WASHINGTON--U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) highlighted the ways people are hurt by Senate Democrats’ refusal to allow amendments to bills like the Bipartisan Budget Act and the National Defense Authorization Act today on the Senate floor.

Excerpts of his remarks follow:

“This is one of the things that happens when things get jammed through. Mistakes are made and people get hurt. In this instance, the people who happened to get hurt are those who wear the uniform of the United States military and have served with great hardship in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.

“Shouldn't we do everything possible now, today, to make sure that these folks have peace of mind, particularly during this season of the year? If it was a technical error to include military retirees in the pension cuts why are we not fixing the problem today? Well, there's no good reason. There's zero good reason.

“The Majority Leader's response to both the victims at Fort Hood and to active duty military with regard to their pensions that are now being cut back as a result of the vote yesterday, the response is exactly the same thing. Tough luck.”
