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.

cantor, budget, spending, cuts"We would encourage the Senate and Majority Leader Reid to act so that we can move forward, and until then, Mr. Speaker, I would say to my friend from Maryland that I would expect the House to continue its process of cutting $2 billion a week until we can see where the gentleman's caucus and then the Democratic Leader in the Senate is," Cantor told House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer in a speech on the House floor.
