GOP: We’ll Work With Obama on Jobs

House majority leader Eric Cantor said Thursday that he hopes the GOP can work with President Obama to create more jobs, and he suggested three areas of potential compromise. Cantor said that an extension of the payroll tax holiday for the middle class, infrastructure spending, and unemployment benefits might be three areas of possible agreement. However, he added that he hopes Obama will not accuse the Republicans of putting party before country if they do not agree with all of his ideas. “I’m hopeful he will respect that we love this country, too,” he said.
