Amid all the polls on whether Americans support taxing someone else (Surprise! They do!), I must have missed the polls asking whether Americans would support cutting specific REDUNDANT programs.Case in point: "According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey released late Wednesday, three-quarters of Americans say they would accept raising taxes on the wealthy to avoid the cliff."http://news.yahoo.com/republicans-losing-public-opinion-wars...Where are the polls on cutting ANY of the following Government redundancies?342 economic development programs;130 programs serving the disabled;130 programs serving at-risk youth;90 early childhood development programs;75 programs funding international education, cultural, and training exchange activities;...40 separate employment and training programs;28 rural development programs;...23 agencies providing aid to the former Soviet republics;...17 trade agencies monitoring 400 international trade agreements;12 food safety agencies;11 principal statistics agencies; andFour overlapping land management agencies.Source: http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2005/04/top-10-exam... more at the link (sadly).
