WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) tonight released the following statement after the Democratic Senate rejected President Obama’s $447 billion jobs package.

“The Senate’s rejection of the President's jobs bill proves once and for all that there isn’t sufficient support on either side of the aisle for his all-or-nothing approach. Since the President presented his plan to Congress, House Republicans have made clear that we are ready to work on areas of commonality where we can get the economy going and produce results. With millions of people out of work, I hope that the President will put the brakes on his campaign-style speeches and work with Congress on areas where there is bipartisan support to spur economic growth and get people back to work.”
