Americans for Prosperity: Might as well give up

Americans for Prosperity did a survey in Phoenix and Glendale and are now claiming that not only is any sort of tax increase unpopular, but bascially all deficit reducing options are a no-go.  Then they throw in this doozy:

“Nearly all of the deficit-reducing options are unpopular,” Jenney said, “so our elected officials may as well vote on principle.”

Yeah, guys, you might as well vote to keep doing nothing.  Go ahead, give up.  Its hard, so don’t try.  Stick to your principles of doing nothing at all. 

They go on to talk about sticking to cuts and a bunch of other nebulous options.  Needless to say, they don’t really care what voters think about the cuts that have already been made or what the state will look like after another $2 to 3 billion in cuts.  Are there really enough cuts that can be made?  No one has been able to answer that question.
