U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) along with five other Republicans have sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for a review and more time to think about S. 968, the Protect IP Act or PIPA.

Cornyn is statement released Wednesday morning said, " Texans have soundly rejected the ‘pass now, learn later’ approach that we saw with Obamacare, and the potential impact of this legislation is too far-reaching to ram it through Congress in such an abrupt way.

Stealing content is theft, plain and simple, but concerns about the internet and free speech necessitate a more thoughtful, deliberative process."

Cornyn and the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee sent the letter to Reid last week. KFYO show host Neal Boortz made his stance on PIPA and SOPA known in a monologue today.
