Fox News – House Majority Leader, millionaire, Eric Cantor (R-VA):

“We know in this country there is a complaint on the folks on the top end of the income scale that they make too much and folks on the end don’t make enough. We need to encourage those on the top income scale to create more jobs.  We are about income mobility and that’s what we should be focused on to take care of the income disparity.”


Representative, millionaire, Cantor; like every other GOP member of Congress, voted NO on President Obama’s  jobs bill.


I mean, go figure.

Obama Warns Cantor ‘Don’t Call My Bluff’ {asshole??}; As Debt Talks Stall

Via: Huffington Post

Lawmakers and the White House had what nearly every party is describing as a “tough” and “testy” meeting on the debt ceiling Wednesday afternoon, culminating in a stormy exchange between President Obama and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

It was the fifth straight day of talks, but the first in which attendees, speaking on background, were willing to admit that steps were taken backwards.

According to multiple sources, disagreements surfaced early, in the middle and at the end of the nearly two-hour talks. At issue was Cantor’s repeated push to do a short-term resolution and Obama’s insistence that he would not accept one.

“Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people on this,” the president said, according to both Cantor and another attendee. “This process is confirming what the American people think is the worst about Washington: that everyone is more interested in posturing, political positioning, and protecting their base, than in resolving real problems.”

Cantor, speaking to reporters after the meeting, said that the president “abruptly” walked off after offering his scolding.

“I know why he lost his temper. He’s frustrated. We’re all frustrated,” the Virginia Republican said.

Democratic officials had a different interpretation. “The meeting ended with Cantor being dressed down while sitting in silence,” one official said in an email.

“[The president] said Cantor could not have it both ways of insisting on dollar-for-dollar and STILL NOT BEING OPEN TO REVENUES.”




It’s nice to see Boehner, Boner, whatever; holding back the tears. barely

Eric Cantor’s debt ceiling hissy fit

Via: Salon

The House majority leader picks up his marbles and repeats his mantra:

No tax hikes, or we shoot the hostage.

An enormous quantity of pixels has been wasted in the wake of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s Thursday announcement that he is abandoning negotiations on a debt ceiling deal with the White House. Cantor’s explanation that he is frustrated at Democratic insistence that “tax hikes” be part of any long-term deficit reduction deal has inspired an impressive outburst of blogospheric game theorizing.

One popular analysis: There’s a split in the Republican camp!

Speaker of the House John Boehner knows that revenue increases have to be included in any deal, and Cantor wants to avoid any taint of any such heresy.

1) And then, once the deal is done, Cantor will lead a coup to depose the apostate.


2) Or maybe, by leaving, Cantor is giving cover to Boehner to do just such a deal! By withdrawing now, he and the other GOP hard-liners who will refuse to vote for lifting the debt ceiling under any circumstances will maintain their purity while Boehner cobbles together enough votes from Democrats and relatively sane Republicans to get a deal passed.



the choice:

1 or 2; take your pick, but I’m going with 1.
