Polls like this one always leave me scratching my head in confusion. A large majority of Americans believe the federal government is too big. But they voted to reelect the guy who made government grow even more. Go figure.
Six in 10 Americans (60%) believe the federal government has too much power, one percentage point above the previous high recorded in September 2010. At least half of Americans since 2005 have said the government has too much power. Thirty-two percent now say the government has the right amount of power. Few say it has too little power. …
This new high encompasses Republicans (81%), who are now more likely than at any time since 2002 to say the government has too much power, and Democrats (38%), who now are more likely to say this than at any time since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.
I wonder how many of those Republicans sat out the last election.
Well, if people think government is too big now, just wait until Obamacare is fully implemented. Good grief.
