You're Gonna Need a Bigger Pair of Scissors

Congressman Eric Cantor dares you to cut the budget your own self:

Today, we are launching YouCut – a first-of-its-kind project 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 – YOUR HOUSE – enact. That’s right, instead of Washington telling YOU how THEY will spend YOUR money, YOU can tell THEM how to save it. After several days of voting, on Monday, May 17th, we will announce the first winner and later that week House Republicans will call for an up-or-down vote on the spending cut. We will repeat this cycle every week for the rest of the year.

That’s from the announcement at Big Government, and you really ought to read the whole thing. But this link is where you get to start going snip snip snip like an over-caffienated veterinarian at an over-capacity animal shelter. At least, that’s what I’ll be doing.

UPDATE: If you’ll excuse the meagerness of the compliment, you’re braver than the Congressional Democrats, who are dragging their feet on passing even a huge bloated uncut budget.
