There has been plenty of talk nationwide about the senate passing a new budget, and whether or not the national debt ceiling will be raised. Some propose tax increases and some propose less spending as a part of that budget.
Wyoming Senator John Barrasso said last week during a senate floor hearing that the solution to the problem is not that Americans should be taxed more because the problem is that they spend too much. He suggests that Washington should also spend less, claiming, the current administration has increased the national debt and will continue to do so.
President Obama says he wants to wait a couple of years, potentially 2013, before implementing higher taxes.
This week's Bank of Sheridan/sheridanmedia.com poll question is: Should tax increases and spending cuts both be a part of a federal budget agreement?
