*Correction and Apology to Eric Cantor*
After hearing Eric Cantor's remarks yesterday in his district after the 5.8 earthquake I felt he was willing to find money for his own district even though he wasn't willing to find money without cuts for Joplin. Today, Eric Cantor made it perfectly clear that there will be no help for the people of his district without budget cuts someplace else. His spokesperson, Laena Fallon made this statement:
"We aren't going to speculate on damage before it happens, period. But, as you know, Eric has consistently said that additional funds for federal disaster relief ought to be offset with spending cuts."I apologize to Eric Cantor for calling him a hypocrite. Clearly, Eric Cantor is as heartless and uncaring about the people in his own district as he is of the people of Joplin, Mo.
