Allen West Stands Up for Military; Will You Stand Up For Him?
Natl Center For Public Policy Research | September 12, 2012
We must do all we can to support Allen West as he is doing all he can to support the military and the troops he served side by side with. West has fought bravely for our country in the military and now serves the public in Congress. While his opponent and his leftist allies are doing all they can to smear West and attack his character, his record and anything else, West is doing his job in Congress, serving those who elected him 2 years ago.
On Friday while most Democrats were reveling in another speech by the President, West was sponsoring a bill that aims to stop the massive defense cuts coming in January called sequestration, that he argues would harm our national security.
House to vote on requiring Obama to find alternative to sequester cuts
By Jeremy Herb – 9/8/12
The House will vote next week on legislation that would require President Obama to submit a plan to replace the sequestration cuts ahead of the November election...
The “National Security and Job Protection Act,” sponsored by Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), was a new measure included on the House Majority Leader’s legislative calendar on Friday. The bill says that the sequestration cuts to defense spending go too far and would harm national security, arguing that alternatives must be found…
…The bill will focus floor debate in the House on sequestration and the cuts to national defense when Congress returns next week, something that House Republicans are eager to talk about.
Republicans have actively sought to blame sequestration on President Obama, and a book released next week by Bob Woodward that details the debt-limit deal negotiations could provide more ammunition, as excerpts have suggested the idea for sequestration came from the White House.
The GOP has complained that Senate Democrats and the president have not come out with their own plan to avert the impending automatic cuts, while the House has passed a Republican plan already.
The defense cuts under sequestration have become part of the presidential race, as Mitt Romney has criticized Obama multiple times for harming the military by allowing the cuts to become law.
The Hill – 9/8/12
PLEASE MAKE A CONTRIBUTION NOW TO HELP SAVE COL. WEST!
Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) is a pro-troop conservative freshman Member of Congress. As an African-American former military officer with service in Iraq, he has been under constant attack by the left. But instead of fighting every challenge to his record or his character, Allen West is busy doing his job, serving his constituents and all Americans.
This race is so crucial with the news that the Rothenberg Political Report, which handicaps Congressional races across the country, has ranked Allen West as the most vulnerable GOP incumbent in the state of Florida.
Since Allen West came upon the political scene in 2010 he has been a popular punching bag for the left’s attacks while he has steadfastly stood up for our troops and given the halls of Congress a loud and proud voice representing our military and its interests; just as Move America Forward Political Action Committee (MAFPAC) predicted when we supported him in 2010.
He has been attacked by politicians such as Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, insulted by comedians such as Bill Maher and Jon Stewart and harassed by his Democratic opponent, who called him a “coward.”
Allen West won’t stoop to the level of Maher, Stewart or his opponent, Partick Murphy, so it is up to us to fight these attacks and show the people of South Florida the difference between Allen West, an honorable veteran working to better this country and his opponent, an accountant who is more interested in gaining power for his family and friends.
Patrick Murphy is an accountant who works in the family business and has raised most of his campaign money from those close to his family’s business interests (or from left-wing Democrats eager to see West defeated). He has attacked Col. West as a “coward” while he himself has never served his country in the military and has no basis to make such an insulting claim. This is the type of candidate Nancy Pelosi and President Obama support.
Allen West represents everything they fear: strong, fearless leadership ready to tackle real problems and say and do what is necessary to get the country back on track. The choice is clear.
Please help us support Allen West so he can continue to serve in Congress: PLEASE DONATE NOW !
