Thread: The Price Is Right - Mass Deportation Edition

    The Price Is Right - Mass Deportation Edition




    The idea here is to gauge the relative importance of two political issues (cutting spending and deporting illegals) in the minds of RPFers.

    Suppose that you have the power to either cut government spending, or have the government deport all illegals, but not both.

    How large would the spending cut have to be for you to take the spending cut over the deportations?

    Vote accordingly

    P.S. I forgot to include an option for amounts larger than $1T, so if that's your position, just select the $1T option and explain in-post.

    P.P.S. I also forgot to mention in the Q that you should select the smallest amount you would accept, if that isn't obvious.

    P.P.P.S. We really should be able to edit polls...

    Hey guys, I butchered this poll's wording, so I'm just going to have it deleted and repost.

    Stay tuned, assuming anyone's interested.
