House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., isn’t pleased with the Senate’s slow pace to address the spending bill passed by the House. So he said Thursday that House Republicans will continue to cut spending to the tune of $2 billion a week, through two-week spending bills, until the Senate acts on a budget for the rest of fiscal 2011, The Hill reports.
