Democratic “Tantrums”

Here’s Cornyn:

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas),chairman of the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee, made the following statement Tuesday regarding efforts by Senate Democrats:

“It is my sincere hope that they will stop the games, and return to the business of the Senate.”
