Sens. Cornyn, Grassley celebrate ‘Meat Monday’

WASHINGTON — The offices of U.S. Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA)  celebrated “Meat Monday” July 30 with barbeque beef brisket, ribs and sausage from Hill Country BBQ restaurant.  The United States Department of Agriculture, which oversees our nation’s ranchers and farmers, recently encouraged its employees to boycott meat on Mondays.

“In some of the toughest times they’ve seen in recent memory, Texas cattle ranchers and farmers deserve an Administration who works with them, not one who undermines them with boneheaded decisions from bureaucrats in Washington,” said Sen. Cornyn.

“This is a reminder to USDA that it’s supposed to advocate for American agriculture, not against it,” Sen. Grassley said.
