We mentioned this earlier with respect to NPR, but go check out the other spending cuts Eric Cantor's little site YouCut.com has managed to find, with the help of visitors and supporters. The total amount saved so far? $130 billion. Not nearly enough even to pay for extending the sunset for Bush's tax cuts, which come in at $700 billion. And not even in the ball park of $4 trillion or so that we need to find before 2020. But they have their priorities straight: the top featured two cuts right now (after NPR) are
1. The Exchanges with Historic Whaling and Trading Partners program
2. Matching Federal Funds For Primary Candidates.
I mean: it's just sad. They mounted a second American revolution to end the Exchanges with Historic Whaling and Trading Partners program? How do they even keep a straight face when saying they want to return to fiscal balance?
