Despite any assertions to the contrary, Eric Cantor has served District 7 well. He also has seniority in the US House and that is very important for our District and for our state.

While I believe he is a bit divisive, and not what we need right now. A divided government can get things done for the people, better than one part in control of all branches.

JoAnna Hickman in the Central Virginian letter to the editor on October 14, 2010, wrote "Mr. Cantor voted NO to recent Small Business Jobs Act that provided resources to small businesses to create jobs. He voted NO on on the Credit Card Reform Act which limited unjustified interest rate increases by banks. He voted NO on Financial Reform Bill that restructured regulation of Wall Street to prevent another financial meltdown and created a consumer protection agency. He voted NO on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which provided money to states (including VA)for infrastructure projects like waste water treatment, energy efficiency projects, and to save jobs of teachers, Firefighters and policemen.
Mr. Cantor has publicly declared that he will vote NO on tax cut for the middle class if it does not include tax cuts for those making over $250,000... I doubt many people who live here know these wealthy people whose interests Mr. Cantor is protecting.
Mr. Cantor has not had his stamp on any significant piece of legislation during this term. He did however vote YES for the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy in 2001 which left the country with a $480 billion deficit and economic policies which nearly drove this country into another Great Depression....
It's time to send Mr. Cantor home and elect someone who will look after the interests of the hard-working people of the 7th Idstrict."

Republicans are anti-American. Jefferson would shudder at the arguments put forth by tea party bigots. Bayne listed as Independent is a joke also. He either should be Tea party or Republican.

In the upcoming election on November 2, there is an alternative to the Republican Candidate, Eric Cantor, and Democratic Candidate, Rick Waugh. His name is Floyd Bayne. I met Mr. Bayne several weeks ago at a rally, and walked away with hope. This year, Mr. Bayne has my vote. I've voted Republican all my life, but with the mood of this country, it is time for REAL change.

I believe this is the election where we have to send a message to Washington. Cantor has had 10 years to prove himself as a viable representative for the 7th District. Cantor is about NATIONAL politics - not Virginia. He makes time to appear on the Daily Show, and other national news outlets, but won't stay in Virginia to debate Waugh or Bayne. He feels the people already knows where he stands. The arrogance. Rick Waugh, on the other hand believes government should support everyone with our tax money. He backs Obama's policies, which continue to negatively impact Virgnia and the country. Enough of the status quo. Let's elect people to our Congress that will bring respect back to that high office and work for the people - not for themselves.

Cantor is out of touch with reality and his District. He thinks that it is HIS District and he can do whatever he wants to do so he crisscrosses the country flying, wining sli...ck, elitist, Gucci wearing, electric Toyota Prius driving, Washington insider who has been in D.C., for far too long, dining, picking up checks and then distributing them to other Republican politicians who too long who has been bought, sold and paid for my special interest groups. His constituents are his DONORS and they know where he stands- He stands for whatever his benefactors want him to stand for... Whenever I run into a Cantor supporter and ask them for one single thing he has done after the first 10 years they can't do it! Try it yourself!!

Cantor has a good thing going for him. He raises millions of dollars and disburses them to other Republican candidates around the nation to curry favor and to keep them dependent on him, so that they fall into line like a bunch of sheep. Who gives him all that money?? Tobacco, Corporations, Israeli Lobbyists, Banks and Financial Institutions such as Goldman Sachs that receive TARP bailouts and other forms of corporate welfare. What do the people of his District get?? For-show job fairs with no actual jobs, trillions of dollars in debt, wars in the middle east, millions and millions of dollars in support for Israel, yet he refuses to even debate other candidates because he is content to let his record talk for itself.
Well his record reflects:
• being on the wrong side of virtually every vote in the last 10 years.
• him being a lapdog for the Bush-Cheney administration which took us from a budget surplus to trillions of dollars in debt after 8 years of free spending, giving away our money and kids futures.
• his wealth increasing from over 1 million dollars to over 7 million dollars.
• record setting corporate salaries and bonuses and the creation of ZERO jobs.
• millions of record foreclosures (He has a real estate Masters degree in Real Estate from Columbia University).
• voting for TARP which bailed out his wife's employer
• he would rather write a book and promote it and advance his personal interests and agenda than try to assist his constituents during the worse economic crisis since the great depression.
• voting to kill 2 of middle class America's largest employers and a source of national pride (GM and Chrysler).
• Refusing to use his leadership position to aid unemployed and jobless Americans while supporting outsourcing of those same lost jobs.
• Voting against any healthcare reform and allowing his constituents and Americans to go bankrupt because of health care costs.
Find out more at NOCANTOR.COM . This November vote for Rick Waugh!! Vote for America! Vote against the Corporate Tool!!! Just don’t vote for 10 years of failure, incompetence, personal advancement and flip flopping arrogance. advancement, and flip flopping arrogance. advancement, and flip flopping arrogance.

He is owned by international lobbyists and corporate interests and has never done and will never do anything for his constituents. Why do you think he raises so much money? He worst congressman EVER! Is completely owned by special interest groups and is a shadow of things to come unless the voters wake up!

Cantor does not represent us ordinary folks -- he represents bankers, moguls and other elitists.

Rick Waugh is a regular guy, and I like that. WE have enough Business as usual party bosses like Eric Cantor cosying up to mega corporations and their lobbyists while average citizens and small and medium business owners like me get stuck with the bill.
