Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) recently repeated a debunked conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was deploying a “secret security force” as part of the health care reform law, but he wasn't sure if they were being trained with weapons or syringes.
In a Friday interview, Christian radio host Janet Mefferd told the Texas congressman that the evidence of President Barack Obama creating a civilian security force and hoarding ammunition was adding up.
Gohmert agreed that "Obamacare wasn't just about health care" and pointed to a section of the Affordable Care Act that created the Ready Reserve Corps to "assist full-time Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions."
While FactCheck.org has debunked conspiracy theories that claimed the health care law gave "Obama a Nazi-like 'private army' of 6,000 people," Gohmert still believed there could be evil lurking behind the Ready Reserve Corps.
"I've continued to ask questions, what is this for?" he told Mefferd. "It says it is for international health crises, but then it doesn't include the word 'health' when it talks about national emergencies. And I've asked, what kind of training are they getting? It provides in Obamacare that this commission and non-commissioned officer corps will be trained. But I want to know, are they using weapons to train or are they being taught to use syringes and health care items? But we've got no clear answers on that."
