TexasGOPVote Blogger Endorsements: Dwayne Stovall for Senator

It's time to term limit Senator Cornyn. There is no need to pass a term limit amendment to the Constitution
If mandatory term limits were in place, then John Cornyn would be out of a job this election. It is up to the voters to effect term limits on long-term incumbents. This is especially true when the incumbent has too often followed the establishment party line of increasing the federal debt, even before Obama was elected.
According to Freedom Works here are the ten worst votes cast by Senator Cornyn:
1. Cornyn Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare
(2013, RCV 206) Senator John Cornyn of Texas voted to end debate and allow Senate Democrats to re-insert funding for ObamaCare into the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Although Cornyn did vote against the final bill, he and all Republicans knew that voting for cloture to end debate would allow Senator Harry Reid to fund ObamaCare by a party-line vote, and thus a vote for cloture was a de facto vote to fund ObamaCare.
2. Cornyn Voted for the Wall Street Bailout (T.A.R.P.)
(2008, RCV 213) Senator Cornyn voted for the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street. Taxpayers should have never been forced to pay for the mistakes of the big banks. He continues to make excuses for why he voted for the massive bank bailout. Cornyn has defended his vote, saying in 2010 that, “I'm responsible and proud of the vote I cast at the time because I thought it was a public necessity.”
3. Cornyn Voted for Medicare Part D
Senator Cornyn voted to pass Medicare Part D, a massive entitlement expansion that conservatives rightly predicted would tremendously expand the deficit and add trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities to the federal rolls. (2003, RCV 457)
4. Cornyn Voted to Increase the Federal Minimum Wage
(2007, RCV 42) Senator Cornyn voted for the Fair Minimum Wage Act that increased the federal minimum wage from $5.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour in 2007. Raising the minimum wage is a bad idea because it reduces employment especially among low-skilled workers. The cost of raising the minimum wage is passed onto consumers in the form of higher prices for goods and services.
5. Cornyn Voted for the Fiscal Cliff Tax Hike
(2012, RCV 251) The fiscal cliff was a fake crisis created by Congress and the president. Senator Cornyn voted for the infamous New Year’s Day 2013 fiscal cliff deal that raised taxes on 77 percent of U.S. households and contained no real spending cuts.
