YouCut program. With your support, we are changing Washington's culture of spending into a culture of savings.
I am proud to report to you that last week's winning YouCut item, H.R. 359, passed the House in a 239 - 160 vote. This important spending reduction bill will save taxpayers $617 million by eliminating the Presidential Election Fund, including taxpayer financing of political party conventions - click here to see how your Member of Congress cast their vote.
It was a memorable moment to watch your House of Representatives vote in support of legislation directly backed by the YouCut community. Each week, your votes on the YouCut website will bring legislation to the House floor for a vote. Your support of the YouCut program will serve as a reminder to all those representing you in Washington that we need to get spending under control, so that we can grow the economy, create jobs and get people back to work.
The next three YouCut proposals are now on the website, click here to cast your vote on which item we should bring to the House floor for a vote the week of February 7.
We have only begun to carry out this important work - your involvement is crucial, so that together we will reform Washington.
Rep. Eric Cantor
