Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Wednesday he wanted to move swiftly, then promptly announced on Twitter he would hold the vote the next day on the proposed $1 billion in loan guarantees to assist crisis-hit Kiev’s new government. The White House had previously unveiled the aid plan. Speaker John Boehner said the goal was to help President Barack Obama “strengthen his hand” in dealing with Europe’s most severe security crisis since the Cold War.
