Republican Whip Eric Cantor announced the “You Cut” program yesterday on Big Government and the Greta Van Susteren Show on FOX News.
Republican Whip Eric Cantor introduces YouCut, a first-of-its kind initiative designed to change the culture of spending in Washington to a culture of saving.
YouCut – a first-of-its-kind project – is designed to defeat the permissive culture of runaway spending in Congress. It allows you to vote, both online and on your cell phone, on spending cuts that you want to see the House enact. America is at a crossroads and the choices we make at this critical time will determine what kind of country we want to be. To get back on the right path, Congress must start to make some choices that simply can’t be delayed any longer. While we won’t be able to solve our deficit problems overnight or with one silver bullet, we can and we must begin to replace the culture of spending that now dominates Washington with a culture of savings. Just imagine if your government was as focused on saving money as it is on spending money.
