Louie Gohmert Warns Obamacare Will Lower Life Expectancy
In an interview with Lars Larson last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said he opposes “fixes” to Obamacare because that would preserve the health care reform law, which he wants to see postponed until it is fully repealed. Gohmert then told Larson that the Affordable Care Act will actually lower life expectancy in the US.
“I’m willing to postpone as much of it as we can, hoping that in 2016 we really will get a president who has the best interest of a free nation at heart and not one going socialist,” Gohmert said. “If we keep doing little fixes to it, that also helps keep it, so I would rather postpone it as much as possible without doing little fixes because the little fixes could end up giving us a system where we see the morality rate start coming down, you die earlier, not because it’s an actual death panel but because you don’t get the treatment.”
Gohmert may be curious to know that life expectancy in America is actually lower than in Western countries with universal health care.
