Cut the Deficit, But Don't Raise Taxes or Spend Less

This tease from the forthcoming New York Times/CBS News poll shows the difficulties lawmakers face when dealing with the nation's problems.

"Most Americans continue to want the federal government to focus on reducing the budget deficit rather than spending money to stimulate the national economy... Yet at the same time, most oppose some proposed solution for decreasing it."

"Fifty-six percent of respondents said that they were not willing to pay more in taxes in order to reduce the deficit, and nearly as many said they were not willing for the government to provide fewer services in areas such as health care, education and defense spending."
