Cantor Previews Speech on House GOP Goals

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will outline an ambitious blueprint spelling out the House Republican agenda on Tuesday, one that emphasizes education, innovation, simplifying the tax code and reforming immigration and labor laws.

According to excerpts of Cantor's speech provided to Yahoo News, the Virginia Republican is planning a wide-ranging address that promotes policies that work for the "most vulnerable" and boosts working and middle-class citizens. Reflected within the excerpts is a desire to put a personal face on politics, as opposed to one that dwells on numbers that tally up government spending and the size of the national debt.

"Our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self reliance, faith in the individual, trust in the family, and accountability in government. Our goal: To ensure every American have a fair shot at earning their success and achieving their dreams," Cantor will say.
