80% of Americans Believe Congress Has A Spending Problem

July 16, 2011

Finally, Americans are speaking out and letting Congressional members know they have a spending problem.  The latest poll out suggests 80% of Americans Believe Congress has a spending problem and want them to rein in the spending and finally do what is right for America and not their re-election campaigns.

This poll was done in the confines of a local restaurant here in Las Vegas.  As we were eating and enjoying pleasant conversation the subject came up “Does Congress Spend More Than They Should?’ Out of the 5 people at the table 4 exclaimed yes to the question. The only one who thought Congress didn’t have the spending problem was a union member for the local school district.  With that said imagine what the real statistics would be if I were to poll say 500 or 1000 individuals all across the Nation?

I would venture to say the results would be close if not exactly the same as my small sample poll.  14.5 trillion dollars in debt with 110 trillion in unfunded mandates due with Congress having no idea how to pay them at this point in time. Yes I would agree with those 80%, Congress has a spending problem that needs to be addressed immediately if not sooner.
