Canter Willing To Compromise On Jobs Plan

President Obama headed to the district of one of his toughest critics  -- House Majority Leader Eric Cantor -- to promote his new jobs plan.

The President's speech at the University of Richmond on the jobs bill was much like the confident healthcare reform speech he gave in Virginia a few years ago.

Canter says he is willing to consider it, but there is room for compromise.

"The president did talk about some measures that will provide some tax relief to some business people, and as we know, in Richmond and elsewhere in the Commonwealth and the country, they're the jobs engine," Canter says. "So hopefully we can get some progress on that very quickly and I intend to try and do that."

He does say that the President's plan does not pay for itself, and GOP leaders will remain adamant about not adding to the current massive federal debt.
