(BREITBART) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has publicly voiced his opposition to the Senate “fiscal cliff” deal that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Vice President Joe Biden cut late on New Year’s eve, and which passed early today by an 89-8 vote.

“I do not support the bill,” Cantor told reporters on Tuesday afternoon.

CNN reports that “House Speaker John Boehner and House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy both declined to answer questions as they emerged from the meeting.”

Given multiple opportunities, House Speaker John Boehner spokesman Michael Steel would not answer when asked if Boehner stands with Cantor on this deal.
