YouCut is designed for the people to let their voices be heard and to change Washington's culture of spending into a culture of savings. This project of the Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor allows you to vote on spending cuts that you want to see the House enact. YouCut has already proposed over $120 Billion in federal cuts voted on by the people. Unfortunately, as the minority party they are unable to act on the legislation. The GOP House majority of the incoming 112th Congress will act. In addition, you will be able to see which representative voted in favor or against the wishes of the American people. You can vote online or by cell phone. Plus, you can make suggestions on cuts that may be included in future votes. More than 1.3 million votes have been cast since the site was created.[1] In their twelfth week of operation they are asking the public to vote on cutting NPR funding in the wake of Juan Williams firing.
