It looks like Cantor has flopped on this issue, what a surprise - NOT.
PolitiFact Virginia | Cantor flops position on disaster aid offsets
When Tropical Storm Gaston slammed into central Virginia in August 2004, U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor went all out to get federal disaster aid for his constituents.
The Aug. 30 deluge dumped a foot of rain on the Richmond area in 10 hours, causing floods, landslides and eight deaths.
Cantor, R-7th, fired a letter to then-Homeland Secretary Tom Ridge, seeking "immediate action" from Washington. "Time is of the essence and it is important to start working on this matter so my constituents can receive help in this time of need," Cantor wrote.
