Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas on Sunday called President Barack Obama a liar for stating last week that the GOP's "holy grail" is to prevent Americans from receiving healthcare by defunding the Affordable Care Act.

"That is an absolute, blatant lie," Gohmert said on ABC's "This Week." "We are not trying to keep anybody from getting healthcare."

Gohmert said Obama was unfair for delaying parts of the federal healthcare law but not others, as the president did in July, when he let the mandate for large employers slide for a year.

"The president himself says, 'It's not ready, so I'm giving this break to all big business.' … He didn't let the individual mandate have a year off," Gohmert said. "That only goes to big business. That’s not fair."

Regarding immigration reform, the Texas congressman said border security is the party's No. 1 priority.

"I think most everybody in our party would vote for an immigration-reform bill once they can be sure the border is secure," he said. "If you pass a Dream Act … without the border being secured, then you're going to have to have another one, and another one, and another one."
