Eric Cantor and Me: As Different As Different Can Be

Eugene Robinson recently  offered an insightful response to Eric Cantor’s CNN interview, which I thought might interest you:

‘  “The issue I think that’s going to play out this election is that question of Warren Buffett’s secretary,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Wednesday on CNN. “We want her to make more money, we want her to have more hope for the future. . . . [But] this notion that somehow the income that Warren Buffett makes is the same as a wage income for his secretary, we know that’s not the same.”

‘ In other words, it’s not just that the rich are better than the rest of us but also that their money is better than our money.’  –

I thank Mr. Robinson for bringing this to my attention. This illustrates the difference between Republican House Leadership and President Obama’s supporters: To us, money is money, and people are people; one not better, nor more entitled than another. We picked this up concept from the following:

“WE believe these truths to be self evident, that all men ( and women)  are created equal…(Declaration of Independence of Thirteen Colonies, Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776)
