Number of the Day


Only 37% of Americans support the "stimulus" plan currently under consideration in the U.S. Senate according to a new survey released by Rasmussen Reports. 43% of those surveyed oppose the legislation. Opposition to the plan is growing rapidly as it was at just 34% two weeks ago. Meanwhile, 45% now say they support a tax cut only plan and just 34% would oppose such a plan. President Obama initially proposed $350 billion for tax cuts in the recovery plan, but the congressional Democratic leadership lowered this to $275 billion to make way for more spending. 72% of voters oppose a stimulus plan that includes only new government spending without any tax cuts.
