Texas Senator John Cornyn (@JohnCornyn) No Longer Supports Defunding Obamacare. Call Him at 202-224-2934 to Ask Why
Senator Mike Lee has been collecting signatures to a letter pledging to defund Obamacare.
Senator John Cornyn was an original signer of the letter. This has been confirmed by multiple outlets, including the Blaze, and confirmed by multiple Senate sources.
But, after pressure from Senator McConnell’s office and others, Senator John Cornyn has yanked his name from Senator Lee’s letter.
Senator Lee today publicly revealed the existing signatures on his letter. They are:
Senators Rubio (R-FL), Cruz (R-TX), Risch (R-ID), Paul (R-KY), Inhofe (R-OK), Vitter (R-LA), Thune (R-SD), Chiesa (R-NJ), Enzi (R-WY), Fischer (R-NE), and Grassley (R-IA).
Senator Cornyn had previously added his name. Multiple Senate sources confirm this.
Senator Cornyn is no longer willing to promise he will oppose a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare. I think we deserve to know why. His phone number is 202-224-2934. You should call and ask.
