Americans oppose Obama's government spending spree scheme.

Americans do not support Obama's government-growth plan, otherwise known as a "stimulus." (Stimulate what? Perhaps the government and only the government).

Obama's plan is very simple to describe: it is an attempt to increase government spending dramatically (around $1 trillion worth of spending increases), tax and borrow from the private sector in order to pay for it, all the while claiming that this is actually improving things. The stock market begs to differ: it has been stagnant ever since Obama was elected.

Americans are already not very amused by Obama's spending scheme. 59% of Americans are worried that Obama will increase government spending too much over the next two years. Americans intuitively know that the government is not responsible for our economic success. If government spending was the method to achieve prosperity, North Korea and Cuba would be the wealthiest nations in the world.

According to the poll, 64% of Americans would prefer that Obama focus on tax cuts as opposed to his spending scheme. After all, didn't President Obama run on a platform in which he would cut taxes, and that all new spending would result in cuts in other forms of spending? Is this the first Big Lie from Obama?
