‘We're trying to rescue the American people and clean up the mess that our Democratic friends created when they jammed Obamacare through on a party-line vote.’

WASHINGTON – Today on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) urged his Democratic colleagues to join in Senate efforts to rescue Americans from Obamacare’s failure.  Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video of his remarks can be found here

“I was here in 2010 when 60 Democrats in the Senate jammed through Obamacare, a bill that we frankly need to save the American people from as it begins to melt down.”

“Democrats voted to jam Obamacare through this body on a strictly party-line vote.”

“We're trying to rescue the American people and clean up the mess that our Democratic friends created when they jammed Obamacare through on a party-line vote.”

“It would be much better if we could do this on a bipartisan basis.”

“But in the absence of any real help from our Democratic friends who just seem to be standing idly by, won't lift a finger to help the people being hurt by Obamacare today, we're going to have to do the best we can with the hand that we’ve been dealt on behalf of the people that we represent.”
