Wednesday on The Chad Hasty Show, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) appeared on the program to discuss hot topics in the news from Washington, D.C. and in Texas.

Cornyn and Hasty discussed the COVID-19 stimulus bill being debated in Congress, and the wasteful spending that has been included in the bill, as well as news from the vaccination front, proposed legislation affecting Second Amendment rights, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott's announcement yesterday lifting coronavirus restrictions in Texas.

While talking about the large amount of taxpayer dollars in proposed spending contained in the COVID-19 relief bill, Cornyn said,

For some reason Speaker Pelosi, President Biden, Chuck Schumer, they want to pass a 1.9 trillion dollar bill that only nine percent of it has to do with COVID-19, less than one percent has to do with vaccinations...This is ridiculous spending, it's borrowed money...All this recklessness when it comes to spending on non COVID-19, while claiming that it is COVID-19 I think is just sheer hypocrisy.
