Texas Senator John Cornyn and Obamacare


Hes telling recently unemployed Americans how fortunate they are, because they can sign up for Obamacare....which he voted to abolish some 20 times.

WTF? Somebody help me make sense of this.

He sounds like a Republican. Trying to find logic and sense in the words of Republicans is like trying to find flavor in shit.

Friend, there is flavor in shit. The problem is that it has always been, is now, and always will be just the one flavor, no matter how the Republican twerps try to spin it.

John Cornyn is a lying piece of shit. And a Republican.

I'm not sure what more you need to make sense of this.

Maybe he doesn't realize that the ACA is the same thing as Obamacare that he rallied against.
Quote:
The Supreme Court has never ruled that Congress can use the Commerce Clause to require individuals to engage in an activity they have chosen to avoid. Yet that is precisely what Obamacare does: It forces Americans without health insurance to purchase coverage. Such a requirement is unprecedented and unconstitutional.

FYI, here is the story: https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...-for-obamacare I wanted to see it to make sure the OP wasn't exaggerating things...but, no, it's all true.
