WASHINGTON – Today on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on Democrats to stop their partisan games and work with Republicans to pass additional COVID relief for the American people. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.
“As we move into the winter months, which the experts have told us will present new challenges in our war against the COVID-19 virus, it’s time to cut the partisanship and deliver another round of relief to the American people.”
“Our Democratic colleagues have consistently talked about the need to bolster our support in the fight against COVID-19, but despite repeated rhetoric and calls to action, they’ve unapologetically stood in the way of each and every attempt to make real progress.”
“The fact of the matter is our Democratic colleagues have blocked more COVID relief bills than they have passed.”
“It’s time to start getting back to work for all the American people on a bipartisan piece of legislation and to quit the partisan games. I can’t say it any more directly than that.”
