Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) responds to Obama’s scolding:
I was taken aback by the President’s angry reaction toward the marked up bill I brought to our meeting. The White House said that the Senate bill was the basis for his plan, so we wanted to have it as a reference — that’s what people who are prepared do. But if the President is tired of looking at the 2700 page Reid/Pelosi bill, I can understand that and assure him that the American people are too. That’s why he should stop trying to force it through Congress and focus on a more incremental approach that lowers costs.
