The public will know full well who is to blame if a budget accord isn’t reached by April 8, causing the government to shut down, says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, The Hill reports. It’s Democrats.

Their failure to come up with a viable spending plan is the cause, he says. "In the scope of our debt crisis, if Senator [Harry] Reid and Senator [Charles] Schumer force the government to partially shut down over [the GOP's] sensible spending cuts, Americans will hold them accountable," Cantor said in a statement Monday.

"The Reid/Schumer leadership team has failed to take our fiscal crisis seriously, as members of their own Democratic caucus have pointed out. Our federal government borrows nearly 40 cents of each dollar it spends, yet Senate Democrats want to keep spending money that we don't have."
