Cornyn Statement on Three Years Without a Budget
WASHINGTON— Today U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement ahead of the three year anniversary since Senate Democrats proposed and passed a budget, which is this Sunday, April 29th:
“The last time Senate Democrats passed a budget, a gallon of gas cost about half what it does now, the debt was $4.5 trillion dollars less than it is today, and ObamaCare was just a twinkle in the President’s eye. Their lack of leadership has led to a national debt that is not only larger than the economy but also surpasses the combined debt of the Eurozone and the UK. The road out of a fiscal crisis starts with a responsible budget, and Republicans are ready to sit down and make the hard choices that entails.”
Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services and Budget Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
