Check out this video (courtesy of Rebuild the Dream’s Richmond YouTube channel) of several unemployed residents of the 7th Congressional District of Virginia – Eric Can’tor’s constituents, in other words – explain their situation, and wonder why they can’t get a meeting with Can’tor. As the highly astute and articulate woman at the end of the video says to the dismissive Can’tor staffer:
We knew there was one thing to find in the seventh district of Virginia, that’s jobs. And now we know the second one is Eric Cantor.
Of course, I’m sure Can’tor’s busy doing important work, like…uh…scrambling back from Israel to check out the earthquake. Not that he’ll do anything about the earthquake, of course (see here for more on that issue), other than cutting funding for monitoring and dealing with earthquakes. But one thing’s for sure: no matter what, Eric Can’tor’s far, far too busy to meet with his own constituents, unless of course they happen to be wealthy, powerful, well-connected, or otherwise NOT like the unemployed people in the video above.
