Representative Eric Cantor decided to conduct American Foreign policy. According to Politico
“Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington,” the readout continued. “He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”
Cantor decided to walk back the comment through a spokesperson today claiming he would be a check to the administration and not specifically a check relative to US/Israeli relations. Of course Republicans have always been critical when Democrats made what they believed were dabbles into foreign policy issues.
Cantor must remember the constitutional powers given Congress versus the Executive. It is rather amusing that those who claim they are such constitutionalists are the ones constantly wanting to trump the Constitution.
One could itemize issue after issue where Republicans are intent on circumventing the Constitution. These are the same guys who have no problem discriminating against gays. Is that constitutional? Of course it is absolutely not. They want to take away freedoms from the population at large by reinstituting appointment of senators not directly by popular vote but by state houses by repealing the 17th amendment to the Constitution.
America must understands their ulterior motive is the continued march to a plutocracy where it’s not the people that elect those that pass laws, but a system that can be controlled by a few. Republicans know that a changing demographic and an educated electorate do not favor their policies that are an affront to the middleclass.
