Cantor accused Obama of engaging in "class warfare." ''This country is about making sure everyone has a fair shot," he said in an interview.

Republicans applauded Obama's announcement on the pay freeze. But traditional Democratic allies, including the AFL-CIO, denounced it as shortsighted.

Cantor was interviewed on CBS's "The Early Show" and NBC's "Today" program and McCain appeared on ABC.
