Much More: Cantor shifts tone on Wall Street protesters, calls frustration 'justified' - The Hill's Blog Briefing RoomBy Russell Berman
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) made an abrupt shift in rhetoric toward the Wall Street protesters on Tuesday, saying they were justifiably frustrated, just days after describing the people in the streets as growing mobs.
People are upset, and they are justifiably frustrated, Cantor told reporters at his weekly Capitol Hill briefing. They are out of work. The economy is not moving. Their sense of security for the future is not clear at all. People are afraid, and I get it.
