Eric Cantor went to the White house on day three of President Obama's presidency. At the time, Obama and Democrats had total control of the White House, Senate and House. Cantor tried to share ideas with President Obama for stimulating the economy and creating jobs. When Cantor pushed for small business tax-cuts, President Obama said,
"Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won."Instead of business tax cuts that would have actually stimulated the economy, we got the failed Porkulus bill that only stimulated unions and other democratic special interest groups. Unemployment has skyrocketed to 9.5% since the Stimulus was passed and even President Obama is indirectly admitting Democrats made a mistake. Now a Republican and Tea Party Tsunami is about to wash control of the House, and perhaps the Senate, from Democrats hands. President Obama is "troubled" to hear Republicans aren't going to be in a compromising mood.
In his weekly address Saturday, Obama called recent comments made by two Republican leaders “troubling.”
He pointed out comments made by House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), who said this week that “this is not the time for compromise.”...
"Whatever the outcome on Tuesday, we need to come together to help put people who are still looking for jobs back to work," Obama said.
Go pound sand President Obama.
