How Would You Stimulate the Economy?

'Help us get it right,' says GOP Whip Eric Cantor

House Republican Whip Eric Cantor wants you to have a seat at the table as Congress debates the best way to promote economic growth. The Virginia Republican opened his website to public comments and encouraged citizens to send video submissions via YouTube.

Cantor has made transparency an important factor in the economic stimulus debate. Earlier in the week, he challenged Obama to create a real-time online ledger of the stimulus spending.

For conservatives to successfully fight the bad ideas in Obama’s plan, they will need alternative ideas of their own. My colleagues at The Heritage Foundation have identified tax relief and budget reform as two places to start. Now Cantor wants to know what you have to say. Send him a comment or record your own video.
