From the desk of Rep Allen West “Recycling the Lie of the Year”

From the desk of Congressman Allen West (FL) (R)

Today the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched automated phone calls charging that I want to end Medicare and slash the medical benefits seniors rely on.
If it sounds outrageous it’s because it is.  And it’s not new.  In fact, the nonpartisan political watchdog group Politifact called this outrageous claim the “Lie of the Year” in 2011!

Will you consider a donation to ensure that I have the resources to fight back and get the truth out—not only about the failed economic policies of President Obama and Washington liberals—but about the Democrats plan to slash Medicare by $575 billion while placing our seniors’ healthcare decisions in the hands of unelected bureaucrats?

Medicare’s trustees have warned time and again that Medicare is headed for bankruptcy if we do not take action.

Not only are Washington liberals slashing Medicare, but their refusal alone to acknowledge the problem will result in Medicare’s destruction. Sadly, instead of acknowledging the problem, working to protect the Medicare for current beneficiaries and reforming the program to protect it for future generations, Democrats are more focused on scoring political points with demagoguery and mean-spirited scare tactics.

Given their record of epic failure from the economy to energy to healthcare to spending, it is safe to say that President Obama and his fellow Democrats are not going to be running on their ideas or their record. Their campaigns are going to be based on mudslinging, fear and outright lies.

Regardless of the mud liberals throw at me. I am ready for the coming fight and with your generous financial support, we will fight back.


Thank you for your continued support.
Steadfast and Loyal,

LTC (R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress
