Rep. Eric Cantor

CantorChief Deputy Whip, Representitive Eric Cantor of Virginia’s 7th district will be joining The Andrew Wilkow Show today(1/18) in the 3rd hour of the show (2pm EST). He will discuss recent legislation he has proposed along with former POW, Representitive Sam Johnson which will keep house Democrats from cutting off funding for American troops in Iraq.

His statement about the proposed legislation:

“The purpose of this legislation is to assure our men and women in Iraq that Congress and America support them.  As a nation, we are debating the future of our involvement in Iraq; this debate is necessary and good.  However, our troops and the dollars that fund them should not be used to play politics during that debate.  Playing politics with our nation’s purse strings will only hurt our troops and encourage the terrorists who want to harm them.

“We must not forget that we are at war with an irreconcilable wing of Islam and it is imperative for the security of the Middle East and America that we succeed against the terrorists.”

    How did this guy vote on giving armor and ammo to the troops? Did he support the Bush administration’s call to give the troops no armor and inadequate ammo, or did he oppose the president?
