Eric Cantor

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

The Establishment GOP Is Committing Suicide By Lie

If the Capitol Hill Republican establishment can’t pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that they already passed in 2015, then it is time for conservatives to recognize this is no longer a family disagreement, take the gloves off and declare war on those who reneged on their 2015 vote.

Midterm Elections: Is The GOP Finally Getting It? Nope

Scalise Lets GOP-Estab. Lobbyist Pick Staff

Streiff, Red State

Steve Scalise made a big mistake in letting GOP-E lobbyist John Feehery pick his staff. People are policy. You can’t carry out a conservative agenda opposed to crony capitalism if you allow a DC lobbyist who outwardly disdains everything from cutting goverment waste to homeschooling pick your staff.

Eric Cantor Abandons Constituents; Races to Big Money

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

For Cantor, quitting early doesn’t look good. Cantor gave up his majority leader job July 31, a sensible move, as a lame-duck. But then he immediately announced he wouldn’t serve as a rank-and-file member. It confirms the grassroots skepticism about Congress being full of self-dealers.

House GOP Leaders' Plan Is Amnesty And We Can Prove It

The House GOP leadership bill would allow Obama to "parole" millions of illegal aliens who would then gain permanent legal resident status after a year and who could then apply for U.S. citizenship after five years. UPDATED: In unprecedented win for grassroots, late Friday the House passed conservative border bills.

To tea party R's, Ray Allen is thwarting Dave Brat’s ascent. They blame Allen & other Cantorites for diverting from the 7th District GOP treasury to nat'l GOP groups almost $400k that could've stayed in the district, underwriting a locally run voter-mobilization effort for Brat. He’ll get only $5,000.

Cantor Backers Bleed VA07 Dist. GOP Bank Account

Could Kevin McCarthy Be A Great Majority Leader?

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

The number one thing conservatives have lacked in my 53 years of being involved in the conservative movement at the national level is strong, articulate, effective leadership. Kevin McCarthy has the right instincts and the right tools, if he would turn them toward the right target, and stand and fight for the conservative principles that brought him into the Republican Party he could be a great House Majority Leader.

Boehner to Stay On As Speaker?

Conservatives: Let’s Not Get Too Cocky

Dave Brat didn't beat Eric Cantor through osmosis; he won through hard work. The only way to replicate his victory is to buckle down and knock on doors, make phone calls, send email, post on social media and sell our conservative candidates in every forum we can find.
