Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) speaks on his proposal (H.R. 5570) to save taxpayers upwards of $10 billion by prohibiting the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from hiring thousands of additional agents and employees to enforce the new health care overhaul. Upton's spending cut proposal was selected for a vote on the House Floor by the American people via the groundbreaking YouCut program. Unfortunately, Upton's proposal was defeated by a near-party-line vote of 243-181.

Each week, YouCut offers the public a list of five proposals aimed at reducing government spending. In turn, participants may vote for the one proposal that they would most like to see addressed by Congress. The following week, House Republicans will seek a vote on the House Floor on whether or not to take up and debate the top vote getter selected by the public. Votes may be cast online on the Republican Whip's website at http://republicanwhip.house.gov/YouCut, by text messaging one's vote to 68398.
