Eric Cantor threatens to block relief funds for disaster victims
Eric Cantor is threatening to block relief funds for victims of the recent tornados in the South and Mid-West. Two American cities have been flattened, but all Eric Cantor cares about are tax cuts for the hyper-wealthy.
Thankfully, Eric Cantor's days as majority leader are numbered. Cantor has endlessly championed the Ryan budget that destroys Medicare. That budget is a millstone around the necks of the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. When Republicans lose their majority next November, the shell-shocked survivors of Cantor's caucus are going to give him the boot for his failed leadership.
