Politifact Virginia: Cantor on Obamacare


We are just a couple of days away from the Republican Primary in Virginia's 7th district and Congressman Eric Cantor continues to take heat from his opponent Dave Brat, a professor from Randolph Macon. 

Here is what Brat accuses Cantor of in a radio interview. The ad claims that Cantor "voted to fully fund Obamacare in October."

Is that true? According to Politifact Virginia that claim is "mostly false". According to Reporter Sean Gorman that was only a temporary spending bill only a small portion of which deals with Obamacare. 

"As far as the whole universe of Obamacare spending, this measure didn't contain that much. Most of Obamacare spending is mandatory spending which means that it wasn't effected by this measure that Cantor supported," said Gorman.
