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.”
