Cantor, Kyl Force Debt Talks to Leader Level

File Photo
After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (right) and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl left bipartisan debt talks Thursday, top leaders are primed to play a larger role in negotiations.

We left the meeting to find that Leader Cantor had walked out of meetings, Pelosi said. He said he has walked out of the meetings because Democrats want to raise taxes. Yes, we do want to remove tax subsidies for Big Oil. We want to remove tax breaks for corporations that send jobs overseas. That list goes on. I dont know that thats a reason to walk away from the table when we are trying to find a balanced approach.
