“God bless Donald Trump,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) declared Thursday as the president prepared to sign an executive order to eliminate health care regulations and lower premiums.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Varney and Company,” Gohmert praised Trump for refusing to give up on health care reform despite opposition from Republicans in the Senate who won their seats by promising to take action on health care and tax reform – but, reneged once they were elected:
“There have been so many in the Senate who got elected promising to repeal Obamacare, to have massive tax reform.
“God bless Donald Trump. He’s doing everything he can, despite dealing with dishonest Senators that got fraudulently elected.
“One of the things I love about Donald Trump, if you heard him yesterday talking to Sean Hannity, he says, I love this –‘we are not giving up, we are not giving up.’ That's my guy. We are not giving up on health care. We can't give up. There are too many people that are paying too much in premiums, premiums are spiking, deductibles are spiking …”
“He's doing something President Obama did in eliminating the mandate. The difference is Obama eliminated the mandate for his supporters and Trump is going to eliminate the mandate for everybody it may hurt. So there's a little difference there – it's not a partisan effort to help.”
