Cantor Asks For Majority Leader Votes

November 3, 2010

Each incoming member of the Republican conference will receive a 16-page document outlining Cantor's vision for the party's goals in the 112th Congress. In the document, Cantor pledges to "limit government and create jobs." Cantor highlighted his YouCut program, which asked readers to identify and vote on wasteful government projects. YouCut voters identified $161 billion in spending cuts.

And Cantor signaled the new Republican majority will increase oversight over the executive branch. "We must create a culture that prioritizes oversight and does it within existing resources," Cantor's proposal says. "Oversight that focuses on our key themes and how we solve problems -- as opposed to scoring political points -- will not only result in better legislation, but also resonate with the public."

Cantor would have Republicans highlight an oversight hearing each week, and committees would issue quarterly oversight reports, while encouraging members to embark on their own oversight initiatives.
