WASHINGTON D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding proposed spending cuts:
"I applaud the Republican Study Committee for proposing cuts in federal spending, and I look forward to the discussion on reducing spending that our country so desperately needs to have. As promised, we will have an open process when it comes to spending bills. I look forward to these cuts and others being brought to the floor for an up-or-down vote during consideration of the CR, and I support that effort.
“I challenge Leader Reid and Senate Democrats to consider putting forward their own spending cuts. The House Republican Majority is leading the cut and grow charge and it is time for the Senate Majority to get serious about tackling our debt and reducing out of control spending.”
