Rep. Eric Cantor has put together the YouCut program. It is a website through his Congress site that allows Americans to email in suggestions for what should be cut from the government budget. I already emailed in and asked for cuts to be made in the military.

I love how the video by Cantor emphasizes that the “crazy spending” is all being done on the other side. What about the two unfunded wars? Or the unfunded trillion dollar Medicare prescription drug benefit? What also of the ballooning security state after 9/11? In general, why has the military, social security, and Medicare been excluded by Republicans from cuts?
