Gohmert: 'GOP Needs to Do to Obama What We Did to Bill Clinton'
In an interview with NPR, President Obama discussed the prospect of having to veto legislation that comes out of the GOP-controlled Congress.
"There are going to be some areas where we disagree and, you know, I haven't used the veto pen very often since I've been in office [...] Now I suspect there are going to be some times where I've got to pull that pen out," he told NPR.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), however, doesn't believe President Obama will be willing to block everything using the veto pen.
Gohmert said the president can't rely on Harry Reid and Senate Democrats to block the Republican agenda. Now, he has to do it himself, and that could hurt Democrats heading into 2016.
Gohmert recalled that after Republicans took control of Congress in the 90s, they were able to convince President Bill Clinton to sign bills on welfare reform and a balanced budget.
"Bill Clinton said over and over he wouldn't sign any welfare reform bill or require back to work. Then the House and Senate kept passing it and finally he had to sign it because they had built up enough votes to override his veto. Now that's one of the things [Clinton] is most proud of. ... I think we can do the same thing with this president," said Gohmert.
He predicts the Republicans will pass a Keystone pipeline bill, defund Obama's immigration amnesty and make changes to ObamaCare.
Gohmert said up to this point, Obama has never followed through after declaring publicly that he wants to work with Republicans.
"This president's history is saying, 'I want to work with you,' and then going to the golf course and not talking to anybody," he said.
