Eric Canter's – You Cut Program

Eric Canter as the Republican Whip in the House is one of the bright stars in the conservative movement. His You Cut Program gives each of a voice in how we believe the budget could be cut to end this out of control spending that is leading our nation into a black hole of crushing debt. Watch this short video and then make your voice heard.

    When I was a supply Sgt.(US ARMY) I found out that it took a long
    time to receive repair parts for our trucks and jeeps.
    Also they were very costly by using the Army Catalogs.
    So we were given permission to type up a purchase order
    and go to a local vender. This saved our Unit 2/3rds the cost.
    Why do we have to spend so much ??? This would save the Tax
    Payers Money!!!! I Retired from the Army Reserve 19 years ago.
    Good luck on this “You Cut”
    Brian Nichols MSGT RETIRED….

    i live in canter district and a republican, with that said, you know when eric is lying – HIS LIPS ARE MOVING.

  6. Our congressman Bill Flores links to Cantor’s “YouCut” program near the bottom left of his http://flores.house.gov website. Click on that link and you will be invited to “review the options and vote on which spending cut you believe should be sponsored by the YouCut program.”

    For giggles, let’s select 100% of the cuts that Cantor offers us:
    1) $180 million over 10 years from the Corporation for Travel Promo;
    2) $210 million over 10 years from the East-West Center;
    3) $2.5 billion over 10 years from the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Program.

    Cool! We did it! We selected $2.89 billion in cuts (over 10 years). Now, let’s compare that with the federal DEFICIT for fiscal year 2011 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_United_States_federal_budget), which is $1.65 trillion.

    Amazing! $2.89 billion is only .175% of the 2011 deficit! This means that if we repeat the maximum “YouCut” option of $2.89 billion a total of 571 times, we will have retired the 2011 DEFICIT alone (assuming we maxed our cuts over 1 year instead of 10 years as prescribed by Cantor). I know! It’s easy to be mollified by the sound of cuts in the billions of dollars, but relative to the federal government’s multi-trillion dollar over-spending, it’s quite simply NOT ENOUGH!
