MSNBC’s Mitchell claims 60 percent support tax increases

While Republicans have presented a “laundry-list” of problems with President Obama’s initial budget offerings to avoid the fiscal cliff, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell claims there is 60 percent approval to raise taxes.

Saying “the president was campaigning today, in campaign mode, certainly,” Mitchell said that this is what the American people voted for with exit polls showing strong support.

However, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-UT, says otherwise. “The president also said he was for a balanced approach and what we haven’t seen is the other side of that balance.”

Chaffetz said the president “has the gall to suggest we get rid of the debt ceiling votes,” but he wasn’t interested in giving the president a “limitless credit card.”

    Oh yes,…..of course,…..how many millions out of work?..how many on food stamps?………yes of course I want to give away more money to this administration so that they can "spread the wealth" and make me poorer along the way……..I think el presidente should start with the media and liberals that elected him.They are some of the wealthiest people in this country,let them pay an extra 10% of their earnings to support their elected choice!…how long do you think their dedication will last once they do that??
