@Tony: this is a mini-project in WDMMG where your super-gdocs skills
would be amazingly useful and put to good use ...
Right now (correct me if I'm wrong Lisa!) we need help:
* Merge/compare all the different sources of cuts data including our
own together (currently spread around various different google docs
* Compare with some of the suggested cuts of e.g. Tax Payers
Alliance and IFS (see Lisa's comments below)
* Do some visualization!
* Get a workflow about cleaning and processing the data we get in

This is great Lisa. I've taken the liberty of making a couple of mods:
a) add amount field (still have only 3 fields total) and many people
could put this.
b) Put all items on 1 page (you only have 3 fields!)
c) Reworked help text
