"And basically, the sense of the 'Pledge to America' is this: Republicans understand when we were in charge, we got fired in '06. We spent too much money. We defied the trust that the people had put in us. And we know that there is a better way."
"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."Eric Cantor on William Shakespeare
"For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth."Eric Cantor on Bo Bennett
"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool."Eric Cantor on Stephen King
"Learning to trust is one of life's most difficult tasks."Eric Cantor on Isaac Watts
"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."Eric Cantor on Golda Meir
"I am hopeful for the American people that we can actually improve the outlook for bringing down costs in health care."
"We've had Town Hall meetings, we've witnessed election after election, in which the American people have taken a position on the President's health care bill. And the bottom line is the people don't like this bill. They don't want it."
"You know, there are people making a lot of money in this country who can actually afford their own health care. We are in a situation where we got a safety net in place in this country for people who frankly don't need one. We got to focus on making sure we got a safety net for those who actually need it."
"We believe that if you put in place the mechanisms that allow for personal choice as far as Medicare is concerned, as well as the programs in Medicaid, that we can actually get to a better result and do what most Americans are learning how to do, which is to do more with less."
"Again, the American people expect us to do what they are doing. It's tightening the belt, it's learning how to do more with less. That's a reality today, and we've got to do that in order to get the private sector growing."
