Schumer to GOP: Follow Cantor

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's attempt to rebrand the Republican Party has earned some praise from a top Democrat. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a statement Tuesday afternoon that Democrats agreed with Cantor's diagnosis of the country's ills and urged the party to "adapt their agenda to match Leader Cantor's words."

In his speech Tuesday, entitled "Make Life Work," Cantor (R-Va.) promised that House Republicans would focus in the next two years on making life better for the middle class.
