Economy and Jobs

Our nation continues to struggle through a stagnant recovery characterized by unacceptably high unemployment and underemployment. Though Texas has fared better than most states, we have not been immune. The Obama Administration’s economic agenda of job-killing tax hikes, burdensome regulations, and stimulus-style spending has failed. That’s why Senator Cornyn and Senate Republicans have introduced a jobs plan to jumpstart the American economy. Starting with commonsense policies to live within our means, Senator Cornyn’s plan calls for reforming our convoluted tax code, easing Washington regulations on Texas businesses, and tapping into the abundant energy resources we have here at home. There’s a reason why folks from all over the country are moving to Texas: low taxes, sensible regulations, and fiscal restraint have made our state a job-creating powerhouse, and Senator Cornyn will keep pushing for Washington to be more like Texas.

    Cornyn: Millennials continue to suffer through the “New Normal”

    The president’s policies have given us a “recovery” that feels very much like a recession.

    The people most affected by the slow growth and weak job creation of the Obama years have been the millennials, many of whom campaigned for the president in 2008 and truly believed his message of “hope and change.” Little did they know what his actual agenda would mean for their future.
