Holy Disconnect Batman!!

Holy Disconnect Batman, how can our elected officials be so far off base from what the American people want?

What Americans are thinking: McClatchy Poll Finds Support For Cutting Deficit… “Americans by a large margin want their federal government to focus more on cutting debt than on increasing spending even temporarily to boost the economy, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.  Given a choice, 59 percent of Americans prefer reducing debt even if that slows the economic recovery, while 33 percent prefer new government efforts to stimulate the economy even if it means more federal spending.” 

What Senate Dems are thinking: McConnell:  Democrats Want “Second Stimulus.”  Fox News’ Special Report (7/5, lead story, Baier) showed Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell saying of Obama and Democrats yesterday, “They want a second stimulus, more deficit spending. In the middle of a jobs crisis they want to raise taxes that we know will kill even more jobs when even the President has said that raising taxes will leave job creators with less ability to hire.” 

All I can say is WOW, that is some disconnect between the American people and their elected ‘representatives.’
