Hi, my name is John Cornyn.
Every day I'm committed to making the Federal government smaller and more responsive to the people of Texas. With your help — and that of other Texans — I'll keep working to ensure a more open and honest government, an economic climate that removes barriers to job creation, and a brighter future for all Texas families.
Thanks for visiting my website, and I hope you'll visit often.
PETITION: Demand Accountability from the Obama Administration
May 30, 2013
With every passing week, it seems that another controversy envelops the Obama administration. Whether it's misinformation about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, discovering IRS targeting of conservatives, casting a wide net of journalist phone records, or officials inappropriately circumventing Congress to publicly promote Obamacare it is clear that this administration has broken the trust of the American people.
When details of the gun-running scandal Fast and Furious emerged, I called for Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation.
In light of that scandal and DOJ's extensive investigation of journalist phone records, I reiterate that call today. This administration has bred a culture of intimidation and cover-ups and must be held accountable at the highest levels.
We must stand together to demand a government that is transparent and takes responsibility for its actions.
When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty—Thomas Jefferson
With your help, we can send a message to the Obama Administration that Texans won't accept their deception!
Memorial Day: A Time of Reflection
May 27, 2013
Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the blessings of liberty that we enjoy as Americans, and to honor the sacrifices of those who fight to protect it.
As we spend time with friends and loved ones this holiday weekend, our unending gratitude belongs to the fallen heroes who paid the ultimate price in defense of our freedom; our thoughts remain with the families and loved ones they've left behind; and our prayers are with those who continue to wear the uniform of the greatest nation on Earth.
May we endeavor to deserve their overwhelming sacrifice.

Cornyn: The White House can learn a thing or two from Texas
May 9, 2013
The Washington Times
By Jennifer Harper
"I hope the President will come to Texas ready to take a few notes and learn from one of the most successful states in the nation when it comes to job creation and economic growth," says Sen. John Cornyn.
His advice for Mr. Obama is something that Mr. Perry has already put into practice.
"As the nation's economy continues to remain stagnant, I hope he’ll see the power low taxes, reasonable regulations, and a business-friendly environment has in driving a Texas economy that continues to grow and put people to work," the Republican lawmaker observes.

You can expect delays
April 26, 2013
In a crass display of political gamesmanship, the Obama administration has chosen to exploit modest cuts to the federal government's budget to maximize the negative impact on Americans.
Under sequestration, the Federal Aviation Administration's budget was reduced to 2010 levels, a cut that amounts to less than four percent of its 2012 budget.
In response, the White House and the FAA have chosen to furlough air traffic controllers one day out of every ten, which could delay flight arrivals for up to one third of travelers at major hubs across the nation.
I've cosponsored a bill to allow the FAA to transfer funds between accounts to mitigate the effects of sequestration on travelers.
If you agree with me, I hope you will join me by signing my petition today!
It is unacceptable for the Obama administration to make a political point at the expense of American travelers. Join me in sending the White House a message by signing my petition to stop Obama's flight delays today!
