Eric Cantor’s 22-page game plan on how to change Congress

Cantor's game plan is basically a procedural document that will make the House more attentive to the people's business and insure that earmarks are eliminated, spending is curtailed, oversight is effective and bills are Constitutional. The plan is an interesting look at the inter-workings of the House of Representatives.

Virginia Republican Eric Cantor’s official announcement of his run for House majority leader came with a twist: a 22-page game plan on how to change Congress.

Cantor, currently the GOP whip, began calling colleagues to shore up his support and wrote a letter promising to change Congress – saying he wants to “drain the swamp rather than learning to swim with the alligators.”

The document is entitled “Delivering on Our Commitment” and promises a broad range of sweeping initiatives ranging from spending cuts to bringing each item of the Pledge to America to the floor for a vote. It’s a bold plan that shows Cantor wants to be taken as a serious House reformer and policy leader as he ascends to the no. 2 slot in the new GOP hierarchy.
