According to a press statement released Wednesday by the University of Michigan, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Feb. 2 will advocate for smaller government and discuss the problems and challenges the country faces in a speech to the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.

According to the press statement:

“Cantor will discuss how the new Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives plans to tackle challenges. He also will argue that America needs a leaner, smarter and more efficient government that produces results by promoting a culture of opportunity, responsibility and success.

“The speech also will detail the Republican legislative strategy of cutting spending and needless regulation, and growing jobs and the economy. In addition, Cantor will touch on how his party intends to deal with President Obama: areas where they will work with him, and areas where they will provide a check and balance on his policies.”
