Liberal heads probably exploded all over the Beltway on Wednesday when Texas conservative Congressman Louie Gohmert took to the House floor to do something libs truly hate:
Tell the truth about welfare checks and unwed mothers – and say he got into politics to do something about it.
“If it weren’t for the policies in this War on Poverty declared 50 years ago, it may well be that I would not have ever run for Congress,” Gohmert said.
“Because what got me thinking about it first as a state district judge back in Texas was seeing more and more young women, single women coming before me — single moms — charged with welfare fraud.
One women had had 15 kids, didn’t even know where they all were, that was the most that I ever dealt with. It began to really eat away with me that in the ‘60s the federal government, desiring to help poor moms who were dealing with deadbeat dads, decided, ‘We’ll help, we’ll give a check for every child you can have out of wedlock.’
