Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) is proud of how he helped stop health care reform from passing.

“If I hadn’t been a part of the debate, you would already have universal health care,” Enzi said Monday, according to a report in the Casper Star-Tribune.

Enzi was part of the infamous “Gang of Six” senators tasked with putting together a health care compromise that both Democrats and Republicans could vote for. However, no Republicans wound up supporting the final bill, which squeaked by in the Senate with a vote of 60 to 40.

Earlier today, Enzi became the first Republican to accept an invitation to the White House’s health care summit.
