  •  The Most Popular Plan To Avert Looming Budget Cuts (23+ / 0-)

    ..Is The Progressive Caucus’ The People's Budget

    According to a new poll commissioned by the Business Insider, the Progressive Caucus’ plan is the most popular of the three:
    Surprisingly, the plan that polled the strongest was the House Progressive Caucus plan. More than half of respondents supported it compared to sequestration and just a fifth of respondents were opposed.

    – A plurality of people — 28 percent — believed the House Progressive Caucus Plan would have the least financial impact on them personally. This makes the most sense, as only 14 percent of respondents reported having income over $150,000.

    – Shockingly, 47 percent of Republicans preferred the House Progressive plan to the sequester. This means that Republicans supported the House Progressive plan just as much as they supported their own party’s plan.
     Support for the Senate Democrat plan was weak, with just fewer than half of respondents preferring that plan compared with the sequester.

    – Opposition to the House Republican plan was strong, with 57 percent preferring the sequester to that plan.

    This should be the starting baseline for negotiating imo. Stun the republicans. Show them where the actual middle of the road begins.
