Cantor to Obama: First Dog Can Come to Negotiations

Thursday, 22 Dec 2011 02:43 PM

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is as frustrated as anyone about Congress' failure to pass an extension of the payroll tax cut.

And he was even more annoyed after seeing photos of President Barack Obama shopping with the First Dog, Bo, as negotiations on the Hill were unraveling earlier this week.  So he offered the president a chance to sit down and talk, and he could bring Bo, too.

"I saw the president out yesterday doing his Christmas shopping. I saw he brought his dog with him. You know, we're here. He could bring his dog up here. We are pet friendly. You know, again, it will not take a long time," Cantor said. "We could probably resolve the differences within an hour."

He thinks the negotiations would be a simple matter.

"Frankly, given where the parties are, there's not a big difference between our positions," Cantor said this morning. "It all comes down to [how it's] paid for, it's the budgetary impact of the extension of this tax holiday."
