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.

Lib Senator who’s career needs to be put down.
he voted to bring it to the floor
The fraud voted for cloture...which means he gave Harry Reid the power of the purse.
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 really thinks his constituents are stupid.
He was apparently trying to stir up Yes votes.
And I’d say he’s right since he keeps getting re-elected.
Yes. He was whipping GOP Yes votes for Reid. He nabbed 12 at the end of the day.
What a piece of crap he is - please TX, vote this guy out!
I’m sure the slimy SOB thinks he can pull this off, I pray Texans boot this turkey out.
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.
He’s scared. Real scared. Keep it up Texas!
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.
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!
Pound sand Cornpone!
Who is his opponent in the primary? Where do I send some $$$?
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.
I'm planning on voting for Steve Stockman myself.
Stop the Magnet Press Release on TX Senate Race (IMMIGRATION);
I am not up on the Texas primary challengers. I’m sure some our Texas
Freepers will step up to help. I know there is one called Stockman.
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.
What a lying, dishonest little weasel, after he and McConnell whipped up twelve RINO votes to get it through Cruz’s objection.
He is like the rest of the political elite... the only time the sob lies is when his lips move.
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.
I’m voting for Stovall in the primary; but will vote for Stockman without reservation if he makes the runoff.

Like the Dems granted permission not to vote for Obamacare.
Any combination of eight of these that either voted for or didn’t vote
would have kept the colture vote from passing.
What a slime. I wonder if these people actually think we don’t know how cloture works.
His career suggests he knows what he's talking about. Someone has to keep voting for him.
They sure are teaching us, if we don’t. They are teaching us a lot about Congressional maneuvers, which is only a good thing, for us. Not so much for them.
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.
Someone’s feeling the heat back home....
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 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.
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.
