Cornyn Votes Against Raising the Debt Ceiling

Feb 12 2014

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after voting against raising the debt ceiling.

“After five years of out-of-control White House spending, including a jobless, trillion-dollar stimulus, now is hardly the time to give the President carte blanche to continue his spending spree. I voted against raising the debt ceiling because we need sensible reforms to cut down on spending and restrain Washington going forward.”

Cornyn Votes Against Raising the Debt Ceiling

In a surprise move nearly 40 minutes in to the procedural vote, McConnell voted in favor of advancing the bill. Texas’ John Cornyn, the Republican whip, then joined him. Both senators are up for re-election in 2014, and McConnell faces challenges from both his left and right, heightening the pressure he faces on nearly every move he makes in the Senate.

Normal traitorous, deceitful behavior of that Democrat Collaborating Cornyn!

Cornyn Votes Against Raising the Debt Ceiling

He voted for the debt ceiling increase before he voted against it.

The cloture vote was the only vote which mattered. He not only voted for it, but he and McConnell whipped ten other "Republicans" in line to vote for it too.

That’s Cornyn’s shtick all over. Support cloture to move the bill forward and then posture with a now meaningless vote against. Then proceed to beat your chest about how “conservative” you are. The bald-faced mendacity and duplicity is jaw-dropping.

Cornyn voted to allow democrats to use 51 votes. He has no guts. He is not a conservative. He is an insider and I think he is as corrupt as they come. Vote for any of his opponents.
God BLESS Ted Cruz.
