As you may know, last year Congress passed and President Obama signed a bill that attempted to stimulate the economy by increasing federal government spending and cutting taxes at a total cost to the government of about eight hundred billion dollars. Based on what you have read or heard about this, do you favor or oppose that bill?
42% Favor, 56% Oppose
Do you think that the projects that the government has spent money on under that bill have mostly been useful projects that will benefit the economy, or have mostly been projects that were included in the bill for purely political reasons and will have no economic impact?
36% Projects to benefit economy
63% Projects for political reasons
How much of the money spent under that bill so far do you think has been wasted -- nearly all of it, most of it, about half of it, only a little of it, or none of it?
21% Nearly all
29% About half
