Views On Florida’s Government Spending

Sounds familiar, or not.

Citizens want the same services with less spending, while government officials want the same or less services with more taxes.   But what we are getting is less service with more taxes (in bad times) and more service (not a lot more in good times with a good bit of mismanagement) with more taxes.

The result–always more taxes.

Even in Florida, where adults are least likely to disapprove of the job their elected officials are doing, nearly twothirds of residents believe that their government could spend less and still maintain the same level of services.
