If France had to reduce its debt and public deficits, would you prefer that it be done principally
by strongly reducing its (ie the country's) spending
by strongly increasing taxes
I somehow find that "strongly" predisposes to answer reduce spending.
Of course, if it's not stated that it's "schools, hospitals, and pensions", but just "France", people will tend to envisage spending cuts as less champagne and petits fours.
