President Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats' demand for tax increases.The man is insane.
"The American people are sold," he said. "The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically."
Obama said 80 percent of Americans are on his side in the debate over what to include in the debt package. Voters are paying attention to "who seems to be trying to get something done," the president said. "It's going to be in the interests of everybody who wants to serve in this town to make sure they are on the right side of that impression."
A poll releases Thursday said 34% of the public supports a tax increase while 55% oppose. So where does this lunatic come up with 80%?
