President Barack Obama's administration got a "twofer" from last weekend's Iranian nuclear deal, says Rep. Louie Gohmert.

"First of all, you get to betray a friend you don't like, which is Israel," the Texas Republican told Sean Hannity Monday on Fox News. "They've repeatedly made that clear. Even though their words say, 'Oh yes, we're friends,' their actions make very clear they're not."

Secondly, Gohmert said, the news also helped provide a distraction "from the disaster that is and will be Obamacare."

Rep. Leonard Lance, R-N.J., who was on the program with Gohmert, called the deal that eases sanctions on Iran "fundamentally bad policy," as were Obamacare and the Senate filibuster rules change.

The filibuster rule allows for judicial and some other presidential appointments to come to the Senate floor for a vote with 51 votes rather than the customary 60.

"And that, of course, will inure to our benefit when we gain control of the United States Senate in a year," Lance said.
