The Daily Caller's Alex Pappas has a preview of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's speech this afternoon. I'll be at the speech, so if you have any questions for Cantor, let me know:

The focus of this speech, the Republican majority leader made clear, would be on issues and problems that aren’t really at the forefront of debate, but which would show Republicans’ softer side at a time when things like the threat of sequestration and continuing resolutions seem to be dominating the political conversation.

In the days leading up to that major policy speech — scheduled for Tuesday at the American Enterprise Institute — Cantor aides revealed that the address, titled “Making Life Work,” will “focus on areas where Congress can help make life work for more people.”
