Louie Gohmert’s Latest Crazy Assertion
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with them. In order for the debt ceiling to be raised, the House of Representatives must vote to agree to do so. But that simple fact doesn’t seem to be found in Rep Louis Gohmert’s brain.
[He] isn’t sure whether he’ll support a debt limit deal, but he is sure of one thing: a debt default would be President Barack Obama’s fault.
A reporter for The Young Turks asked Gohmert whether he’d support a bill that would raise the debt ceiling at the Values Voter Summit on Friday.
“The word ‘deal’ concerns me,” he said. “If it’s good for America.”
When asked whether he would allow the government to default on its debt, Gohmert projected the responsibility for such circumstances onto Obama.
“No,” he said, “that would be an impeachable offense by the president.”
