Cornyn votes against raising the debt ceiling
Pearland Journal ^ | 2/12/14 | Pearland Journal

Posted on 02/12/2014 3:34:07 PM PST by jimbo123

WASHINGTON, D.C. —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.”

The fraud voted for cloture...which means he gave Harry Reid the power of the purse.

But first... he voted for it.

This bastard needs to be retired. I won't vote for him in the primary, and I won't vote for him in the general election.

May as well have a democrat in that office.

He voted for cloture. This short article is purest claptrap and misdirection for the LIVers.

Yes. He was whipping GOP Yes votes for Reid. He nabbed 12 at the end of the day.

He voted “for” cloture as he did on Obamacare - show vote from a RINO in extremis.

Oldest trick in the book. Vote for cloture to get the Dems’ agenda to the floor and then vote against it to claim ‘conservatism’.

Texans, you know what to do.

Cornyn voted for cloture on ObamaCare then voted against the bill.

Cornyn voted for cloture on Amnesty then voted against the bill.

Cornyn = Weasel.

Cornyn voted to end Cruz’s filibuster. So Cornyn is lying.
I love the way Cruz put McConnell and Cornyn’s balls in a vice gripe
with his filibuster.

Hey Cornpone...

There’s this thing called the internet whereby we the people can circumvent your allies in the msm and we can actually see what you’re up to.

That’s right! We know what you did!

Texas primary early voting starts FEB 18th. We only need to keep Cornyn from getting 50% +1 votes to force a runoff, then coalesce around his opponent. Texans get out their vote for your guy early to get the momentum going. When Cruz won I believe he only had 30% of primary voters and still beat the GOPers in the runoff.

I’m voting for Stockman. My wife isn’t sure, but I may be able to persuade her just not to vote for the incumbent weasel. If only Louie Gohmert, had entered the fray.

Wow, the blowback on his Facebook page is hilarious.
Texans are pissed & clearly see through his vote.
The comments also show alot of support for Dwayne Stovall.

The RINO power structure allowed him to vote against it. Someone else took his place.

The bastards are protecting him.

He is a lying, slimy SOS. I hope he is in a fight for his life and loses. The sooner the better.

He is dishonest.

He voted for it before he voted against it. My new Senator Jeff Flake does that. I can’t seem to find a list of the dozen traitors who gave Corny cover.

Any combination of eight of these that either voted for or didn’t vote
would have kept the colture vote from passing.

Barrasso (R-WY)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Flake (R-AZ)
Hatch (R-UT)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kirk (R-IL)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Thune (R-SD)

Not voting:
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)

One comment at the source so far:

CORNYN YOU ARE A POS! YOU VOTED FOR CLOTURE WHICH IS THE SAME THING AS VOTING YES.

YOU NEED TO BE FIRED! Vote for his primary challenger TEXANS. CORNYN IS A RINO!

Someone very articulate but concise needs to give crash courses to potential voters about the basics of this, when they campaign.

Vote for cloture and vote against a bill that is assured of passage... this is the highest order of deceit. You are a cad mister cornyn... a lying pos progressive politician of the lowest magnitude.

All the way, brother. Cornyn gets nothing, here, neither in the primary or general.

Compromisers deserve what they get, and we’re getting the business— our hat handed to us. It’s “us”, or “them”.

Most in TX don’t understand how voting for cloture is the same as voting for a bill even if the senator votes “No” on the roll call. They just can’t understand. So the Cornball Express continues unabated.

After five years of out-of-control White House spending

After we all contacted his office, told him to stand with Cruz. After he has spent millions on Radio Ads saying how conservative he is.

Cornyn wants to do something.

Too Late AH.

Horsecrap. There you go with the negativity again. You do that on every thread.

People are wising up to Cornyn's tricks, and I know a lot that intend to vote for someone else in the primary.

All twelve of the RINOS who voted for cloture voted ‘against’ passage of the bill to raise the debt limit.
