Heard on the Hill

Overheard: Louie Gohmert on 'These Young Women'

"The left tried to say I was attacking single moms, and if you listen to what I said, the whole point was it bugged the fire outta me that these young women, and the stories were usually very, very similar, they got bored with high school, and somebody'd say, 'Hey, drop out, the government will send you a check for every child you can have out of wedlock.' They have one child, and they find out, that's really not enough to live on, have another and another."

— Rep. Louie Gohmert on Fox News Thursday
