Group calls on Obama to 'show us your cuts' for Mardi Gras

Bankrupting America says the Obama administration could be a little more flirty when it comes to revealing what programs it might cut.

"We've heard a lot of empty rhetoric about reducing the debt, but we've seen very little action to get our spending under control," said Public Notice Executive Director Gretchen Hamel. "Americans aren't looking for another tax hike — they're looking for their leaders in Washington to stop adding to the debt and agree on a long-term plan to spend our tax dollars responsibly.  That's why we're going to Capitol Hill to tell Washington to 'Show Us Your Cuts!' "

There's even a Twitter hashtag, #ShowUsYourCuts!

Now, it remains to be seen whether Obama will earn his beads Tuesday night.
