Rep. Cantor started the YouCut website to solicit input from We the People on ways to cut the federal budget. The problem, however, is that it’s difficult to know what to suggest except in the broadest sense because We the People don’t know on what our government spends our money. I guarantee you that if the entire budget, excepting anything that impacts national security, were put online with the budgets of every agency and department listed down to paperclips and sticky notes we’d find plenty to cut. We just need the ability to look. I recommend each budget line have three options for us to choose, No Change, Cut Back, and Eliminate (or something similar) we could vote democratically for items to cut. Let’s get RedState to champion this idea. What say you?
