Cantor Says House Will Not Vote on Obama Jobs Bill

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) declared President Obama's jobs bill dead on arrival on Monday. Cantor said the House would consider elements of the bill, but refused to consider the entire $447 billion package. Todd Zwillich, The Takeaway's Washington correspondent, talks about the latest episode of political theater on Capitol Hill.

It is not a jobs bill. It is a tax bill and a cynical "campaign document" that is interested in protecting one job and only one job.
The show host earlier this year had no problem at all with the rejection in the US Senate and promised presidential veto of cut, cap and balance which was a serious and long term effort to solve the massive debt and deficit created by Obama and Pelosi.
Spare us the indignation.
