Wall Street could count on Eric Cantor to take its side in the U.S. Congress. It won’t have the same luck with a top lawmaker considering taking his place.
The congressional supercommittee faces a “daunting challenge” to meet its Nov. 23 deadline, Representative Jeb Hensarling of Texas, the panel’s Republican co-chairman, said today.
"It's disappointing so many Democrats, who voted for these provisions just four months ago, suddenly switched their votes in a transparent ploy to appease their far-left wing. They were for this bill before they were against it."
