I don't think this is such a surprise! I think this is how the cookie crumbles. These days. Eric Cantor went to Washington in 2001. That was the last year for a balance budget. From 2002 on everything went on the credit card and the Republicans fought to maintain tax cuts, corporate welfare, well to be short with it. The Jude Wanniski plan for economic development and our future. The fact that he lost by so few votes leads me to believe it was just that. He went there promising the same things that Congressman King promised when he went there. He has not delivered. Although it is scary that we have another Kock brothers Kool-Aid professor and probably climate denier heading for Congress. This gives me hope that we can flip the Iowa fourth district from red to blue.
