Nice Graphic showing the results of a recent poll on Americans attitude about cutting Federal Govt spending in light of the upcoming mandatory budget cuts. Interesting results!!!

Here are the results of a very recent Pew Research Poll on Americans attitude toward cutting Federal Spending in light of the looming "sequester".

While not a perfect correlation, Americans want to cut spending on the things we spend the least amount on and want to increase spending on the things where we already spend the most.

The 4 major areas that consume a preponderance of the Federal budget (Social Security, Medicare and Healthcare (Medicaid) and Defense) and really overwhelm the other spending categories show the public has little stomach for reducing those programs.

Pretty amazing that 30% or more people want to increase spending in just about all the categories.
