Poll: Majority Opposes Cuts In Entitlement Benefits
A new Pew Research Poll shows that the American public continues to remain strongly supportive of entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security, and opposed to any changes that would result in benefit cuts:
On the broad question of whether it is more important to reduce the budget deficit or to maintain current Medicare and Social Security benefits, the public decisively supports maintaining the status quo. Six-in-ten (60%) say it is more important to keep Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are; only about half as many (32%) say it is more important to take steps to reduce the budget deficit.More poll details at the link, but the take away point is clear — the public does not support anything that it perceives as a cut to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. GOP, the ball is in your court.
