Congressman Gohmert Advises U.S. Government Not to Follow Europeans Off the Socialist Cliff


On Neil Cavuto’s show on the Fox Business Network, Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert advised the United States not to follow European lemmings off the socialist cliff by bailing out failed states like Greece. Incredulously, Cavuto asked repeatedly if Gohmert meant no help to Europe at all, as if it is a mortal sin not to throw in lot with abject fools.

The Congressman might have worn out his welcome when he uttered the “F-word,” The Fed.  Gohmert even recommended Ron Paul for Federal Reserve Chair or Treasury Secretary, which got an instant smirk from the normally stoic Cavuto.

If Europeans refuse to learn from history, we at least can learn from experience.

  1. It just boggles my mind. Despite clear cut evidence that socialism does NOT work, we’re just hell bent on following in their footsteps. It makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. We’re seeing collapse after collapse, and yet there’s Obama, pushing class warfare and socialism, as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Amazing that anyone is buying the crap this man is selling…..

    1. This appears to me to be a concerted strategy that has been developing for a long time. Then again, I’m an unrepentant conspiracy theorist because I have the irrational assumption that powerful people sometimes conspire to achieve mutual goals.

      1. I’m with you. I always used to laugh at my grandpa, because he had that conspiracy theorist mentality, but maybe he was on to something! We have way too many corrupt politicians, that are obsessed with money and power, and do not have the People’s best interests in mind.

  2. CONVERT PAULSON’S LAST $350 BILLION INTO TAX HOLIDAY, SAYS U.S. CONGRESSMAN

    Press Release : FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    November 28, 2008

    Convert Paulson’s Last $350 Billion into Tax Holiday, says U.S. Congressman

    “Billions of Dollars for Taxpayers, but Not One More Penny for Executive Bailouts”

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – As millions of Americans are hoping to maximize their holiday shopping budgets on today’s Black Friday bargains, one U.S. Congressman is fighting to prevent more outrageous spending sprees by Washington with taxpayer dollars going to executive cronies.

    With $350 billion of the $700 billion bailout still available to Paulson pending Congressional approval, a conservative Texas lawmaker is proposing to put that money towards a tax holiday from both personal income tax and FICA tax for Americans during January and February of 2009.

    He stated, “By instating a temporary tax holiday, we could electrify the American economy and provide overwhelming relief to taxpayers, all for less than the cost of the current failed Paulson-Pelosi bailout system.”

    “We need to give this money to the people who earned it. I am sick of Washington millionaires trying to decide which of their cronies should get the next wad of taxpayer money,” Rep. Louie Gohmert continued. “Think about how much you would have if you didn’t have any social security or income tax withheld from your pay check, or if you didn’t have to pay those taxes for January and February! Americans could take and invest their own money where they believe it should go – to paying down mortgages, buying a new car, making credit card payments. The economy would get relief where it is needed the most. Why try to decide how to prevent foreclosures? Just give taxpayers their own money to catch up on their payments. Those in lower income brackets who are hit the hardest by the FICA tax would see huge money back, and then THEY could choose who should benefit from their hard earned money. Even the self-employed and small business owners would receive a fantastic amount of their own much-needed money, and they will be able to invest that back into their businesses and even create the ability to hire more people.”

    Gohmert is currently preparing a bill to declare the tax holiday for January and February of 2009 and is also gathering support at the same time. He said, “We can save more home mortgages, increase employment, and boost economic growth for a lower price tag with this plan than with any centralized bureaucratic program, all by giving the power back to the taxpayers. I am demanding that not another penny goes to executive bailouts, but these billions of taxpayer dollars should go to the taxpayers who earned them.”

    Would you like a 2 month tax holiday? Instead of bailing out corporations for their mismanagement, why don’t we put the money back in our hands so we can spend it to better our lives?
