Polls also show that a VAST majority of people did NOT want Obama care either but the representatives of those same people rammed it thru anyway.Ahhhh, the GOP.
Just lost an election in which the main issue was whether to raise taxes on people making more than $250K. Polls show a majority of Americans think we should do so. Polls also show that if a fiscal cliff deal isn't reached, most people will blame the GOP.
So what does the GOP do? Refuses to extend tax cuts on 98% of Americans in order to resist doing what Americans have clearly stated they want them to do. Brilliant.
I won't even get into the clearly class warfare angle or how little effective $'s will come from the 'top 2%' that already pay the bulk of ALL taxes but the Dems/Progressives want to deprive them of even more.
