GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY:

Poll: Stimulus debate grows polarized (ANDY BARR, 2/10/09, Politico)

Fifty-one percent of 1,303 adults polled from Feb. 4-8 said they thought the stimulus was a good idea, compared with 57 percent in early January. The percentage drop in support for the package was doubled by the increase in those who think the legislation is a bad idea, up from 22 percent to 34 percent. [...]

While Republican opponents of the measure may not have a majority of Americans on their side, the poll showed that the GOP is winning one of its central arguments against the White House: the idea that tax cuts provide better stimulus than spending.

Forty-eight percent of all respondents said tax cuts for individuals and businesses would be more effective than federal spending on programs and infrastructure compared to 39 percent who said spending would be more effective.
