Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) was interviewed and discussed President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address, the race for the Presidency, as well as mental health reform legislation.

Senator Cornyn shared his thoughts on the President's speech and what Obama's legacy will be, the President's use of executive actions, the 2016 race for the Presidency, as well as Republican efforts in the area of mental health reform.

About the content of the President's State of the Union address, Cornyn said,

I thought it was a revisionist history, it is not compatible with, I think, with most people's experience during his presidency. When seventy percent of the country think the country is heading in the wrong direction, things are not as rosy as the President would like to have us believe.

Continuing on the President's own view of his actions and results during his time in the Oval Office, Cornyn said,

If there's one thing he'll be remembered for, it's either shoving legislation on a partisan basis like Obamacare down the throats of the American people, or it's his illegal executive actions where he's tried to simply circumvent the Constitution and go it alone. That hasn't worked very well for him, but it certainly has polarized the American people, and just enraged them to see him acting without regard to the Constitution.

Hasty and Cornyn also discussed mental illness, and it's possible links to attacks that continue to occur across the country. Senator Senator Cornyn has introduced a mental health reform bill, brought forth as a possible Republican effort to reduce mass shootings and other similar violent events.
