Reader: send Cornyn packing
This is not about strategy, it’s about honesty.
Sen. Cornyn gives the democrats the one vote they absolutely have to have to end closure on the debt limit debate. Then he votes against final passage knowing they have plenty of votes without him (oldest politico trick in the book!) Lastly, his office issues a laudatory statement about how he stood up to the “big spenders” and voted against the raise – what a crock! It’s a lie and he knows it.
Regardless of what you think of the Republican strategy here, you should at least demand that your senators tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
According to The Freedom Index (a constitution based vote rating service), before the Tea Party and Ted Cruz came along, John’s voting record was less than stellar despite his rhetoric. Over all since 2003 he is 69 percent. In his first three congresses (2003-08) he was 50 percent! Where do you think he’d be if the tea party and Ted Cruz weren’t around?
Send him home.
