GOP's Gohmert: 'man up' and vote against GOP spending bill

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on Monday night indicated he would again vote against a three-week spending bill on Tuesday, just as he voted against a two-week spending bill earlier in March, and urged others to reject the bill.

"For years we've heard 'for the good of the children,'" Gohmert said on the House floor. "By golly, it is for the good of the children that this body man up, across the aisle, and quit spending money that our children don't even have.

"Let's vote no 'til we can do some real saving," he concluded.

Gohmert was one of six Republicans who voted against the two-week spending bill on March 1. Others were Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Walter Jones (N.C), Steve King (Iowa), and Ron Paul (Texas). Several of these members, including Gohmert, said they opposed the bill because it would fund Planned Parenthood.
