On Sunday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) invited President Donald Trump to reject “establishment” health care reform proposals and support those of the Freedom Caucus. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus, said Gohmert, had both advised the President to “go to war” with the Freedom Caucus in order to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
Speaking with Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures, Gohmert warned Trump against alignment with Ryan and Priebus, describing the AHCA as a vehicle for further empowerment of the federal government:

Bush] administration, they said, ‘If you’re a patriot, you’ll give us all this extra power to snoop on people - maybe some Americans - but give us this power, we won’t abuse it.' They didn’t so much, but we gave so much extra power that the Obama administration has been able to abuse right and left."Read the rest of the story HERE and follow a link below to a related story:
