ICYMI: John Cornyn Thinks Texans Are Stupider Than A Slab of Meat

Austin, TX — After spending the morning lying about protecting coverage for pre-existing conditions, a devastating column from ThinkProgress called John Cornyn out:

Cornyn thinks his Texas constituents are stupid and incapable of comprehending the facts. 

From ThinkProgress:

  • “Imagine the utter contempt that Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) must hold for the American people.”

  • “Almost immediately after Obamacare became law, a bloc of almost entirely Republican state officials filed lawsuits seeking to take down the law. Cornyn did not simply support these lawsuits, he joined 35 of his fellow Senate Republicans on an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to repeal the law in its entirety.”

  • “In Congress, Republicans made at least 70 attempts to repeal Obamacare. Most of these attempts targeted the law as a whole, leaving nothing for people with preexisting conditions. Other Republican health bills contained language that appears designed to give a casual reader the false impression that the bill would protect people with preexisting conditions, but that would enable insurers to charge such exorbitant prices to people with such conditions that the protections would amount to very little.”

  • “And on top of all of this, right now there’s a lawsuit pending that seeks to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act — including the protections for people with preexisting conditions.”

  • This suit is led by indicted Texas Republican and John Cornyn ally Attorney General Ken Paxton. 

  • “Remember Cornyn’s tweet next time you hear a Republican politician rail against liberal elites who are supposedly condescending to salt-of-the-earth Americans in the heartland. Cornyn sent that tweet because he thinks you are stupid.”
