Gohmert Slams Debt Deal: Hard to See Any Cuts

Monday, 01 Aug 2011 02:31 PM

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert blasted the debt deal Monday, saying the legislation was poorly worded and lacked strong enforcement mechanisms that will ensure deficits are reduced.

Instead, Gohmert said, there's way too much wiggle room for President Obama to pull tricks that will allow him to reel in cuts to entitlement programs.

"I’m looking for a reson to be a yes," the conservative Republican told Fox News. "I haven’t found it.

"I was up all night going through this and I’m just telling you, I find one concern after another," Gohmert said. "It’s only 74 pages but one of the problems going through legislation like this is you have to see what sections are referenced," he said.

"When you pull the bill and you actually see that gee, for 2013 you have $526 billion for security category and $501 billion for non-security and 10 years later those have been increased $200 billion it’s hard for me to see how that’s a cut.”
