Can’t, or?

WASHINGTON — House Democrats are circulating a resolution accusing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) of having a conflict of interest in the debt ceiling debate, a move that could provide an awkward C-SPAN moment for one of the lead Republicans in the budget negotiations.

The resolution goes after Cantor’s investment in ProShares Trust Ultrashort 20+ Year Treasury ETF, a fund that “takes a short position in long-dated government bonds.”

The fund is essentially a bet against U.S. government bonds. If the debt ceiling is not raised and the United States defaults on its debts, the value of Cantor’s fund would likely increase.

Conflict of Interest?

What causes you to lose sleep at night?

‘Jimmy Jehad’ in Bumfuckistan?

Or, how you’re going to provide for your kids tomorrow?

This is Economic Terrorism, at a time when our nation is engaged in a War on Terror.

This HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER will use his position in the government to PROFIT from our destruction, THAT HE HELPS TO BRING ABOUT.

This is treason, during a time of war.
