The congressman, who appeared on Hannity’s radio show Tuesday night, has repeatedly indicated he supports defunding the massive bill, according to CNS News.
Gowdy told Hannity, “We just have to have one of those ‘come to Jesus moments’ as a party where we say, ‘You know, what do we stand for? What is enough to fight over?’”
Hannity indicated he’s reached the end of his patience on the matter.
“This is it for me,” Hannity put in. “I’m going to tell you, congressman, you guys don’t do this, you’ve lost me. I’m done. Because there’s no difference between you, then, and the Democrats at that point. None.”
“Juries like contrast. Voters like contrast,” Gowdy, a former prosecutor noted. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to provide contrast.”
The current fiscal year ends Sept. 30. If a budget isn’t passed before then, Congress will need to pass another continuing resolution to fund government.
