House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is playing to the Tea Party crowd by crying over Obama's plan to cut spending and add revenue. Cantor pulled the rug out from under John Boehner by nixing negotiations which included $3-4 trillion in cuts (depending on who you ask). Basically, the GOP got what it asked for from Obama. Huge cuts. Rather than declare victory and move on, Cantor and the extreme right are stubbornly holding on to tax relief for the wealthiest Americans.
