Cantor Looks Beyond Budget Battles

After lying low for several months, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) "is reasserting his presence in the Capitol, even as Speaker John A. Boehner continues his struggles to maintain Republican unity. In the coming weeks, the majority leader plans to lay out a second, softer track for his party beyond the constant cycle of budget showdowns and deficit talks," the New York Times reports.

"Notably, that track will include a new push for private-school vouchers for underprivileged children, health care options beyond the old fight over the president's health care law, new work force training initiatives and a renewed push for science, technology and engineering visas for would-be immigrants."
