Gen Xers, Baby Boomers and Seniors Prefer Ryan’s Budget Over Obama’s Plan

Prefer Ryan’s Budget Over Obama’s Plan

The liberal attack machine is operating on overdrive to attack Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan, but it’s failing to convince a large number of Americans, according to two new polls.

A surprising USA Today/Gallup poll today revealed that a plurality of Americans over the age of 30 — including Gen Xers, Baby Boomers and seniors — support Ryan’s proposal to reduce the deficit over President Obama’s plan. The only age group preferring Obama’s plan were those aged 18-29.

“Pluralities of middle-aged Americans as well as those 65 and older prefer Ryan’s plan to Obama’s,” according to Gallup.

The news comes as liberals and the mainstream media attempt to vilify conservatives over the Ryan budget during the congressional recess. News outlets from Politico to the New York Times have bought the liberal line that Americans are revolting.

The USA Today/Gallup poll would suggest otherwise. And it’s not the only evidence. Last week the CBS News/New York Times poll — a survey that skews to the left — found a plurality of Americans support Ryan’s Medicare reforms. John Fund reported for the Wall Street Journal:

A startling 47% approved of changing Medicare from a program in which the government ‘pays doctors and hospitals for treating seniors’ to a program in which the government ‘helps seniors purchase private health insurance.’ Only 41% disagreed.


About todaysawareness

The site, “beawaretoday”, is a unique prospective, as if looking down from 30,000 feet at the world of Local, National, and Foreign Affairs. Most people go through each day only seeing what is immediately affecting them and most only have a vision for dealing with their issues of only about 5 to 7 days. With, “beawaretoday”, we look at what is happening around the World and what I call the Domino Effect, to project problems that are forthcoming so that people can plan ahead to deal with them vs. dealing the alternative. I created the blog, “beawaretoday” so that I could share a forum to discuss, Current, Domestic and Foreign Affairs that affect us all through the Domino effect. I encourage you to join the Discussions or at least enjoy reading the content. Thank you, Tom Campbell
