Cantor asks for votes: What should government cut?
House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) today launches a new web application called YouCut, giving ordinary citizens a forum for suggesting ways to cut government spending. You can read more on Cantor's proposal and reaction from Democrats on our colleague Dave Weigel's Right Now blog.
Something interesting to remember as Cantor takes the reins on an effort to cut spending: Virginia gets more than its share of federal spending. In 2008, 30 percent of the entire Virginia economy came directly from federal spending.
