Eric Cantor blocks payroll tax cut extension for middle class
For purely partisan reasons, Eric Cantor has blocked a payroll tax cut extension for the middle class. Cantor is holding out for sweetheart deals for his corporate backers and the super wealthy. Millions of Americans are just barely making it. Cantor's callous gaming of the system on behalf of the super wealthy could send millions of Americans of the edge into financial failure and poverty.
President Obama commented on the blockage of the payroll tax cut extension, see the video above. Cantor's actions are nothing less than a betrayal of working Americans and he did it for no other reason than to wring more special favors out of Congress for the super wealthy.
