Real reforms are needed if America's fiscal problems are going to be solved, Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told CNBC Wednesday.
"We are in a debt crisis. The American people are expecting us to deliver on our commitment that we are going to change the spending crisis in Washington," said Cantor (R-VA.).
America's debt ceiling is still looming heavy over Washington's lawmakers as the country is on track to hit the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling on May 16. Cantor says the debt ceiling issue is a chance to change how Congress operates.
"That debt ceiling vote has to be some real reforms, and I mean real, not the typical Washington kick the can down the road stuff," Cantor added. "But real things that can produce savings and actually begin to change the way the culture works."
