If you visit the link to Eric Cantor’s website, it used to show you a link to his record. Not any more. If you go to http://cantor.house.gov/legislative-work/voting-record all you see id:

And there is a reason Cantor is hiding his votes.
He is not a Conservative as he claims. He is a far left Liberal closer to Democrats than he is to true Conservatives. Or even the mainstream Republicans.
This is an amazing graphic. It plots legislation based on the content of each bill. As you can see, Eric Cantor is NOT a Conservative. This is a screen shot of an interactive graphic located at GovTrack.US. On the Gov Track site, the dots are interactive so you can hover your mouse pointer over the dots to see the name of the legislator represented.
So while Eric Cantor claims to be a Conservative, his legislation tells another tale. Cantor is represented by the large triangle and the only dots to the left of his that are not Blue – include Speaker Boehner.
Some other interesting statistics on the self proclaimed Conservative Cantor from the Gov Track site:
- Cantor received ZERO POINTS for Government Transparency.
- Top “Do Nothing” congressman. Cantor introduced 0 bills and resolutions in 2013 that got a committee vote sending it to the floor for further consideration.
- 0 of Cantor’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the Senate. (Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.)
- Cantor introduced 0 bills that became law in 2013. Keep in mind that it takes a law to repeal a law.
- Eric Cantor Refuses to answer Project Vote Smart’s “Political Courage Test” on the issues. (Source)
- Eric Cantor, unknown to supporters of the Stock Act, sneaks language into the bill to allow his wife to commit insider trading without penalty.
Listen to Eric Cantor talk about how America needs to be able to trust it’s government and make sure that government officials can’t take advantage of privileged inside information at a press conference he called, expressing his outrage at the thought of any member of Congress making a profit based on information they have that others do not.
And now listen to the report when CNN busted Eric Cantor for changing the legislation to allow his wife and children to avoid reporting inside trad deals based on information that Eric Cantor gives them.
Now just how outraged can Cantor really be to exempt his wife from doing the same thing that even Martha Stewart went to jail for (such as it was)?
When Cantor entered Congress he was making about $100,000 per year between his Law Firm (Cantor and Cantor) and his pay as a State Legislator.
So with Cantor making up the rules to enrich himself on the record, how has he done financially during the recession that won’t end?
Pretty damn well according to Open Secrets:
So, do you think Eric Cantor is looking out for you?
Eric Cantor is draining the system for all he can. It is too easy to game the system when you are the one writing the rules. And Cantor’s wealth and deception demonstrate – he is not fit to lead and must be retired.
