Republicans have learned a lot since the last time they took the House back from the Democrats – in 1994. Last time around their budget differences with President Bill Clinton led to a shutdown of the government, and Republicans took the blame. But this time around, a Republican House won’t shut down the government even if President Barack Obama vetoes spending bills next year, according to House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Politico reports
“I don’t think this country is desirous of seeing a government that is shut down,” he told reporters on a conference call. “People want to see a government that does what people expect it to do, which is to limit it in scope and reduce spending.”
Hopefully Obama will live up to his promise to cut spending, Cantor says. “The people expect leadership that will deliver results. People want to see results. They want to get back to work. And hopefully we can work to that end together,” he said.
