Cantor Predicts ‘Strong Vote’

From Politico:

GOP leaders are also showing more public confidence. In an interview with POLITICO Thursday, Cantor predicted a “strong vote in the House,” and said Senate Majority Leader Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) hasn’t passed a bill yet.

“After today, Harry Reid is going to have two bills,” Cantor said. “He’s going to have the bill that we moved out which is our optimum cut, cap and balance and now he’ll have another bill, which is a compromise bill. There are things in it that he likes and the ball will be in his court at that point.”

Cantor added: “I think we’ll get the votes.”
