AUSTIN (KRLD) - On a Wednesday Conference Call with the reporters, Texas Senior Senator John Cornyn kept up the pressure against US House Democrats for what he believes is their prioritizing politics over bi-partisan legislation.

One casualty of this, according to Cornyn is the House’s failure to reauthorize a bill he co-authored with California Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein to reauthorize The Debbie Smith Act; providing funds for testing rape kits.

“That law has now lapsed because the House of Representatives failed to move on it. In my view, that’s been because they’ve been obsessed…literally obsessed with this impeachment-mania. I’m afraid there will be other casualties; for example our efforts to try to reduce prescription drug costs.”
