$17,000,000,000 and increasing. Some believe playing politics as have been played over the last decade or two is costing us too much. Many see Cornyn as going along and playing politics like they've been played and have accomplished very little positive. The distinction between between procedural and substance may be valid in therory. I'm talking about practicality and how it plays out in public opinion. However, we are in a position as a country where we are having to rely on procedural tactics because there are too many people not addressing the substance of the crisis which our country faces. Tell me that Reid hasn't resorted to using procedural tactics to change the rules of the senate to favor the progressives.
I'm not advocating for or against Cornyn. I am trying to bring attention to the race as I see this as an important race people need to pay attention. Remember, perception becomes reality. If you don't believe me, go look at the comments on Cornyn's Facebook page. He is seen by many as a go along establishment republican politician. Right or wrong, that is the reality.
