Cornyn to support debt deal

Last November the message from the American people was crystal clear: end reckless, out-of-control spending and return fiscal sanity to Washington. The American people made their voices heard, and their impact has been monumental. In his initial request to raise the debt ceiling, the President insisted on a blank check for more spending, demanded higher taxes on job creators, and shunned the idea of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. Today this proposal cuts spending, does not raise taxes on Texans, and guarantees a vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. This proposal is not perfect, but it is a step in the right direction and I will support it because it serves as an important benchmark towards fundamentally changing the debate in Washington, as the American people asked for last November.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas
