Save Our State of Massachusetts
I’m doing my part. Biting the bullet – cutting expenses.
I HOPE YOU WILL PARTICIPATE AND DO YOUR PART.
The President ordered the cabinet to cut $100 million from the $3.5 trillion federal budget. I’m so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2000 a month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc, but it’s time to get out the budget cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut back. I’m going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio, 1/35,000 of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2000 a month; I’m going to have to cut that number by six cents. Yes, I’m going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that’s what sacrifice is all about. I’ll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly, luxuries.
Did the president actually think no one would do the math?
Then be sure to let Representatives Boehner and Cantor know that they must stand firm on the federal budget, and the debt ceiling if this country is going to have a chance to prosper again. A call/email to Rep. Markey’s office is just as important even though it may not be as well received!
Today, we face the challenge of an impending debt crisis brought about by Washington’s out-of-control spending. It is clear that we can and we must get our fiscal house in order. That is why the next three items are posted on the YouCut website – I hope you’ll click here and take a moment to vote on which item we should bring up for a vote on the House floor.
Americans have a unique ability to apply creativity, intellect and leadership to solve any problem. That’s why so many Americans take part in YouCut each week: to participate in an ideas-focused community that says it is time for Washington to tighten the belt, cut wasteful spending, and end duplicative government programs.
To be strong, to lead, to grow, and to empower people, we’ve got to shift from having a government that smothers new jobs and business growth to one that nurtures an environment for getting people back to work.
Only then can we get back to what Americans do best: innovate, compete and lead.
Rep. Eric Cantor
