Launched today, YouCut!
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. Vote on this page today for your priorities and together we can begin to change Washington’s culture of spending into a culture of savings.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel comes close to the mark with regard to how productive this will be in its lead paragraph:
Instead of voting for your favorite “American Idol” or “Dancing with the Stars” contestants, you can now vote on your favorite federal spending cut – courtesy of the GOP.
House Republicans say their new “YouCut” program will give voters the chance to suggest budget-slashing proposals directly to members of Congress and see lawmakers act on their ideas. Republicans say they will try to force colleagues to vote on the cuts every week on the House floor.
Deploy the ROFLCopter!
Astute observers will note that the “project” targets just shy of a mere $6 billion of the $3.6 trillion 2010 proposed budget, nearly all of which class as favorite Republican targets. Not one red cent of the nearly $800 billion per year to fund the military would be on the table, let alone the around $300 billion a year which buys such nice things as endless war in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Pakistan.
