Rep. Louie Gohmert appeared on Lars Larson's talk show yesterday where they talked about how dangerous Obamacare supposedly is.

“People are already being told at the first of the year when Obamacare kicks in fully, you can’t get your pacemaker, you can’t have this, you can’t have that. Seniors are seeing how disastrous this is. People are waking up, this is not good,” stated Rep. Gohmert, noted RightWingWatch.org (audio below).

However, Rep. Gohmert failed to provide any proof of his claim or who was telling people these statements.

He also made no mention of the many Americans who have been denied health coverage by their insurance company, for decades, when contracting cancer and other fatal illnesses.

Rep. Gohmert went on to blame Obamacare for raising health insurance rates, which it does not control. The rates are set by the health insurance companies.

Rep. Gohmert then made an odd transition to attack the immigration reform bill, which he said would result in "firing every full time American employee and hiring the immigrants who have just been given legal status... then you don't have to provide them Obamacare insurance or pay the fines."
