Looks like I was right the other day. This poll from ICR/Money agrees with my assessment that despite the "tax cuts" passed by the Bush administration, most poll respondents felt that their overall tax burden had increased!
Most Americans don't believe they benefited personally from the 2003 tax cut, according to a poll conducted for Money magazine, and would have preferred the government devoted resources to job creation or deficit reduction.
... 60 percent said the tax cut did not personally help them. Only about a third of respondents said they benefited from the tax cut.
... The poll found 76 percent of those surveyed would have preferred the government devote resources to job creation rather than the tax cut, and even 54 percent of Republicans would have chosen jobs over tax cuts.
I think the big question is: will people remember just how successful Bush's big plans were in their personal lives when they hit the polls this November.
