WASHINGTON – A Republican leader says that if Democrats keep Rep. Nancy Pelosi as their party chief in the House, then "it's almost as if they didn't get the message."
Republicans dumped Democrats from their majority in Tuesday's elections — and that means Pelosi won't be speaker in the new Congress next year.
Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, who's in line to be the No. 2 House Republican, says GOP lawmakers aren't willing to work with President Barack Obama on what Cantor calls an "expansive, liberal agenda" the White House has pushed for two years.
Cantor tells "Fox News Sunday" that the Republican-led House will cut spending and will force fiscal discipline.
