Allen West “Obama will never take any responsibility because he believes his cult of personality will hide his deceit”


Written by Allen West on October 30, 2013 for

You can tell when President Obama is on defense. He runs out and gives a whiny speech before mindless lemmings who are coached when to clap. Mr. Obama is a classic narcissist who needs adoration, especially after the Washington Post gave him four Pinocchio’s over his pledge that “no one will take away your health plan.”

Obama has now demonized the private insurance plans which had worked fine for millions of Americans until he came along. Obama is the bad apple, not the plans.

President Obama will never take any responsibility because he believes his cult of personality will hide his deceit.


@AllenWest “Obama is guilty of bribery as he grows the welfare nanny-state by promising more largesse from the public treasury”

Today I am proud to give my endorsement of The American Health Care Reform Act (AHCRA) developed by my former colleagues in the Republican Study Committee. Unlike the onerous, convoluted, and oxymoronic Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the ACHRA is a commonsense free market solution to improve an American healthcare system by ensuring individual liberty and sovereignty are promoted. Healthcare is a very personal choice for individuals, but the PPACA violates that basic premise. President Obama can attempt to accuse Republicans of extortion, but the proof of his theft of the American dream for future generations is obvious by way of his socialist concept of wealth redistribution. As well, Obama is guilty of bribery as he grows the welfare nanny-state by promising more largesse from the public treasury in order to expand the dependency society for his own liberal progressive political designs.


Allen West “Don’t get fooled again. Democrats trying to regain control of House in 2014”


by Allen West via Facebook

President Obama has made a decision to postpone the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) until 1 Jan 2015 – which just happens to be after the 2014 mid-term elections. The Who had a song with the refrain, “We won’t get fooled again.” I implore America to not be sucker punched by Obama and the progressive socialist charlatans of the Democrat party. The Affordable Care Act is nothing more than a massive tax law that was rammed down the throats of the American people in 2010. Democrats fear having to defend it next year and they’re hoping to regain control of the House in 2014 so they can finish the job of fundamentally transforming America in Obama’s final two years — in other words, destroying our country. Don’t get fooled again!

Rep Allen West Votes to Fully Repeal the Patient Protection Unaffordable Tax Act (PPUTA)

West: “Congress and the President need a mulligan with regard to the tax law masquerading as a health care law”

“Democrats continue to play cynical political games by claiming a vote to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a vote against helping people with preexisting conditions, against keeping children under the age of 26 on their family health care program, and against helping small businesses.  Nothing can be further from the truth, as I have consistently supported these provisions and still do. My vote today to repeal the Obama Tax is a vote to reform our health care system and demand the United States Congress and President Barack Obama provide Americans with a plan focusing on patient-centered care, choice, flexibility, lower costs and on keeping doctors practicing and providing quality care. Congress and the President need a mulligan with regard to the tax law masquerading as a health care law.
(WASHINGTON)– Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today as he prepares to vote to repeal the largest tax increase on the American people, the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”:

My vote for repeal is further strengthened by the recent United States Supreme Court decision clarifying the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as yet another enormous tax bill.  The framers of the United States Constitution never intended to use taxation authority to establish social policy and then penalize Americans for not complying. In the case of the Health Care Act, the federal government will have the authority to use the Internal Revenue Service as a weapon to modify Americans’ social behavior, under the guise of misconceived benevolence.

Americans deserve to know all of the facts so they can fully understand the ramifications of this misguided, onerous monstrosity of 2,700 pages, resulting in 159 new government agencies and bureaucracies.  The sad truth is this law does little to improve health care, and is instead packed full of massive tax increases all Americans will be forced to bear.”

Included in the President’s health care law:

•    Individual Mandate Tax – defined by the Supreme Court decision.

•    3.8 percent Medicare Hospital Insurance payroll tax on investment income (capital gains and dividends) for Americans earning more than $200,000 a year or family households earning more than $250,000 a year.

•   40 percent excise tax on “Cadillac” health insurance plans costing more than $10,200 for individuals or $27,500 for families.

•    Increased payroll tax from 2.9 percent to 3.8 percent on combined employer/employee Medicare Hospital Insurance for individuals earning more than $200,000 a year and families earning more than $250,000 a year.

•    Taxes on health insurance providers based on a company’s share of the total market.

•    2.3 percent excise tax on U.S. manufactured and imported medical devices costing more than $100.

•    “Black liquor” bio-fuel tax increase.

•    Increased taxes on patients with more than 7.5 percent of their adjusted gross income spent on medical expenses.

•    Taxes on manufacturers and importers of non-generic prescription medication.

•    A limit on the amount of pre-tax income individuals can set aside in Flexible Spending Accounts to pay for expected annual health care expenses to $2,500 (previously unlimited).

•    Increased tax collections from businesses by eliminating the deductibility of paying for their retirees’ prescription drug coverage.

•  Non-prescription medication and other health care products will no longer be allowed to be paid for using the pre-tax income Americans set aside using their Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts.

•  Businesses will not be able to reduce their tax liability using lawful tax deductions or business strategies.

•  Indoor tanning services taxes.

•  Increased penalty (tax) for withdrawing money from a Health Savings Account for non-medical early withdrawals.

•  A maximum compensation limit for health insurance executives.

Rep. Allen West Statement on the United States Supreme Court Healthcare Ruling

(WASHINGTON)— Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today after the United States Supreme Court announced it has ruled to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

“The United States Supreme Court has ruled to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by extending the power of the United States Congress to tax Americans’ behavior.  This is a sad day for Americans, as they will be taxed to pay for benefits they may not need or want as part of the insurance they are forced to buy. With this decision, Congress has been granted infinite taxation power, and there are no longer any limits on what the federal government can tax its citizens to do.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will hit the middle class especially hard, as hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost as businesses try to avoid the penalties and costs created by the healthcare law. The healthcare law will cost trillions of dollars, raise costs for employers and create huge incentives for them to drop health insurance.

Benjamin Franklin did indeed state, ‘In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.’However, Dr. Franklin never envisioned the federal government would use its power of taxation to punish people for not purchasing health care.  Today, individual sovereignty in America has been defeated.”
