Cantor’s Debt Doc

Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.), the House GOP whip, has released a 13-minute video/mini-documentary about President Obama and the national debt:

“To be clear, this is not a typical web video — this is an in-depth analysis of the impact of the national debt upon our nation’s future and the government’s actions over the past two years,” Cantor says in a statement. “America is at a critical crossroads, and the path we take will determine the kind of country we want to be. Our country is facing serious challenges; this video is a serious and substantive look at the crisis of generational debt being created by government today.”

Cantor’s video is part of his YouCut initiative. NRO spoke with Cantor about the project in May.
