Here are some of the "differences" between Eric and Dave ...
-- Eric Cantor was the Tea Party guy, and Dave Brat is the even MORE Tea Party guy, this time around.
Dave Brat for Congress -- 7th District of Virginia
About Dave -- the Issues
Debt Limit / Fiscal ResponsibilityDave, as an Economist, believes that addressing our National Debt is a top priority. Dave is committed to real spending cuts in the near term and to reducing the debt burden on our future generations.
Since Congressman Cantor was elected in 2001, he has voted to raise the debt limit ten times. He also voted for the Ryan-Murray budget which eliminated the spending caps imposed by the sequester. They were the only spending cuts Republicans achieved in the last five years. (CRS Report 10/15/13)

Illegal Immigration / Amnesty
Dave believes that we need to secure the border before addressing immigration reform. Dave is opposed to amnesty.
Eric Cantor was the chief architect behind the ‘Kids Act’ which would have provided amnesty to most illegal immigrants under the age of 30. Cantor cited immigration reform as a “top priority” in 2014.
Size of Government
Dave understands that the federal government has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. He will advocate for conservative reform that will empower people not government.
Eric Cantor has been a consistent supporter of big government. He voted for Medicare Part D (H.R. 1, 11/22/03), No Child Left Behind (H.R. 1, 5/23/01), the Farm Bill (H.R. 2642), and voted to undo reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program (H.R. 3370, 3/4/14)
Dave will not vote for a bill that fully funds Obamacare. He will fight to repeal and replace Obamacare with free market solutions that will improve access to care and lower health care costs.
Eric Cantor voted to fully fund Obamacare (H.R. 2775, 10/16/13). He has not accomplished any meaningful reforms to a law that has little public support, although he has scheduled over 40 meaningless procedural votes so that House members could pretend to be on the record opposing Obamacare.
One more BIG difference between Dave and Eric:
Mr. Cantor, considered the leading candidate to be the next House speaker, lost to David Brat, a college economics professor, by 11 points, 56% to 45%, in a tally by the Associated Press.
SO, if you want a road-map for how to get the Do-Nothing Republicans out of the House
-- just follow Dave ...
And then -- just defeat Dave in November. As just another Cruz-wanta-bee. As Cruz-Lite.
Just more of the same old bitter Tea!
