Mr. Dayspring said Mr. Cantor and fellow Republicans have tried to bring $85 billion in potential spending cuts to the floor, and each time they've been blocked.
"Though there was bipartisan disagreement on the only measure that Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi has allowed the House to consider, President Obama and his party operate under the flawed notion that because the first spending cut failed to achieve majority support, any effort to move the remaining 70 spending cuts should be abandoned," said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia. "That's hogwash. In fact, that's how the culture of spending in Washington lives, breathes and grows, and the American people have had enough of it."
