De Facto Speaker

Eric Cantor, apparently, is the de facto Speaker of the House of Representatives, although he is actually the majority leader of the Republicans in the House. He leads the pack of extremists that wants to cut every program that helps the poor, and quite a few for the middle class; in other words, break the New Deal & the Great Society while not even so much as wanting to raise revenue by cutting or eliminating mortgage deductions for vacation homes, let alone letting the Bush II tax breaks for billionaires and millionaires expire. A lot of these extremists strut like Christians, believe it or not, while at the same time they are in the process of effectively snatching infant formula from many mothers with babies. Cantor, who wants to be the real Speaker someday, thinks it's good politics for the House not to raise the debt limit and cause an economic catastrophe, which he thinks would be blamed on President Obama, who by the way has agreed to most of the spending cuts that the extremists want, actually overcompromising. The president should not yield to Cantor, but he should educate the people more that it is the Congress that controls the purse strings, and all he can do is sign or reject what they send him. Not even FOX propagandists could make the de facto Speaker look good if the nation defaults on its bills.
