Dear Eric Cantor,

This is how a bill becomes a law...

Today, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said at a press conference that Republicans would consider the Government Shutdown Prevention Act on Friday. The bill would make H.R. 1 law if the Senate fails to pass a measure “before April 6” to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year. H.R. 1, which passed the House but has gone nowhere in the Senate, would fund the government through the end of September and seeks to cut $61 billion in spending.

Someone (where are you Boehner?) should've tapped him on the shoulder and reminded him that the House and the Senate both have to pass it, and the President has to sign it. I guess he thinks any two votes count. This is the guy who led the reading of the Constitution when the Republicans were sworn in as the majority in January. Gosh, he's young enough to have watched Schoolhouse Rock! This shouldn't be that hard, people.
