House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a leading proponent of school choice, addressed education, health care and other pressing national issues in the House Republican Party’s four-point policy agenda as featured speaker at the Daemen College Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series held March 10.
Introduced by Congressman Chris Collins, Cantor emphasized an “American That Works” plan in response to major challenges being faced today largely by the middle class.
“Many have lost faith in our nation and in the American dream. The American people deserve better and that’s why the House Republican leadership’s number one issue is to restore an America that works,” said Cantor, a six-term Virginia congressman.
Cantor pointed to the “middle-class squeeze” brought on by minimal wage growth and rising costs in making it harder for middle-class families to make ends meet. “Three out of four Americans are living paycheck to paycheck,” he said.
