Eric Cantor Addresses Voters' Frustrations

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

What happens in the Florida Primary is not just important to Florida, Romney, Gingrich and the gang. This is a campaign year for everyone in the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate. And while Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is in a safe seat in his own district he's leading the charge to get more GOP members into the House and Senate.

Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich got some time with the high profile House Majority Leader to find out just how the Republican leadership plans to pull in votes between now and November.

Why no mention of over 1000 days with no budget from the US Senate which predates the Republican majority in the House which passed the budget that Pelosi failed to provide while the President's unserious budget was defeated in the US Senate 97-0? The debt ceiling and taxes could have raised in 2010 but a financial crisis was manufactured by the President in order to have a political fight with his opposition.
In 2011 the Democratic leadership deliberately obstructed so they could blame Republicans and the media dutifully flogs that mendacious talking point.
