Leader Cantor Applauds Passage Of Israel Resolution

Posted by Nick Marcelli on July 11, 2014

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement following House passage of H.

There is no justification for Hamas' violent assault on Israel, which withdrew completely from Gaza in 2005.

But to me, the problems that people are facing in this country are a lot greater than any kind of setback -- political setback, personal setbacks I've got. So I really am very focused on continuing on the mission that I've tried to be about here in Washington. It's those reform conservative solutions that actually can be applied to people's problems in the working middle class of this country, the poor, and for everyone."
