WASHINGTON — Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor slammed Barack Obama on Monday in an op-ed criticizing the president as “anti-business, hyper-regulatory [and] pro-tax” and “fueled by efforts to incite class warfare.”

Cantor’s op-ed, which appeared in the Washington Post, reiterated many of the Republican Party’s ongoing criticisms of the president, but outlined specific attacks on new Environmental Protection Agency regulations on ozone, new standards on the composition of cement and the president’s silence on the National Labor Relations Board’s decision to file a complaint against Boeing regarding their labor practices.

Cantor also slammed Obama for being “fueled by efforts to incite class warfare,” arguing that this is illustrated by Obama’s desire to raise taxes on individuals making over $200,000 per year and small businesses earning more than $250,00 a year.

Cantor argued that the president was driving a wedge between those making more than $200,000 a year and the rest of America, that though he talks of only millionaires having to pay their ‘fair share’, the president “insist[s] on higher taxes” because he is ideologically driven to “permanently increase the size of government.”
