Something this brilliant could only emerge from the mind of Louie Gohmert.
GOHMERT: “Well, the Founders gave us the power of the purse. It’s going to take a lot of courage to stand up to the president and say, ‘We’re going to start defunding anything that you care deeply about that’s not important to the American people.’ We’re going to start defunding the Attorney General’s office. We’ve got a bill that would actually, and we’ve been pushing to get this into an appropriations package, it says anybody that’s in contempt of Congress can’t be paid their salary. We need to do that, we need to start eliminating money for any agency, including the White House, that is not following the law. And then you get their attention. That’s what the Founders anticipated.“
Yes, we’re going to defund anything the president cares about, just because. We may give him a Wet-Willy and put a Whoopee Cushion in his chair, too.
That’s what The Founders anticipated.
