(CNSNews.com) – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said that President Barack Obama’s $447-billion American Jobs Act was dead, adding that Obama’s “all or nothing” approach would not work.
At a Capitol Hill briefing on Monday, a reporter asked Cantor whether the "jobs package as a package [was] dead?"
Cantor said, "yes," and shortly thereafter said, “It seems as if the president is in full campaign mode. The president continues to say ‘pass my bill in its entirety.’ As I’ve said from the outset, this all-or-nothing approach is just not acceptable.”
Cantor also questioned whether Obama had the votes for his jobs bill in the Democrat-controlled Senate, saying that the president had some “whipping” to do.
“I think – from a purely practical standpoint – the president’s got some whipping to do on his own side of the aisle,” said Cantor. “Clearly, I think comments made by Democrats on both the House and Senate side indicated they’ve got problems with the president’s bill.”
Just what this country needs. Now we can still hope for impeachment on the fake energy bribes or bobo approving arms trafficking across the border, unless he's taken up his old job as drug dealer.
