House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., will make a rare trip to the White House Thursday afternoon to attend a bill signing ceremony for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act.

The bill is named for a young girl who died of brain cancer last year and who was an advocate for pediatric research. Cantor will be joined by the Miller family, who are his constituents.

The bill, which seeks to increase funding for pediatric research, was a key priority for Cantor and marked an unusual election-year bipartisan victory.

    What? Erik Cantor sponsored a bill to HELP people? Don’t let the RNC know.

    If you want to live your dreams like I’m living mine go to the website Gold
    Trading Academy, I believe you can just Google them and find them. These guys
    will teach you how to trade and you can make all the money you need to in order
    to live a great lifestyle. Then move to Thailand like I have from Florida and
    really enjoy yourself like I am. The Internet here in Thailand works great for
    trading! Plus you can’t beat the women.

    Since we learn from others’ experience, we should ensure that everyone has the liberty to learn and apply their knowledge as best they can.

    While liberty is often confused with democratic processes, the right to vote does not imply that centralized control has been minimized or that those who are ineligible to vote are victims of coercion.
