Cornyn's fight to cut debt carries political price, Houston Chronicle

"When Texas Sen. John Cornyn recently voted against legislation funding NASA, with its thousands of jobs at Houston's Johnson's Space Center, it caused a bit of a stir back home. After all, the Republican senator always prided himself on being a champion of home-state interests. Even Cornyn readily admits that his vote is an about-face. But there's a clear explanation for the change: Cornyn says he's trying to strike a balance between his dual roles as a senator seeking federal spending in Texas and as an emerging GOP congressional leader fighting to cut government expenditures."
