Polling report

Americans want their government to create jobs through spending on public works, investments in alternative energy or skills training for the jobless.

They also want the deficit to come down. And most are ready to hand the bill to the wealthy.

A Bloomberg National Poll conducted Dec. 3-7 shows two- thirds of Americans favor taxing the rich to reduce the deficit.
If you break into a rich person's house and steal their stuff, that's a crime. If you vote for a politician who expropriates from the wealthy and redistributes it to you, that's just politics.
