        What makes him a wack job?

        He doesn't support obama care. Many people don't. He says he won't raise taxes in his state and won't vote to increase the debt limit. Sounds like a reasonable platform.

        Doesn't support amnesty for illegals. Also a very popular stance in America.

          There is nothing reasonable about saying you'll vote to destroy the economy.

            Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘‘the buck stops here.’’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
            I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.

                Funny how the right is so deeply concerned about burdening future generations of Americans with debt (never mind it's a funny money concept anyway[*]) but has no hesitation in burdening future generations of humans worldwide with a damaged planet, and that's quite real.
                [*] - Imagine if every bit and byte recording financial information worldwide was erased. Does my house suddenly become valueless? Nope.

                  One less establishment, ***hole RINO and one more actual conservative in the House = a good night.

                    Do you realize how stupid this is?

                    Raising the debt limit is PAYING BILLS you already incured. These are the bills the Republicans have in the budget they already passed!! If you want to slash the budget well do your best but don't pass a budget and then refuse to pay the bills when they come due. In what area of life is this acceptable? Only in Tea Party D.C. do they think not paying the bills is a good idea.

                        'The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.' -Barack Obama

                          Because he spent most of victory speech talking about how Jesus had won him the election and that God had special plan for him.

                            Cantor was one of the most conservative representative in Congress in the last decade. He was a "tea partyer" before that fraction even existed. I guess the Fox News spins was he wasn't a conservative enough now.

                              What purpose does the debt limit serve?
