Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection focuses on issues related to the federal budget deficit. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way Bush and the Democrats in Congress were handling the federal budget deficit, if it was necessary for the government to raise taxes to help balance the federal budget deficit, and if they approved of various measures in the agreed-upon budget deficit reduction plan. Other topics covered include reduction of the capital gains tax on profits from sale of investments, increasing the amount of Social Security benefits that can be taxed, and the feasibility of the deficit reduction package. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, race, income, sex, and state/region of residence.
