Meet the Texas Senator Who Couldn't Care Less About Our Vets


Health care.  Mental health benefits.  Adequate body armor and armored vehicles.  A college education.  These are just some of the necessities all of our service members deserve.  But clearly, Senator John Cornyn doesn't think so.

Cornyn's rhetoric belies his appalling record in the Senate.  The fact that Cornyn has stood with President Bush 95 percent of the time and has opposed our service members on more than 20 key issues proves he doesn't support our troops or veterans.  It's a fact every Texan needs to know, now.

Every Texan must see this video.  Send this to ten friends and get them to pass it along to ten more.  Post this video on your blogs and spread it on sites like Digg -- some of the most effective ways to reach those outside the choir.

Let's make sure everyone knows John Cornyn is not giving our veterans and troops the respect they deserve.

People in the film:

  • Jason Cisneroz (War in Afghanistan Vet) - Staff Sergeant, US Army Reserve
  • Ruben Dominguez (Vietnam War Vet) - Sergeant 1st Class (Ret), US Army
  • Benito Guerrero  (Vietnam War Vet) - Sergeant Major (Ret), US Army
(Read Cornyn's votes on vets after the flip.)
