Source Organization: Pew Research Center

09/20/2010 - Nearly four-in-ten Americans (39%) say that allowing Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy to expire at the end of this year would hurt the economy, while about a quarter each say this would help the economy (26%) or have no effect (26%).

The latest Pew Research/National Journal Congressional Connection poll, sponsored by SHRM, conducted September 16-19 among 1,005 adults, finds that Republicans are much more likely than Democrats or independents to say that ending the tax breaks for annual income above $250,000 would hurt the economy.  Six-in-ten Republicans (60%) say this, compared with 32% of Democrats and 33% of independents.
