If he loses in November, then that is Cornyn's problem, not mine.
Cornyn is up for election in 2020, not this year.

What do you plan on doing? Vote for a democrat?
Maybe I should wait until 2020 to answer you. "rlol"

Reality.

They didn't repeal Obamacare. They didn't eliminate any Federal anti-Bill-of-Rights zones like USPS or COE wetlands. They didn't pass national reciprocity. They did support further restrictions on civilian arms. They did pass legislation that will increase the national debt. They didn't make any meaningful progress, if any, to "drain the swamp."

If they continue to pander to the progs, I think they will lose more votes than they gain. If the Republican politicians choose that path, they shouldn't complain where that path takes them on election day.
If you were there how would you do it without more senators? As long as it takes 60 votes we are dead. Tax relief passed because it didn't take 60 votes. We all complain but technically how can we pass anything when all of the dems vote no?
Trump and the GOP managed to eliminate the individual mandate. Barely.

The GOP needs to stop promising the moon during election time and then deliver only "crumbs" during congressional time.

It continues to amaze me how the progs can ram through so much crap and the GOP cannot. The GOP turns tail and runs at the slightest provocation from the progs. Heck, look at the bloated budget they passed. Even Chucky Schumer was laughing at all he got.
I would like to know how one can deliver more than crumbs without 60 votes in the senate. Tell me how to do it without compromising every thing I believe in as a conservative. We have a majority but not enough of a majority to get anything done.
When I vote Republican I get excuses. I'm tired of excuses. I think I'll do something different this November.

The way things are going, I know a few people who may not self-identify as Republicans in 2020.
