Congressional Democrats are committed to reigniting the American dream by rebuilding the pillars of America that have made our economy strong: small businesses, entrepreneurs, and a thriving middle class.
And while House Republicans—who have been in the Majority for over a year—still don’t have a jobs agenda, Americans support President Obama’s proposals to grow our economy and strengthen the middle class:
By a 28 point margin (63 to 35) Americans support increasing federal income taxes on upper-income Americans.
By a 51 point margin (75 to 24) Americans support increasing federal investment in education and job training for the long-term unemployed.
By a 45 point margin (69 to 24) Americans support pressuring China to allow fairer trade between the United States and China.
By a 32 point margin (64 to 32) Americans support increasing federal investment supporting the development of alternative energy sources.
