Cantor: Tea Party is GOP’s ‘surge protector’ against big government

The Hill reports:

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) credited Tea Party activists with refocusing GOP attention on an expanding federal government, calling the grassroots movement a “surge protector.”

Speaking at an event in San Diego, Calif., on Monday, Cantor said that Tea Party voters propelled Republicans to majority status in the House last year, as a way to prevent the “surge” of federal government under a Democratic-controlled White House and Congress.

“The reality is: taxed enough already,” Cantor told an audience of employees at Qualcomm, which he dubbed one of the nation’s “innovation anchors.”

    It is certainly best for the Republicans to try and incorporate the Tea Party. It will be difficult to maintain the values, but it will be for the best in the long-run. It looks like Cantor is willing to make the transition.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
