The worst-kept secret in Washington is that programs many Texans and Americans depend on–Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid–are going broke. While many agree that these important programs are in dire need of reform, few are willing to stand up and lead. Many in Congress prefer to stay on the sidelines, using the issue to attack political opponents while refusing to put forward a plan of their own.
Senator Cornyn supports and has voted for responsible plans to preserve and protect these programs for Texas’ seniors and poor, ensuring they’re there for future generations. The biggest driver of our unsustainable national debt is entitlement spending. Until these programs are responsibly reformed, they will remain in jeopardy for generations of Texans to come.
