House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) isn’t exactly laying the foundation for the bipartisan part of next week’s bipartisan health care summit at the White House.

At CPAC this morning, Cantor declared that “we will say no to this health care bill because no is what the American people want.”Asked moments earlier about what might be “up the sleeves” of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Cantor said, “Lord only knows what’s up their sleeves.”

Cantor said Democratic health bills are predicated on “back-door dealing” and declared that “these bills are ultimately designed to lead this country to a single-payer system, something that the American people reject.”

We Republicans will go to the president and insist that he push the reset button and get serious about offering Americans a positive reform agenda.
