Why? Because Republicans aren’t willing to budge on ending tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

Kevin –

News just broke that Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor quit negotiating and walked out of critical budget talks with House Democratic Leaders and Vice President Biden.

Why? Because Republicans aren’t willing to budge on ending tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

Eric Cantor is willing to sabotage our economy just to provide more red meat to the Tea Party and protect Republicans and their secret anonymous Koch Brothers backed billionaire donors.

This is all part of a political stunt that they think will help them win in 2012. But we can fight back. We only have days left before the mid-year FEC reporting deadline to prove grassroots Democrats have the momentum to win in 2012.

Republicans are playing with fire. By walking away, Cantor showed Republicans are willing to risk economic disaster to protect taxpayer giveaways for Big Oil and more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

The Republicans are so committed to protecting millionaires and billionaires that Speaker Boehner announced he’s personally pledging $1 million to our competitors in the House, the National Republican Congressional Committee.

We’re in a virtual dead heat for the year-to-date fundraising totals with House Republicans. So it’s absolutely critical Democrats show the media and our opponents that we are unified and have the grassroots strength to capture the Majority by the mid-year fundraising deadline.

Let’s prove we have what it takes — and show Eric Cantor that his stunt will cost House Republicans.
