A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that a strong majority (78%) of Amercians oppose cutting Medicare. Moreover, a majority (56%) of Americans polled oppose cutting military spending. Conversely, a significant majority (72%) of Americans apparently support raising taxes on incomes over $250,000.
Medicare and military spending are apparently popular programs amongst Americans, while raising taxes for those earning over $250,000 appears acceptable, at least according to this poll.
