Contributing sentiments towards policy:

60% : They want to spare military spending, Social Security, and Medicare (health insurance for seniors and disabled).
54% : The Republicans say that their goal is to balance the budget, without touching the military, social security, or Medicare.
48% : What the Republicans are demanding is the rolling back of federal Government spending.
45% : However, they want to eliminate student loan relief, put work requirements for Medicaid (health insurance for low-income households), SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps), cutting funds to the IRS (which would make it easier to cheat on taxes and reduce tax revenues, making the deficit bigger), and cutting green energy subsidies passed under the recent Inflation Reduction Act.
10% : By refusing to raise the debt ceiling and forcing a possible reneging of U.S. spending obligations, Republicans caused a partial government shutdown in 1995-96 under President Clinton, forced major cuts in government spending in 2011 under President Obama, and are now demanding more spending cuts under President Biden.
