Eric Cantor: Let’s not add to deficit to rebuild Joplin
The death toll of the Joplin tornado has risen to 122. It was the deadliest tornado that the country has endured in 60 years, and thousands of people are homeless. It’s a complete mess, and it will no doubt cost tens of millions of dollars to get the town of 50,000 back to normal.
President Obama, who was out of the country at the time of the disaster, told victims, “The American people are by your side.” And, “We’re going to stay there until every home is repaired, until every
neighborhood is rebuilt, until every business is back on its feet.” But House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says it’s time for penny-pinching!
