Jordan to Senator Reid: Two-Thirds of America Supports Cut, Cap and Balance  

Washington, DC – Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan issued the following statement after a CNN poll completed yesterday showed 66% of Americans support the Cut, Cap and Balance plan to “raise the debt ceiling only if a balanced budget amendment were passed by both houses of Congress and substantial spending cuts and caps on future spending were approved.”

“Senator Reid keeps asking the House to show him the way forward. We already did – it’s called Cut, Cap, and Balance – and the CNN poll taken this week confirms that he is standing in the way of a plan that 2 out of 3 Americans support.”  

“Cut, Cap and Balance passed the House with 234 bipartisan votes. Sen. Reid knows that with open debate and an up-or-down vote, it can pass the Senate with bipartisan support as well. Senator Reid’s decision to hide behind Senate procedures and filibuster the Cut, Cap, and Balance shows us that he knows he is once again on the wrong side of the American people.”  

“Cut, Cap and Balance is the only plan that can actually protect America’s AAA credit rating. It deserves an up-or-down vote in the Senate.”  

The poll also breaks down the responses by age, gender, race, income, education, political affiliation, political views, and more. Cut, Cap, and Balance receives majority support from every single category – even people who self-describe as liberals, Democrats, and anti Tea Party.

In response to another question, 60% say a Balanced Budget Amendment is “necessary” to “get the federal budget deficit under control.”
