WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says Republicans and the Obama White House are struggling to agree on a plan to ease unemployment because "a lot of folks on the other side want to boil this down to personality."

Cantor was asked on "Fox News Sunday" about accusations the GOP has obstructed Obama's proposals.

He said "the differences we have with this president are policy-based." Cantor said federally directed stimulus efforts don't work. And he said that while Republicans agree with President Barack Obama that "there's too much income disparity in this country," they want economic policies that lift all segments of society.

Cantor acknowledged that "the people of this country want to see us trying to set aside those differences and actually come together on the things we can agree on."
