Following Eric Cantor’s derogatory remarks about pro-freedom members of the House of Representatives, FreedomWorks National Director of Grassroots Noah Wall commented:
"Remember when Eric Cantor was the next in line for the speakership? Cantor’s criticism of House conservatives rings hollow. Protecting vocal minorities is what America is all about, and Thomas Jefferson wrote the House rules to reflect that."
"The House Freedom Caucus and other conservative members believe Republicans should govern by their campaign pledges to limit government and cut spending. If Cantor had followed through on those pledges and paid attention to his constituents rather than his pals on K Street, he wouldn’t have been defeated last year."
