I don’t know how active you are politically. I don’t know if you spend time or money supporting candidates and issues. I do what I can when I can with what I can spare. One of the projects no-cost participation is the YouCut project run by Eric Cantor and his staff. For those of you who just said “who?”, Eric Cantor is the current minority whip in the House of Representatives. He presents budget items for an up or down vote on the floor of the House based on how the public (us) vote.
I vote every time a slate of proposed cuts is presented. With a “tax and spend” slate of legislators in majority, it’s been a pretty non-productive year for cutting Government waste.
The Minority Whip’s office has a put up a chart of the legislators and the percentages of for voting for the YouCut measures. It’s pretty interesting reading! There are actually fiscally minded Democrats! Who knew?!
