    Americans, Including Republicans, Want Debt Compromise

    But Americans also worry that such a plan might not include major spending cuts

    Two-thirds of Americans would like government officials to agree to a compromise plan on the debt and budget deficit negotiations now underway. Fewer than 3 in 10 want lawmakers who share their views on the debt and budget deficit to hold out for their desired plan. A majority of Republicans, independents, and Democrats favor reaching a compromise.

    that's what we are looking at, and that's why we are looking at it.

      The Traditional Media has successfully Manufactured Consent. This will be a case where the "wishes" of the American people becomes law.

      While I don't hold Obama in high esteem, that doesn't mean I would say he's the Devil Incarnate and the lessor of evils. He is merely the lessee of evils.
