Poll: Most Americans Support Tax Hikes For High-Income Earners
But not so keen on entitlement cuts
Most Americans want President Obama and congressional Republicans to compromise on a budget agreement, though they, too, are unhappy about the options that would avert the "fiscal cliff," according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Most Americans oppose slashing spending on Medicaid and the military, as well as raising the age for Medicare eligibility and slowing the increase of Social Security benefits, all of which appear to be on the table in negotiations. Majorities call each of these items "unacceptable."
