* What a moron! Sen. John Cronyn of Texas had some extremely stupid things to say, recently, but it is just part of his history.
Why shouldn’t same sex couples have equal rights? According to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), it’s because equality is just too expensive.
“Repealing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) would actually result in an expansion of federal benefits and spending at a time when we know that federal spending is way out of control and our entitlement programs are unsustainable,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.
“Repealing the Defense of Marriage Act would actually increase the cost of Social Security that is already insolvent,” he added. “No one has paid into the Social Security system expecting benefits to be paid to same sex partners.”
Do you know what is too expensive for this country? I think that having morons in the U.S. Senate like Cornyn costs this country too, too much. Would it be okay if the U.S. stopped allowing oil and gas concerns from contributing to political campaigns? According to OpenSecrets, Cornyn has received over $1.8 million in contributions from people associated with oil and gas companies.
Despite the economic situation the country is experiencing, Cornyn and his ilk have gone after Planned Parenthood!!! Why is Cornyn spouting lies about Planned Parenthood? Cornyn and his Republicans in the House and Senate have wasted their time and energy being concerned about our uteruses instead of getting people back to work.
Cornyn says he supports veterans but he has continued to vote against funding for our vets and their health care. Shame on Cornyn and his Republicans for their lies, and self-serving, right wing agenda.
Cornyn's record on veterans has been documented by TxVeterans on YouTube:
