A Fox News poll finds that most Americans don't mind getting screwed by the very rich:

A majority of American voters approve of the proposed deal to preserve Bush-era tax cuts agreed on between President Obama and Republican leaders in Congress, and voters are more likely to think the compromises made by both sides represent how things “should” work in Washington.
A Fox News poll released Thursday found that by 68 to 26 percent, most voters approve of the compromise deal.
Moreover, approval is across the board: 69 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of Democrats and 67 percent of independents endorsed the deal.
When asked what they would do if forced to choose between either continuing the tax cuts for all Americans or letting taxes increase for all Americans, 73 percent of voters said they would continue the tax cuts for all. That includes 83 percent of Republicans, 73 percent independents and 64 percent of Democrats.
If this is even half true, it's still deeply depressing. Why do we on the left even bother?
