Allen West tirade: Wasserman Schultz 'vile...despicable...not a Lady'
Florida GOP Congressman Allen West this afternoon dispatched a scathing personal email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, calling her "vile, unprofessional ,and despicable," "a coward," "characterless," and "not a Lady," and demanding that she "shut the heck up."
Wasserman Schultz, in whose neighboring South Florida district West lives, provoked his tirade with remarks after he left the House floor today, in which she responded -- without naming him -- to the Tea Party freshman's support for "Cut, Cap, and Balance" legislation to raise the debt ceiling.
"The gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a Member from South Florida," Wasserman Schultz said, saying the legislation "slashes Medicaid and critical investments essential to winning the future in favor of protecting tax breaks for Big Oil, millionaires, and companies who ship American jobs overseas."
Her criticism of the legislation -- more or less what most Democrats are saying today -- provoked a furious response. West copied members of House Republican and Democratic leadership on the email, as well as his chief-of-staff, Jonathan Blyth.The full email:http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0711/Allen_West_tirade...
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is exactly the kind of Democrat that sucks off the teet of the elderly to gain votes with smoke and mirrors while supporting plans that continue to leach off the American Family. Americans know the full impact of Medicare Cuts because they are the basis for Obamacare, take from the old people to pay off the poor democratic voters. All I can say to those individuals of all ages from the Wasserman district... You get what you pay for. Liars, thieves, deceptiveness to fool the seniors into the belief that they support them, but when push comes to shove it's quite clear the Wasserman's of the world will stomp on you, throw you aside and devastate your life in favor of the DNC.
