BIDEN’S INFRASTRUCTURE-JOBS-CLIMATE SPENDING PLAN
Among voters nationwide
SUPPORT FOR OVERALL PLAN
President Biden announced his American Jobs Plan, a $2.3 trillion plan intended to address infrastructure, climate change, and job creation. From what you ́ve read or heard, do you support or oppose this plan?
RON’S COMMENT: 92% of Democrats, 18% of Republicans and 51% of independents support the Biden plan as explained in this poll question. While 25% of voters say the plan goes too far, 20% say it doesn’t go far enough and another 40% say it’s about right.
PAY FOR THE PLAN
Do you support or oppose funding the American Jobs Plan in any of the following ways:
Increasing taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year?
Raising the corporate tax rate above the current 21 percent?
A tax of at least 21 percent on the earnings U.S. corporations make in other countries?
Increasing the gas tax to adjust for inflation?
Increasing usage fees such as tolls?
Adjustments of the tax rates to increase taxes on all Americans?
Borrow money and just add to the national debt?
RON’S COMMENT: As Sen. Russell Long used to say, “Don’t tax you. Don’t tax me. Tax the fellow behind the tree.” Based on this poll, it appears that voters oppose any taxes or fees they may have to pay personally (i.e., income and gas taxes, tolls), but are more likely to favor taxing others (those making more than $400k, corporations)…. 90% of Democrats, 32% of Republicans and 44% of independents support increasing taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year…. 80% of Democrats, 17% of Republicans and 48% of independents support raising the corporate tax rate above the current 21 percent.
