GOP aborts House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's plan for revive Republican brand
On Tuesday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor kicked off yet another one of his efforts to reinvent the Republican Party, telling fellow Republicans that budget issues are important, but that it is time for the GOP to start talking about other things.
I'd like to focus our attention on what lies beyond these fiscal debates. Over the next two years, the House Majority will pursue an agenda based on a shared vision of creating the conditions for health, happiness and prosperity for more Americans and their families. And to restrain Washington from interfering in those pursuits.
That actually made some sense: Republicans really do need to move on from being the party that doesn't want to do anything but cut spending. But that was Tuesday. Now it's Wednesday and:
Today, the House will vote to require the President to put forward his plan to balance the budget. #RequireAPlan

Heckuva rebirth you got going on there, Eric. It was nice while it lasted, I guess.
