According to a new Gallup poll, Americans oppose raising the debt ceiling by 47% to 19%.

But are those same Americans willing to accept the spending cuts that will be required at the same time? I wonder.

    Americans will accept any spending cuts that they perceive as not affecting them or their sphere.

    I wonder if those Americans understand the impact of not raising the debt ceiling and how that would impact our economy?

    I think americans rae more afraid of the debt killing the economy then defaulting.

    Realisticly, we can’t pay back the current debt, so no great advantage to all those stockholders, banks, and pension programs being feed on false hope that the moneys going to be there, somehow. Or Obamas plan to devalue the dollar to devalue the debt.
