1* Which is more to blame for the size of the federal
budget deficit — taxpayers’ unwillingness to pay more in taxes or politicians’
unwillingness to reduce government spending?
2* Would you rather have Congress avoid a partial
government shutdown by authorizing government spending at a higher level, or
would you prefer a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans
can agree to either cut spending or keep it at its current level?
3* How likely is it that delay in passing a debt-ceiling
increase will lead to the United States defaulting on its debt payments?
