WASHINGTON –Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed his record of service for Texans and expressed his gratitude for continuing to represent the Lone Star State. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.
“During the campaign I had a chance to present my record of service, and I was happy to do that, to demonstrate that I’ve consistently fought to protect the rights of Texans and to create more opportunities for every family to achieve their American dream.”
“And collectively here in Washington, we have brought down taxes for American families. We’ve empowered job creators. We’ve strengthened our criminal background check system for gun purchases, and we’ve reformed our criminal justice system, just to name a few things.”
“But we’ve also worked hard to make health care more affordable by presenting more choices for consumers. We supported quality education, and we tried to make sure that safe communities are a reality for folks across the country and across the economic spectrum.”
“In Texas, we provided funding to rebuild following hurricanes, and tornadoes, and other natural disasters like many other states. And throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we provided unprecedented funding to help our frontline health care heroes, our small businesses, and our families stay afloat amid so much uncertainty.”
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue to fight for a bright future for every family in Texas and to work with my colleagues to make sure that same promise is a reality for all Americans, and that’s true regardless of who they voted for.”
