Alan Grayson's E-newsletter Survey

I have written in the past about how I received in the mail various Republican push polls designed as surveys like the GOP YouCut program and the "2009 Obama Agenda Survey."  Today, I checked my e-mail and noticed a message from Florida Rep. Alan Grayson asking me to submit a survey so he can better represent his constituency.  I was somewhat expecting a Democratic push poll but instead I found a very balanced questionnaire.  Here are the questions as they appeared on the survey (I even left the dots filled to show my responses):

Look at the wording Grayson uses.  Would a Republican survey ask what is the best way to reduce the federal defecit and then list "cut defense spending?"  No.  More likely then not the GOP question and answer would read as the following:
The Democrats plan to increase the federal defecit by X amount of dollars with their radical health care legislation and "death panels."  What do you think is the best way to reduce the federal defecit?
  • Raise taxes on the average American as well as making new ones (like the proposed "tanning tax")
  • Reduce Social Security, Medicare, and other entitlements that are bankrupting this nation
  • Cut defense spending making us vulnerable to terrorist attacks as well as sending the wrong message to America's enemies
  • Stop paying interest on the federal debt because that money is only going to communist Chinese bondholders
Alan Grayson's survey was a welcome site to this author.
