TROFire – Freshman congressman Matt Gaetz has positioned himself from the start as a Trump-backing ultra-conservative, but while venting about the failure of the AHCA, the newly-minted Rep. let slip that he believes Nancy Pelosi, if made Speaker of the House, could have Trump kicked out of office within 30 days.
Gaetz was expressing his frustration that a vote was not held on Republican Obamacare replacement American Health Care Act on local radio show “Pensacola Speaks.”
Gaetz, who was initially skeptical of the healthcare bill as well, jumped onboard when the GOP began slashing benefits and removing things like “prescriptions,” and “hospitalization” from the list of required services insurance companies must provide.
“I think that you should vote. I came here to vote, not to just have things fizzle because people are having challenges. I think that the country deserves to know who supported this bill and who didn’t.”
The Congressman’s misstep came when he predicted that if Republicans cannot repeal and replace Obamacare as promised by 2018, they will lose their Congressional majority – and in doing so, will see their president unseated.
