Leader Cantor Statement on the Ongoing
Spending Debate
Washington, D.C. ? House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued
the following statement regarding the ongoing spending debate:

“Senator Schumer’s comments this morning that the negotiations on a long
term solution to fund the government for the remainder of the year are going
well are completely farfetched. Leader Reid, Senator Schumer and the White
House continue to abandon their responsibility to get our fiscal house in order
by negotiating off of the status quo and refusing to offer any sort of serious
plan for how to cut spending. House Republicans continue to offer serious
solutions to get our fiscal House in order, but we cannot keep doing it alone. If
Senators Reid and Schumer insist on shutting down the government because
they want to protect every last dollar and cent of federal spending then that will
be on their hands.”
