Republicans Support Big Cuts in Spending Even If it Forces a Government Shutdown.

Bookmark and Share Last week White House 2012 asked readers if Republicans should hold out for significant spending cuts and risk the Presidents vetoing of a budget that would force a shutdown of the federal government. Had the House Republicans and Senate Democrats not brokered a deal last week that passed a continuing resolution which delayed the inevitable by two weeks, we could have easily seen a shut down already.

But the possibility for a government shutdown still exists and according to the White House 2012 poll conducted between Sunday, February 27th and Sunday March 6th, readers overwhelming support Republicans sticking to their guns and forcing Democrats to go along with significant budget cuts even if itforces a shutdown of the federal government.

82.46% of respondents believe that Republicans must hold their ground, while a mere 17.54% believe that they should do all they can to avoid a such a disruption of government.

The poll proves two things.

First, the majority of White House 2012 readers are conservatives, at least fiscally. (Thank goodness for that). That would account for the enormous lean towards cuts. But it also shows that there is unity within the G.O.P. on the issue of federal spending. Republicans clearly stand united in a small government model which believes in less government, less debt and more freedom.

This week White House 2012 asks readers if Mitt Romney can overcome his creation of a Massachusetts healthcare plan that was seen as a precursor to Obamacare, by using the argument that he would never usurp the rights of states by adopting a one-size-fits-all healthcare program for all the states.

The healthcare plan that Mitt Romney was instrumental in creating and passing when he was Governor of Massachusetts, is seen as the largest hurdle for him to overcome in his anticipated run for the Republican presidential nomination.
