Eric Cantor Rewrites Labor Day History

I try to ignore some things politicians say (like Todd Akin's recent blunder), but a recent twitter post by Eric Cantor (R-Va) had the Republican House Majority leader claiming that labor day celebrates "job creators" than the actual people who do labor. His actual post yesterday was the following:

 “Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success.”

No Labor Day celebrates the common working man who fought hard to get honest pay for honest work. Who fought for the working standards we take for granted. Conservatives love to re-write history, but I haven't shaken my head so hard since Todd Akin claimed the pilgrims escaped Europe from "socialism" even though the date he cited was about two centuries before Karl Marx was even born. How can people be so easily fooled? The Elephant Party no longer cares about the working man except on election day. Then they pretend to care.
