David Shuster takes Eric Cantor to task for getting his facts wrong during his interview on Meet the Press.

There is nothing in any bill about a train to Las Vegas. The stimulus bill does contain $8 billion for high speed rail projects but the entire pot of money goes to the Dept. of Transportation. The Secretary Ray LaHood, a Republican will decide how to spend the money. But there is nothing in the bill or any other referring to any particular train project or idea.

Congressman Cantor produced another apparent whopper while criticizing the budget. He said Republicans will offer an alternative.


Wow! The Republicans are going to produce their own budget proposal except watch Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell on ABC's This Week.


Oh those silly little procedures like producing an alternative budget. Clearly Senate Republicans are not interested in producing an alternative budget despite Congressman Cantor's claim.

Congressman Cantor when you highlight honesty and are dishonest in the very same interview that's hypocrisy, and it's wrong.
