Republican House leader Eric Cantor’s Hatred Of Government Is More Important Than The Safety Of His Constituents

So you know how back in March, following that devastating earthquakes that hit Japan, John Boehnor’s slimy elf-like errand boy, Eric Cantor, had the gall to defend Republican plans to cut funding from the USGS and warning systems to help in case of a disaster?

Well, it turns out the epicenter of the aberrant 5.9 magnitude earthquake that slammed across the east coast yesterday is located squarely in Rep. Cantor’s seventh congressional district. Worse yet, the Anna 1 and 2 nuclear power plants are also located in the Congressman’s district.

It seems the North Anna nuclear power station in the middle of Cantor’s district is only built to withstand a 5.9-6.1 magnitude earthquake and has no seismographs due to budget cuts in the 1990s. But Eric Cantor wants to defund the agency that monitors quake activity because, well…it makes the bottom line of billionaire industrialists and Teabagger Republican sugar daddies, David and Charles Koch, look good.
