

By the way, Didn't the Doctors know what a Genetic Mutant you were destined to be when they discovered that you were the monster created by the Unholy Union of your Birth Mother and her Brother that bred her?

Would you be willing to get in line for a "Retroactive Abortion" to correct the Dr's Mistake in not Aborting you before you started wasting oxygen that is better utilized by single celled creatures?

Please do not Poison my posts with your presence.
