The following is an excerpt from the Texas Republican News. THIS SAYS IT ALL
Cornyn hammered Cruz's opposition to raising Obama's debt limit in an Austin American Statesman interview published Friday, titled "John Cornyn: For the sake of the nation and the GOP, Ted Cruz’s filibuster had to be shut down."
"Obviously I would have loved for Ted and I to be exactly two peas in a pod on everything," said Cornyn, but "he chose the ugly alternative."
When asked why he chose to vote with Democrats to raise Obama's debt limit, Cornyn told the Austin American Statesman, "I don’t think anybody, including me, had the appetite" to fight Obama.
Cruz launched a filibuster to stop the measure, and the debt limit increase was going to fail. That's when Cornyn joined Democrats in voting against Cruz. Cornyn's vote bailed out Obama's debt limit increase.
The measure Cornyn supported completely eliminated any limit on the national debt until March of 2015
Senator Cornyn has made similar not-so-obvious statements in the past. He basically claimed that the GOP could not do much unless they are in the majority.
If anyone had any doubt about the war between the American people and its government, those doubts should be eliminated. Our battle has to start in the primaries. We must elect people that are willing to fight every battle. Unless we are successful, we will be at war with leaders like Senator Cornyn(the #2 republican in the senate). You must ask yourself HOW DIFFICULT WOULD IT HAVE BEEN TO PASS A DEBT LIMIT BILL WITH A REAL LIMIT INSTEAD OF THE NO LIMIT BILL THE GOP LEADERS SUPPORTED.
