Cantor blocks Congressional insider trading bill
Go Tea Party! Eric Cantor: Patriot Hero!
Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), an early sponsor of the proposal, said Cantor's move is "absolutely unacceptable" and suggested his own leadership is being "petty."
"This is a bipartisan bill," Jones said at a press briefing in the Capitol. "The leadership of the House has seen the problem, the American people have seen the problem, and we've got a way to fix the problem.
"The public's respect and confidence in Congress is less than 10 percent," Jones added. "And I believe sincerely, that if the public saw how petty some — not all, but some — [are] around this House of Representatives, they would be disgusted."
