Congressman Tim Scott today encouraged South Carolinians to participate in this week's YouCut, an initiative begun by House Republicans to give Americans the opportunity to cast their ballot on government spending decisions. The voting for the newest installment of YouCut will be open from December 14-21.
Scott explained that the program gives constituents the chance to vote on one of three options for the federal government to save money. The winning proposal is then introduced as legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.
"The YouCut program is a great way for each and every American to take an active role in helping restore fiscal sanity in Washington," Scott said. "I hope everyone will take this great opportunity to heart, review the three proposals and vote for their favorite."
According to the House Majority Leader's website, when House Republicans "launched YouCut over a year ago, we could have never imagined how enthused people were by the effort, how engaged they became, and how successful the program would be in achieving its mission of changing the culture of spending into a culture of savings. Millions of votes were cast across the country to encourage the House to cut spending, and that is exactly what we continue to do."
