If you expected anything different from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor- well then – I’ve got a bridge I’d like to sell you.
After President Obama gave his speech on ways to create jobs for unemployed Americans, Eric Cantor was among the first Republicans to voice his opposition, albeit rather mildly. But this report shows that although Cantor refuses to spend any money to help or rebuild America, he voted for $120 Billion to be raised to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) voted for over $120 billion to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan, funds that were used to construct and repair schools, roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructure.
Now, Cantor is opposing President Obama’s proposal to spend $30 billion to modernize 35,000 American schools.
The report states that to bring American schools up to standard, about $500 billion will have to be spent. However, even the extremely smaller amount of $30 billion – that was paid for and proposed by the Obama administration – was opposed by the Republican congressman. It states;
“While the funding Obama is proposing is fully offset, Cantor voted to build schools in Iraq and Afghanistan with deficit spending.”
Would anyone be surprised if Cantor’s name is on the Taliban’s payroll?
