Louie Gohmert on GOP Healthcare Plan: ‘I Think Amidst the Horse Excrement We Can Find a Pony’
This afternoon, a number of conservative Republicans from the House and Senate held a press conference to express some of the differences they have with the House Republican healthcare bill that is meant to replace Obamacare.
One of the Congressional member who was given time to speak was Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who seemed to be a bit more accepting of the proposed plan than some of his colleagues.
Essentially, the Texas lawmaker was most concerned that the bill not have any rules preventing amendments to it that “are needed to fix this flawed bill.”
Towards the end of his remarks, tossed out some of the trademark colloquialisms that he’s become most noted for.
“I think amidst the horse excrement we can find a pony in there somewhere,” Gohmert said. “And that’s what we’re gonna be looking to have. I think we’ll have a racehorse as long as we get good amendments when we’re done.”
