Cantor Talks Repeal

Last night, Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.), the House GOP whip, sat down for an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News. The topic: repealing Obamacare.

“We’re going to do everything we can to repeal the bill, to delay the bill, to defund the bill, to do all of the above,” Cantor pledged. Ingraham pressed: Will he immediately bring a repeal bill to the floor if Republicans win the House? “Absolutely,” Cantor said. “We’re going to put a bill on the floor if I’m in a position to do it — you better believe it.”
