What if Eric says fuck it allows votes on senate bills

What has he got to lose? He has 5 months left, I don't see him giving it up before his term is over.

1. He can do anything he wants

 

play loose cannon, and be spiteful towards the Republican Party. I expect him to be. It's going to be a delicious time to be a Dem in the House

2. Since when did he ever care about anyone but himself in the first place?

 

He can rot in Hell. One piss poor human being out of office, replaced by a wackadoodle that will lose them millions of votes.

3. It will be interesting to see if he sticks it to the tea baggers

or if he goes out like a good foot soldier because he might be rewarded with a lucrative job after he leaves office.

5. I'm sure he has his sinecure all lined up

I'd bet his staff is researching the most appropriate time for Cantor to resign his seat and get on with making some real coin. The fly in Cantor's ointment is that if there's any discretion left to the governor, it will be a Democrat making the call.

4. If the price is right, he will pass immigration reform.

6. Why would he implement a scorched earth policy on GOP?

 

He can run in another district. He can run statewide. He can be a lobbyist. He still has support of traditional Chamber of Commerce republicans and corporate donors. Why would he burn his bridges?

7. Isn't Cantor a House member?

He isn't in any position to do anything in the Senate. Or am I missing something here.

10. the op means the house versions of the senate bills

 

so they can make it to the white house and get signed by the pres . because that is what is holding up the bills from being passed right now.

11. Cantor can bring the senate bills up to the house

but I agree he probably won't do it because it will burn the rest of them running in 2014 to force them into a vote

13. Agreed. GOP reps are terrified now and aren't going to follow someone who just lost

to the forces they are afraid of.
