The massive federal government budget deficit has been a key factor in the rise of the Tea Party.

Given the choice, a lot of Americans would probably like to cast their own vote on what government programs should be cut from the budget. Now they can using the Internet website "YouCut."

YouCut was created by House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, R-Va. It's a web page that lists five different federal programs every week and lets users vote either online or by using their cell phone on which program they think should be eliminated.

Cantor will then try to bring up for debate on the House floor, the program that receives the most votes.

"It allows us to focus on out-of-control federal spending, the number one issue for millions of Americans," Cantor said.

Internet and cell phone users have cast more than 1 million votes since the YouCut website went online last May.

See what government programs are listed on YouCut this week.
