America Says, ‘Cut Spending’:

A solid majority of respondents in an Associated Press/Ipsos poll released last week said they want the government to pay for Hurricane Katrina relief by cutting spending.

The poll asked 1,000 people their preference among four options for paying for Katrina relief: 42% said they preferred to cut spending on Iraq; 29% said to delay or cancel tax cuts; 14% said borrow the money; and 11% said cut domestic spending on programs such as education, welfare, transportation and health care. A total of 53%, in other words, favored spending cuts over taking on more federal debt or canceling tax cuts.
