Americans complain about government spending but don't want to cut anything. "We the people" want to have it both ways.

Republicans Have Won a Budget Battle, But Not the War

"Americans oppose government spending in general and favor it in particular. An ABC poll today finds strong public support for an across-the-board cut in federal spending. That is the result you’d expect from a poll that only asks about “federal spending.”

The same ABC poll found that the defense cuts, the only specific program it named, poll badly. This isn’t because military spending is especially popular — Americans are more willing to cut it than most programs — but that almost every actual spending program is popular. When Pew surveyed Americans about nineteen specific categories of actual federal spending, it found overwhelming opposition to cuts in any of them except “aid to the world’s needy,” the scale of which Americans consistently overestimate by an order of magnitude."
