Cornyn: Senate a ‘Graveyard’ for Socialist Policies

Today on the floor, I discussed the push for socialist policies within the Democratic Party and the detrimental effects those policies would have on Texas. Excerpts of my floor remarks are below, and video can be found here.
“So-called ‘democratic socialism’ is nothing more than a Trojan horse, and it would destroy our country and destroy our way of life. And most fundamentally of all, it would destroy the American dream.”
“If our Democratic friends, particularly those running for president, get their way with Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and a host of other disastrous policies, the sort of prosperity and opportunity and freedom of choice that you see now in places like Texas will be out the window. So when our friend, the Minority Leader, the Senator from New York, calls the Senate a ‘legislative graveyard,’ in one respect he's entirely right because we're going to do everything we can to make sure that the U.S. Senate is a firewall against these disastrous socialist policies.”
