John Cornyn Votes “No” on Public Service

Breaking with his fellow Republican, the junior Senator from Texas, John Cornyn voted with the radical rightwing conservatives in the Senate to oppose public service in the United States.

Cornyn voted NO on March 26th on S. 3487, the Serve America Act.

The “Serve America Act,” sponsored by Senator Edward Kennedy and cosponsored by a bipartisan array of 19 other senators, the act amends the National and Community Service Act of 1990 by upping the numbers of volunteers to serve their country under several programs, from 75,000 to 250,000.

Gee, Senator. Voting against public service? Nice job.
