WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement on his support for the House-passed continuing resolution (CR) that defunds Obamacare:

“Nearly four years ago the Democrat elite rammed through the President’s $2.6 trillion, 2,000 plus page takeover of health care under the cover of night with the help of special sweetheart deals like the Cornhusker Kickback and the Louisiana Purchase.  

“Now that they know what’s in it and it’s clear the law is an utter disaster for American families, I call on all my Democrat colleagues, especially those from Arkansas, Louisiana, Alaska, and North Carolina, to join Republicans in defunding Obamacare.”
