Too much incompetence from Obama to believe it’s not intentional

Obama---a-wink-and-a-nod_s640x427

I’m back in DC for three days and therefore did my usual early morning run. As I ran past the Capitol and along the mall, I had an interesting thought. Since everyone has Oprah on the mind right now, remember when she referred to then-Senator Barack Obama as “brilliant”?

While running, I thought about the Obamacare disaster and if President Obama is so brilliant, how do you explain this abject failure? I began to ask myself, is this truly incompetence or possibly intentional — or both?

Obamacare is facing countless issues and the website is not really the most critical of the issues. The whole plan is based upon the flawed premise of forcing more young and healthy into exchanges to actually fund and subsidize, lower income and less healthy Americans.

More and more it appears that Obamacare has an intentional purpose of destabilizing and destroying the insurance market. There seems to be evidence of full knowledge of the adverse effects of millions of Americans being dropped from their individual healthcare plans, even as the President was stating Americans could keep their plans.

Allen West “This left me speechless”

westpac-logo

Friends, this left me speechless.

This week White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked which of the scandals currently plaguing the White House President Obama thought was “phony.” Shockingly…he had a very specific answer. Benghazi and the IRS.

Carney answered, “Whether it’s about the attacks in Benghazi and the talking points, or revelations about conduct at the IRS — that attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed.”

I’m enraged that our Commander-in-Chief feels that the American people’s concern over what happened in Benghazi is “phony.” And further, President Obama should outraged by the warrantless targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. No one has attempted to make these events into scandals…those inside his administration who perpetrated these crimes did all the work.

Patriots, don’t settle for less. Demand leaders with integrity, strong work ethic, and conservative principles.

Consider this…the White House didn’t just call the Benghazi and the IRS scandals “phony,” they also called them “not of the highest priority.”

In their own words in the very same press conference: “While important, are not of the highest priority to the American people.”

I can’t think of two topics more worthy of the attention of the American people.

As former military commander, I knew I had to have my priorities straight or the people it was my job to protect were going to die. If our President doesn’t believe what happened in Benghazi or the gross violation of our Constitution by IRS are not a priorities of the American people….he shouldn’t be our President! 

I created the Allen West Guardian Fund for one purpose: to ensure we have leaders Washington who will stand as guardians of our Constitutional republic and change the face of American leadership. I’m not ready to settle for second-rate leaders who have priorities that are seriously out-touch with the American people.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen West
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

PS: Benghazi and the IRS — I can’t think of two topics more worthy of the attention of the American people. Please, help me realign the priorities of leaders in Washington by making an immediate contribution right now.

@RepTomPrice speaks with @AllenWest about the IRS’ ability to enforce Obamacare

West N Price

Rep. Tom Price of Georgia’s 6th Congressional District is determined to limit the IRS’ ability to enforce the Affordable Care Act, and talks to Col. West about the two-page bill he introduced in the House that would do just that. In addition, Col. West takes advantage of Rep. Price’s background as a physician to ask about the heartbreaking case of the 10-year-old girl denied a lung transplant over the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network’s “Under-12” rule. Can government bureaucracies keep pace with medical science?

5/12/13 – Former Congressman Allen West on Sunday (R-FL) said that an admission by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that it had improperly scrutinized tea party groups was part of a wider conspiracy that included President Barack Obama’s administration forcing Republican-owned car dealerships to be shut down during the auto bailout in 2009.

Fox News host Alisyn Camerota asked West if he had any indications that the recently-revealed IRS practice of examining whether tea party groups were abusing their tax-exempt status was not limited to “rogue, low-level IRS agents in the Cincinnati office who thought that they were going to personally stick it to the tea party.”

“Well, of course,” the tea party-favorite Republican declared. “The most important thing we need to come to understand is your First Amendment rights is you have the right to petition the government for redress of your grievances. If we start to have a government that is targeting certain groups for their political ideology because they don’t believe it is in concert with their beliefs, this is Orwellian, to put it in the least manner.” “We’ve got to come back and have hearings on this,” he continued. “This is something that is criminal.”

Camerota wondered if West knew why the IRS had been asking tea party groups for their donor lists.

“One of the things you have to understand with those donor lists — and this is something that was brought up before the Small Business and also the Oversight Committee when I was there in Congress — they are after those lists because they want to put a lot of pressure on individuals,” West explained. “And there are a lot of folks out there concerned about coming out and being forthcoming about their support to political candidates and what have you.”

“There were a lot of automobile dealerships that were closed down because people found out who they were providing funds and support to, when you go back and look at that auto bailout.”

As part of Chrysler’s bailout deal with the U.S. government in 2008, the company agreed to close about a quarter of its 3,200 dealerships. By 2009, conservative media outlets like The Washington Examiner and Fox News were suggesting that the Obama administration had been disproportionately targeting Republican-owned dealers.

But FactCheck.org looked into the claims in September of 2009 and found that the “best evidence shows that dealerships with Republican donors weren’t disproportionately targeted — auto dealers overall tend to lean overwhelmingly Republican.” And even a Fox News study determined that “the data do not support the charges.”

“Nobody has bothered to look up data for the control group: the list of dealerships which aren’t being closed,” FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver wrote in 2009. “It turns out that all car dealers are, in fact, overwhelmingly more likely to donate to Republicans than to Democrats — not just those who are having their doors closed.”

“Overall, 88 percent of the contributions from car dealers went to Republican candidates and just 12 percent to Democratic candidates,” Silver pointed out. “There’s no conspiracy here, folks — just some bad math.”

Rep Allen West meets with IRS; discusses Taxpayer Identity Fraud in South Florida

(WASHINGTON)–  Congressman Allen West (R-FL) met with representatives from the Internal Revenue Service this week to discuss solutions to the growing number of taxpayer identity fraud cases in South Florida. Federal Trade Commission reports show tax-related identity fraud continues to plague the United States, most notably South Florida, where more than half of the 20,000 Florida identity fraud cases to the IRS have been detected.

“It has become too easy and far too common for criminals to obtain the taxpayer identification numbers of people and file fraudulently in their name,” West said.   “Today’s meeting with the IRS allowed me to hear directly from the agency as to what investigators are doing to prevent this crime.  I challenge the IRS to determine a more efficient system for tracking who these criminals are and how they are obtaining taxpayer identification numbers.”

IRS leaders discussed with Congressman West several new systems implemented this year to identify and track fraud, including a “detection code” assigned to suspicious filings.

“I can assure you, we are getting better everyday,” Jodi Patterson, Director of Return Integrity with the IRS, told Congressman West.  “This is a top priority for the IRS.”

Patterson also assured Congressman West the IRS is improving its system for how operators handle taxpayers who believe their identity has been stolen.

“We have spent a great deal of time training our operators on how to interact and best help expedite the reporting process, ” Patterson said.  

West asked the IRS to report back to him at the end of April on improvements the IRS has made over last year, including a report of indicators and warnings the IRS has discovered through its investigation. West also encouraged the IRS to work with local law enforcement to better track down criminals on a local level.

“Our local law enforcement is well aware of this problem and they want to be involved,” West said.  “I am confident the IRS is listening to our concerns and will continue tracking down these criminals until this problem is solved.”
