Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the Senate passed legislation to prevent a tax increase for 99% of all Texans and Americans:
"I voted for this bill because it prevents a huge tax increase on 99% of all Texans and Americans. Nonetheless, I am dismayed at the lack of seriousness by the president on dealing with the core issues of our fiscal problems. Our spending is unsustainable and it is high time the president and his party engage in meaningful dialogue to get this county's spending under control."
