Americans have had enough of Biden’s out-of-control spending.

According to Rasmussen Reports, 56% of Americans would rather have a partial government shutdown until Congress can get spending under control; 34% say they want more spending to avoid a shutdown.

From Breitbart News:

ADDITIONALLY, WHEN LOOKED AT BY PARTY, 73 PERCENT OF REPUBLICANS AND 56 PERCENT OF INDEPENDENT RESPONDENTS SAID THEY WOULD PREFER TO HAVE A PARTIAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN UNTIL CONGRESS CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO CUT SPENDING OR KEEP IT THE SAME, WHILE ONLY 41 PERCENT OF DEMOCRATS FELT THE SAME WAY. ON THE OTHER HAND, MORE DEMOCRATS (50 PERCENT) WOULD PREFER TO HAVE MORE SPENDING TO AVOID A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN.

THIS POLL COMES AS HOUSE SPEAKER KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA) AND THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS WILL SOON HAVE TO NEGOTIATE A DEAL TO CLEAR THE DEBT CEILING WITH THE DEMOCRATS. HOWEVER, CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE HAVE BEEN FIRM ON SLASHING SPENDING BEFORE RAISING THE CEILING.IN COMPARISON, FOUR YEARS AGO UNDER FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, THE SAME POLL FOUND THAT 54 PERCENT PREFERRED A SHUTDOWN WHEN DEMOCRATS FOUGHT OVER THE DEBT CEILING, WITH ONLY 31 PERCENT SAYING THAT THEY PREFERRED THE OPPOSITE.
