Actually, there's a little-known policy that allows this problem to be addressed. It's called "moving." No doubt Alabama would welcome new residents. A second option is available: a civics course which would explain exactly how democracy works.
Forget for a moment that this overlooks such things as the Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, 9/11, four presidential assassinations and the Kardashians. On the simple statement alone, one massive reality stands out -- I have a suspicion that actual slaves would have fallen on their knees and praised God for his Eternal Goodness if they were giving healthcare.
In fairness to Mr. Gohmert, he didn't explain a) why responsibility for debt failure wouldn't fall on congressional Republicans, b) what actual "high crime" the president would guilty of, which the Constitution requires for an impeachable offense, c) how he could have possibly escaped appointment to the Supreme Court, d) how much ego gratification he gets from seeing his name in print, and e) if he believes the father of his party when Lincoln said, "Better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

Just think, and it only took him four days before the debt ceiling must be raised to figure this out. One wonders what thought process brought him to this impressive conclusion. Perhaps he might know some other Republicans to whom he could pass along this revelation. (Note: "Not a good idea" is herewith defined as "catastrophic.") It is believed, but unconfirmed that Mr. Paul also said, "It's not a good idea to test a thermonuclear device in your living room."
In reporting on this, the Huffington Post wrote, "Democrats aren't wildly popular either. Obama's approval rating is a marginally positive 47 percent, while the Democratic Party is at 39 percent," For the math challenged, it's important to point out that these numbers mean that President Obama is twice as popular as the Republican Party, and Democrats are two-thirds more popular. In a political world where 10 points would be considered a landslide, the difference here is not "marginal." Rather, it's not good.
For a definition of "not good," see Rand Paul above...
