Town Hall Meeting Featured Congressman GohmertPosted/updated on: August 31, 2011 at 2:21 am
TYLER — A town hall style meeting in Tyler Monday night featured Congressman Louie Gohmert. The Lakeview Church of the Nazarene was packed with East Texans very passionate about the issues our nation is facing. KETK caught up with Gohmert before he began his speech and asked him a few questions, like how he feels about Governor Rick Perry running for president? Gohmert says he thinks it’s great for America but 6 months ago, he never would have guessed any politician from Texas would stand a chance. “People are so hungry for good leaders that it looks like their willing to even have another one from Texas,” Gohmert said.
Recently Governor Perry is quoted as calling social security a ‘ponzi’ scheme. Gohmert says even though it wasn’t well thought out back in the 30’s when it started, it’s what people are counting on. “We can’t leave people in the lurch but we can work for future generations to have something even more and better than social security,” Gohmert said.
