Fire John Cornyn

John Cornyn really hates the #GreenNewDeal. Here’s why.

What happened to the kinder, gentler John Cornyn?

Fortunately for John Cornyn, he won’t be around to see the worst effects of climate change. But many of us will. Our children and grandchildren will. And John Cornyn, as a United States Senator, wields the power to make life or death decisions on our behalf.

Last week, Cornyn pretended not to know that the Green New Deal was a resolution, not a bill. He pretended not to even know what a resolution is—despite being in Congress since 2002.

bad cornyn tweet about how GND is a resolution not a bill "Who knew!"

He has shared multiple articles denying the facts of climate change, and dismissing the Green New Deal as a liberal boondoggle.

Here are some facts about John Cornyn, and about the Green New Deal:

  • Yes, the Green New Deal is a resolution. So was FDR’s New Deal, at the beginning.
  • The oil & gas industry is John Cornyn’s 2nd-biggest contributor.
  • The Green New Deal is about more than the environment: It’s about infrastructure. It’s about immigration. It’s about health care. This is because climate change’s devastating effects go far beyond the environment, intersecting with virtually every aspect of our lives.
  • John Cornyn is the #1 top Senate recipient of contributions from the natural gas transmission & distribution industry for 2017-18.
  • The Green New Deal is actually really short and easy to read. Don’t be intimidated. Go check it out.

  1. Well said. Cornyn is totally out-to-lunch and sold us all out in climate justice, energy leadership adn the future of our nation adn our whole planet. Fire Cornyn now!

  2. All of these purportedly bad things you’ve mentioned are actually very positive reasons to retain John Cornyn as a US Senator from Texas. Climate change may be happening, just as it has since the earth was new but nothing mankind is doing impacts climate on a global scale. Carbon is a good thing. Without carbon, trees and other plant life suffer. Give them the deforestation of rainforests, we need those trees to regenerate quickly. That will reduce atmospheric carbon in a positive way.

    However, a frightened, uneasy population is necessary for the socialist schemes of Globalists to get off the ground. The great carbon-driven climate change hoax is the ideal means by which to generate fear and distrust in the entire population of earth. It is the driving force behind the destructive Green New Deal. A more apt title would be “Green RAW Deal.”

    I’m proud of President Trump’s accomplishments since he became president. I’m not a single bit ashamed that I voted for, nor am I embarrassed over my votes for John Cornyn in the past, nor will I be when I vote for. I will not support the Socialist Parrot commonly known as Beto, or any of his ilk.
