Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern, a Democrat from the Second District, says his fellow progressives shouldn’t celebrate House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s loss in a Virginia primary too much. Speaking on WAMC’s Congressional Corner program, McGovern says he didn’t think it was possible to be more conservative than Cantor.
The all Democratic Massachusetts House delegation voted for the compromise to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. By the very nature of compromise there were good things and bad things in the bill in the view of Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal. He called a yes vote " the responsible position".
