Roughly one-quarter of Americans say they receive some form of cash benefits from the government, and most are not willing to sacrifice any of that money to help cut the size of the federal budget.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Adults say they do not receive any kind of government cash benefits, but 23% say they do.
Of those who do receive government money, just 34% are at least somewhat willing to cut some of their own benefits to reduce the size of the federal budget, with 14% who say they are Very Willing to do so. But 63% are not willing to consider any benefit reductions, including 33% who are not at all willing.
This is exactly what Democrats rely on in the incessant promotion of their big government, welfare state mentality.
