House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement on the national unemployment report for November:
“Today’s jobs numbers are very encouraging. Yet, our nation needs even more robust and reliable job growth, which is why House Republicans have passed dozens of bills aimed towards that end. Senate Democrats and President Obama have opposed common-sense jobs bills, like the SKILLS Act, which would give people the training they need to find new and better-paying jobs in emerging fields. Nearly 150 House-passed bills are collecting dust in the Senate. It’s time for Senate Democrats to do their job, so we can help more Americans find a good-paying job.
"Some of these bills would help working parents find more flexible options, create energy jobs and lower energy costs, and stop Obamacare from reducing hours and eliminating jobs. Just this week, the House passed a patent reform bill that would encourage young entrepreneurs to innovate and create jobs. House Republicans are committed to helping people get good jobs, see an increase in their paychecks and have the opportunity to move up the ladder of success.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela:
“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of President Nelson Mandela. The world has lost an exceptional leader who made the world a better place by illuminating in his own nation the shining light of freedom. From prisoner to president, Mr. Mandela demonstrated a lifelong commitment to justice and human rights, and his legacy should serve as an example for all of us. My prayers are with Mr. Mandela’s family and the people of South Africa.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor today released the following statement in support of the Innovation Act. This bipartisan legislation takes steps toward combating the problem of abusive patent litigation which costs businesses tens of billions of dollars each year and limits innovation and job creation.
“The Innovation Act provides incentives for innovation so start-ups and young entrepreneurs can focus on advancements and new technology rather than costly and frivolous lawsuits. The lack of transparency in the current patent system and abusive patent litigation drain billions of dollars from our economy, stifle innovation, and limit job creation. I appreciate Chairman Goodlatte’s and the Judiciary Committee’s work on this bipartisan legislation that will return stability to the patent system and increase American job creation, ingenuity, and economic security.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor appeared on On The Record with Greta Van Susteren to talk about ObamaCare and the future of the Republican Party.
Republicans Have Patient-Centered Alternative To ObamaCare:
“The President knows we have ideas. In fact, go back to 2009 when the ObamaCare law was passed. All Republicans in the end voted against that bill, but we voted for our alternative. The alternative that we had even enjoyed a Congressional Budget Office score which said that our plan would actually lower the cost of premiums unlike ObamaCare.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor delivered the following remarks at House Republican Leadership's Weekly Press Conference:
"Last week, as working middle class families across this nation prepared for Thanksgiving, the Obama Administration tried to hide another unilateral one-year delay of ObamaCare.
