GOP House leadership rejects Reid's spending proposal

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Tuesday blasted a proposal from Democrats to keep the government running for another 30 days at current spending levels.

Cantor challenged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "to identify a single cut" he would make to federal spending. 

"While Leader Reid claims that his plan cuts spending, all it does is lock in the status quo spending levels which increased 24 percent over the past two years," Cantor said. "I challenge him to identify a single cut from current spending levels included in his plan."

“The short-term CR plan that Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid announced today shows — yet again — that he is not serious about cutting spending and getting our fiscal house in order," Cantor said.

Reid's bill would fund the government at current levels for 30 days after the continuing resolution expires March 4.
