Cornyn Loves Obamacare (Compelling)
CLO ^ | 1/20/14 | Congressman Steve Stockman

Posted on 01/20/2014 2:11:28 PM PST by lward99

John Cornyn doesn't want you to know the UGLY TRUTH about his intimate, cozy relationship with ObamaCare. He may deny it in public, but John Cornyn LOVES ObamaCare and the proof is...

This is a pretty compelling backstory. Whether you are a Steve Stockman fan or not, John Cornyn must go. Knew he stabbed Cruz in the back, did you know he stabbed DeMint in the back...Could not believe he sent a memo to GOP Senators promoting ObamaCare. Disgusting.

Garbage. Complete garbage. I like Steve Stockman, but Cornyn has the most conservative voting record in the Senate and this “article” is a lie.

I think the debate between D’s and R’s over Obamacare is about the mechanism of bailing out the insurance companies.

That’s why I support conservatives instead of RINO’s like Cornyn.

Cornyn is going ALL OUT to destroy Stockman early. I am getting nothing on my sidebars but ‘#ShadyStockman’ ads. He must be afraid that the people of Texas are seeing through the old tactic of allowing things to pass by procedural cloture voting.

Cornyn will be Orin Hatch in no time if we allow him to get away with stabbing Cruz in the back.

Deb,

How often have you called Sen Cornyn’s Washington, DC, office to express an opinion.

You might be surprised at the tone, attitude, positions, etc, of some of his staff members.

I wonder why?

I have heard that the fish rots from the head.

How is he not conservative? I live in East Texas (half the year) and have voted here for a long time. Cornyn disagreed with Cruz and Lee on the tactics of taking down Obamacare, but is every bit as conservative as they are.

Like I said, I like Stockman, but this new movement to purify the party will guarantee the Democrats an eternal majority & America's demise.

Cornyn is a RINO, on a good day. It takes very little be be considered “conservative” by some group. If you look how he votes after being reelected, he’s quite the lib, and then acts conservative when it comes election time again. HE NEEDS TO GO!!!!!

Maybe his staff is tired of dealing with malcontents, people stupid enough to believe tripe like this, Democrats pretending to be conservatives and Libertarians dedicated to bringing down the GOP.

I write emails to Cornyn and Cruz when I agree or disagree with them and since I've had my property in Texas and vote here, they answer me. I don't call and tie up their lines.

He leans conservative in election cycles. He will not come out and attack NObama on the border security issues. He quietly says he is for it when he should be leading the charge for it. he vote to stop the payroll tax cut, he vote to deny a cap on upper income people’s income tax bracket.

He is a convenient Republican when it is fund raising time.

A purging is exactly what we need.

It is more than his Voting record...

John Cornyn fed reporters attack points to use against Ted Cruz.

This story hit the day after Breitbart broke news McConnell and Cornyn were leading an inside plot to sabotage Cruz.

You really have no idea what you ‘re talking about, but if you joined the purity loons because he didn’t lead a “charge” for something, you have NO credibility. He has the 1st or 2nd most conservative voting record IN THE SENATE! This is ridiculous!

John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
  • Arlen Specter - Democrat
  • Charlie Crist - Democrat
  • Lincoln Chafee - Democrat
  • Lisa Murkowski - Independent
Also, when he had a chance to stop ObamaCare by supporting Ted Cruz' filibuster
he FAILED
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.

Yes, lots people disagreed with running Tea Party people like Sharon, Joe Miller, Christine O'Donnell and the others because they feared they couldn't get elected and the Senate was winnable. So what?

THE DEMOCRATS defeated the ones who lost with lies and propaganda, Cornyn didn't, he just supported a different REPUBLICAN, NOT A FRIGGIN' DEMOCRAT!

I supported Sharon Angle and sent her money, but I don't call people who didn't support her "RINOs".

How do you explain him and McConnell being behind the attacks on Ted Cruz, handing talking points to questioners and such?

This guy is like Orrin Hatch. He is conservative around election time, but when the chips are down, he serves McConnell loyally, and we all know exactly what Mitch is about.

He’s not the worst. Not in the category of Linda Gayham or Juan McLame, or that idiot from Arkansas, but Cornyn just isn’t prepared to fight for principles.
Why did Inhofe stand up to support Cruz, but Cornyn didn’t bother?

He DISAGREED with Ted Cruz. As did Rand Paul. He knew the Democrats would not break ranks. They didn't. He knew that even if they had, Obama would NEVER have signed a bill overturning Obamacare and would veto it.

He didn't "kneecap" Angle. He didn't think she could win.

Go peddle the rest of your crap somewhere else. I'm not interested.

Cornyn also needs to go since he would become Senate Minority/Majority leader after McConnell gets thrown out of the Senate.

Excuse me! Cruz never conducted a filibuster. He MADE A DEAL with Harry Reid to talk for a pre-determined period of time on the floor of the Senate. Rand Paul was against the government shutdown to defund it and spoke out against it all over the place.

I have called Cornyn’s office.

I called him the morning of the expected vote to fund Obamacare.

I called every one of his offices at ten in the morning.

No answer.

Not busy; NO answer.

That tells me all I need to know about that pasty man.

Called Cruz’ office immediately, to tell them Cornyn’s office wasn’t answering, that I knew how Cruz was going to vote.

Then he took over.

And Cornyn still voted to fund it.

He runs ads in Texas as a conservative. He is dishonest. and he is not conservative.

Get him out of there!

...with respect, old John has served two terms and is a lawyer...............notwithstanding the merits or demerits of his voting record, that’s two objective strikes against him right there................

He can head on back to texas and work for a living. Pettling his accrued influence, he can make millions.

.........Let’s not talk out of both sides of our mouth about term limits!

And, yes I know Cruz is a lawyer. But, I will be against him seeking a third term too, when and IF the time comes.

//////////////////

So, . . . You make it sound like it was not important or effective when he spoke on the floor of the Senate for some twenty-plus hours? From my perspective, it riveted the country’s attention on the Obamacare issue like no other Senator or Representative was able to do.

Cornyn stayed away from that event, too, by the way. He later said it was because he didn’t want to take away from Ted Cruz’s moment. Somehow, that rings false, when a number of other Republican Senators saw fit to share the dais for a time with Cruz in support of Cruz’s stand.

Besides, when did Cornyn ever “make a deal” with Reid to talk for a similar period of time — on ANYTHING?

For instance, why did Cornyn not make such a deal with Reid to protest the impending vote to repeal DADT in the military. Guess it was just not that big a deal to “conservative” Cornyn.

As the other FReeper pointed out, Cornyn has not “led the charge” on much of anything of importance to true conservatives.

In my view, Cornyn is passive; he is a wallflower; he is Mr Go-along-to-get-along. I have complained more than once to his staff regarding the fact that he is generally nowhere on the news. Compare that to some of his Senate colleagues (in both parties) who make it a point to get in front of a camera on a regular basis.

Don’t get me wrong: Cornyn would be a hero, were he representing Rhode Island or Delaware.

Unfortunately, he seems to have forgotten that he is representing Texas, and I view him as a marshmallow who needs to be primaried with vigor.

Wait a minute...Cornyn "is like Orrin Hatch." You mean the Orrin Hatch Sarah Palin endorsed, campaigned & fundraised for? That Orrin Hatch? Well, he's not as strong as I'd like (I prefer Mia Love), but if he's good enough for Sarah, he's okay by me.

It might interest you to know that a few months ago at a fundraiser in Hollywood, both Jeffrey Katxzenberg and Harvey Weinstein said they'd spend whatever amount it took to destroy Mitch McConnell so Hillary wouldn't be troubled by him. They're the money behind his opponent. You must be working for them.

Why don’t you (and I) know Mr Cornyn is already plenty busy talking with the “really important” people, like lobbyists and liberal Senators? :-)

Haha, your statements on Orrin are a little out of date. Mark Levin also endorsed Orrin during his reelection and has since completely disowned him as a traitor. During the time since that election, he has attempted to organize the ousting of Mike Lee in Utah and also signed on to anti-free speech discrimination laws. He didn’t even have the nerve to vote during the Cruz filibuster.

I’m sure you’re all aboard the re-elect McLame train.
