Recently we have all been regaled by this claim and the proof through a poll showing how looking at 19 programs 18 of them were candidates for more spending as shown by polling. Here some interesting thoughts on BS from Scott Rasmussen

"... This gap was highlighted by a recent Pew Research Center poll showing that "for 18 of 19 programs tested, majorities want either to increase spending or maintain it at current levels."

On the surface, those results appear to support the Political Class conceit that voters like spending cuts in the abstract but not in specific programs. That's the way it was reported by most media outlets. ..."
