Reps. Eric CantorEric Ivan CantorGOP sees McCarthy moving up — if GOP loses the House Feehery: The governing party 'Release the memo' — let's stop pretending that Democrats are the defenders of the FBI MORE (R-Va.) and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) – the House majority leader and minority whip, respectively – are also teaming up with Coburn in a bipartisan and bicameral effort to examine government waste.
