Republican Says Obama's $3.6 Trillion Budget Is Out of the Mainstream
March 25, 2009 - 7:57 AM<br />
House Minority Whip Eric Cantor asserted that the $3.6 trillion spending blueprint that Obama will personally push in a visit to Capitol Hill later Wednesday would burden future generations with staggering debts.
Interviewed on NBC's "Today" show, the Virginia Republican said he thought the country got a firsthand look Tuesday night as Obama sought to "defend a budget that is so far out of the mainstream" that significant members of his own party are wary of it.
