Logically, you can expect that it will depend on what you are cutting and what those cuts will lead to. But, from a regular Joe's perspective, it really does not matter what you are cutting, cause they mostly have no idea who is cutting what. So, being willing to accept does not really affect anything. Otherwise, Romney wouldn't be getting half the votes with non-existing or extra-terrestrial policies.

It will reach a balance regardless. Economy will always find its way to make sure that the spending continues.
