Cantor: We Won’t Shut Down Government

Friday, 29 Oct 2010 03:29 PM

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.

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.
