GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE
For more than half a century, Americans have elected candidates who promise to reduce spending. Yet spending has steadily increased. For just as long, politicians have blamed voters, claiming a lack of public support for the necessary cuts to reduce the budget deficit.
In one of the most provocative, important, and yet hopeful books on the economic state of the country yet written, influential political analyst Scott Rasmussen, called “today’s leading insurgent pollster” by the Wall Street Journal and “a driving force in American politics” by the Washington Post, argues that voters—not politicians—are the ones willing to make the compromises that will eliminate this massive burden from future generations.
Rasmussen draws on a comprehensive review of history, revelatory budgetary documents, and enlightening public-opinion polls to lay out clear-headed, responsible, and reasonable ways to eliminate a deficit that is $120 trillion and counting—all with the vast support of the American people. If only the Political Class would listen.
