Eric Cantor sells America short
Will Rep. Cantor Rake in Massive Windfall if Government Defaults?
When Republicans walked out of budget talks last week, short-circuiting efforts to ensure the federal government does not default on its loans, the Republicans’ chief budget negotiator, Eric Cantor, led the way. Now in a stunning revelation, Salon reports that Cantor may have a vested interest in making sure the government defaults on its loans–he stands to gain substantial sums of money if it does.
So, will anyone call for Cantor to divest himself of this stock? Pelosi? Obama? Anyone? Anyone?
