Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn's bid for re-election got a boost this week from a GOP colleague and one of the top newspapers in his state.
Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn on Monday marked the five-year anniversary of President Obama's economic stimulus, but it was hardly a laudatory toast to the 2009 bid to restart America's infrastructure and workforce.
"Make no mistake, this is yet another cherry-picked delay motivated not out of concern for the millions of Americans who have lost the health care plan they had and liked, but out of a desire to help the president's political friends escape yet another embarrassing Obamacare blunder at the ballot box," Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, said in a statement.
"Raising the minimum wage would slash jobs and harm an already fragile workforce," said Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican. "Whether it's Obamacare, a minimum wage hike, or a trillion-dollar stimulus bill charged to the nation's credit card, the bottom line is the president's big-government experiment kills jobs."
