Wednesday, the "Healthy Aging Coalition of East Texas" invited congressman Louie Gohmert to speak on the Affordable Care Act.

Seniors, health care professionals, and hospital administrators, gathered to ask questions on how this new law will affect them.

Gohmert's main concern is seniors.

The main point, Gohmert says Obama care cut $716 billion from Medicare.

Gohmert's priority is avoiding a system where seniors do not receive the medical attention they deserve, right when they need it.

Gohmert says, "Here in the U.S. if the doctor says you need bypass surgery, you get it that day. In England they're trying to get the average down to 10 months".

He believes the only way to prevent this is to fight the Affordable Care Act, rather than to just let the system collapse on itself.

Gohmert says, "In my heart I just can't knowingly say, let's let people suffer and then they'll come running. I just can't knowingly do that".

During the government shut down, Gohmert believes the Republicans made every effort to compromise on the Affordable Care Act.

He says, "Harry Reid and President Obama were determined they wanted a shutdown. They think the Republicans would be blamed even though the Senate did nothing to negotiate. Nothing. Zero".  

He encourages those in neighboring states to talk to their congressman and fight.

Someone needs to finally/loudly tell this joker he is a bald-faced/headed liar...pandering to and creating fear in those who may not be able to discern truth from lies...but they should know that whenever gomer has his mouth open, he is lying...his strident tone, the look of consuming hate on his face for all things associated with President Obama (racist in origin?), and his right-of-right tea swiller rhetoric is designed to incite hatred for the POTUS and to shore up his re-election base.

I doubt it Shela. Part of the job as a Representative is to speak out on issues, and he is doing that.

Congress does not vote every day of the year, so they do have time for this.

And he is speaking the facts as they stand. Obamacare is one of the worst legislative disasters ever by any country.

Hope for change in 2014. Many Democrats up for re-election.

Yup and the republicans said the same thing about Social Security and medicare too.

Republicans hate any program for WE THE PEOPLE and LOVE every program for the corporate world.

Louie quit his job as our representative to become a regular on Hannity's TV show.
