What America Thinks: 56% Want Long-Term Budget Deal That Cuts Spending

Friday, December 13, 2013

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray unveiled a proposed bipartisan budget deal this week that would fund agencies through the fall of 2015. While the proposed deal includes compromises from both sides and has been approved by the House, many conservatives and liberals are voicing opposition. Even before the deal was announced, most voters said they wanted a long-term deal that cuts government spending but don’t think they’ll get it.
