@AllenWest “Steadfast and Loyal, Sen. Ted Cruz, I got your back”

OBK AW 2013

by Allen West via Facebook

A hearty congratulations to Texas Senator Ted Cruz for being a man of principle who is fulfilling his oath to the people of Texas and the American people. In the face of incessant criticism and betrayal from his own party — something I know about –he has persevered and stood up for this Constitutional Republic. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) also known as Obamacare is an abomination, an onerous piece of legislation passed in the middle of the night, strictly partisan, and as a Democrat leader articulated, “we must pass the bill in order to find out what is in it.” The American people, and labor unions, now know what is in it. And don’t ignore the unconstitutional delays enacted by President Obama. I want you all to ponder the waivers and exemptions granted, a sure evidence of cronyism, not to mention the unnecessary cuts to MEDICARE for seniors. And even as Lois Lerner retires, Obamacare will hire 16 THOUSAND new IRS agents. Steadfast and Loyal Senator Cruz, I got your back.


@AllenWest “How deplorable. Now, if it were House Speaker Allen West, this is how I would”


by Allen West via Facebook

President Obama quite obviously fails to understand the difference between politics and policy, and instead misinterprets legislative procedure as “messin’ wit me.” How deplorable. Now, if it were House Speaker Allen West, (who did get two votes by the way), this is how I would be ready to respond to Harry Reid’s foolishness: I would have a bill ready to fund the government with a 6-Continuing Resolution (CR), at current spending levels, that includes a delay in implementation of the individual mandate aligned with delay of the employer mandate to Jan 2015. The six-month CR would also have attached a provision to rescind all 2000 previously granted waivers and exemptions to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and no subsidies or exemptions for Members of and staff of US Congress. Also, the CR would require subsidy verification for individuals entering into government exchanges. Lastly, the CR would have attached a provision to stop the mandatory PPACA cuts to MEDICARE, estimated to be around $270B and no funding for additional 16k IRS agents called for by PPACA. And Speaker Boehner, feel free to adopt this legislative proposal, there is no idea patent law here. President Obama, this is not a case of “messin’ wit ya” – this is how I learned about statesmanship from former Rep. E Clay Shaw Jr.


Allen West’s Weekly Update “America Has Crossed The ‘Red Line” on @Next_GenTV @PJTV

America Has Crossed The ‘Red Line’
It’s a millstone of debt, not a milestone to celebrate


Greetings to all Americans, and here we are for another installment of the Next Generation weekly update.

We launched our “Next Generation Today” programming this week. Our pilot episode will give you a taste of the great content to come as we develop the show. Please watch it and share your feedback. Let us know what you like and what else you want to see in the future. Michelle, John and I appreciate your comments. Please keep them coming.

We also updated the Next Generation Data Card, which we encourage you to download here. We will update this card monthly to give you a quick snapshot of several key economic indicators.

Economic perspective from the CBO

Speaking of our economy, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released yet another alarming report this week. CBO’s forecast for America is bleak, as the office analyzed our growing debt and its relationship to our gross domestic product. America now finds herself with a greater debt than GDP. In other words, we owe more than we produce.Economists will tell you the figurative “red line” that marks excessive debt is around 90 percent of debt to GDP. We have eclipsed that threshold.

Even more alarming is that if we add our unfunded liabilities – the mandatory spending for programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security – we have far exceeded the threshold. And that was the crux of the CBO report – that we must reform mandatory spending programs and get them under control.

The CBO also found that 7 million to 8 million Americans could lose their employer-based healthcare benefits thanks to the president’s plan. Remember, the law was touted in 2010 as only costing American taxpayers $940 billion. CBO later revised that cost to $1.1 trillion and just this week revised the cost to $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years.

I suppose it was as then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”


Michelle Fields Joined Eric Bolling 1-25-13 Responds to Report that Medicare Paid $120M for Inmates


Medicare paid more than $120 million from 2009 to 2011 for claims from inmates and undocumented residents, violating federal law, according to a pair of reports by HHS’ Office of Inspector General, Politico reports.

According to the reports, nearly 3,000 undocumented residents filed thousands of claims resulting in $91.6 million in Medicare payments. In addition, 11,600 inmates submitted more than 75,000 claims resulting in $33.6 million in Medicare payments.

WATCH: Rep Allen West “My opponent Patrick Murphy and I have very different plans for the country”


My opponent Patrick Murphy and I have very different plans for the country.

Murphy’s plan includes the largest tax increase in history for the Middle Class, $716 billion in cuts to Medicare, and job-crushing regulations and taxes on small business.

We’re 12 days out from the election and we need to make sure every voter is familiar with Patrick Murphy’s dangerous policies.

Patrick Murphy’s Plans to Cut Medicare – Watch – Via Allen West for Congress

We can’t let President Obama and Patrick Murphy cut $716 Billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. This cut would mean long lines, seniors losing their doctors, and bureaucrats making healthcare decisions for seniors. 

That’s their plan and I’m committed to stopping it dead in it’s tracks.

We’re taking the message straight to the airwaves. You can see the TV Ad here and we’re counting on 500 supporters today to give $35 to help keep this ad on the air.

We must get our message out and win in November if we’re going to stop these disastrous cuts and the Obama/Pelosi/Murphy big government agenda. Thank you for your help.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen West

P.S. We’re counting on your contribution of $35 to stop the Murphy/Obama Medicare cuts.

Allen West Accepts League of Women Voters Forum in Fort Pierce – Will Murphy Run and Hide?

Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress confirmed that due to Congressional schedule changes, Allen West will participate in a candidate forum with Democrat nominee Patrick Murphy hosted by The League of Women Voters of St. Lucie County. The forum will be held at the St. Lucie County Commissioners Chamber at 2300 Virginia Avenue in Ft. Pierce on Thursday, October 4th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. It is open to the public.

“Though Patrick Murphy continues to duck real debates, I am pleased voters will have the opportunity to finally compare the candidates on substance.  I have been calling for multiple debates since August and while this isn’t a debate, at least it is an opportunity for voters to hear from both candidates.  I hope Patrick Murphy still decides to attend,” said Allen West.
According to Allen West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson, “We can only imagine the fear and anxiety coming from Patrick Murphy’s campaign now that we have accepted the invitation to participate in the League of Women Voters forum next week. Patrick Murphy has done everything he possibly can to avoid actually facing voters and defending his positions on the failed economic policies of Obama and Pelosi, but that ends on Thursday.
Murphy’s entire campaign has consisted of racist smears, lies and every poll-tested talking point you would expect to hear from a politician.   We know Patrick Murphy is too ignorant to talk about the issues and defend his support for Obamacare and its $700 billion cut to Medicare.  We know Murphy’s family business profited from the failed stimulus, brought in foreign workers to do the jobs of Americans, and is named in a class action lawsuit for installing dangerous Chinese drywall.  Taken together with the latest revelation that Patrick Murphy was arrested for public intoxication and possession of stolen property after being thrown out of a South Beach Miami nightclub for fighting and verbally assaulting police officers, it becomes increasing clear why Murphy wants to hide.    
Without the protection of his father’s millions and left-wing Super PACs, voters will finally be able to see Patrick Murphy for who he really is: the emptiest of empty suits.  Will Murphy show, or will he run and hide?”

VIDEO: “Patrick Murphy Doesn’t Belong in the Same Room as Allen West”

Stuart, FL – Today, Allen West for Congress released its latest television ad of the campaign titled “Veterans.”

“The contrast between a liberal rubber stamp and empty suit that is Patrick Murphy and the decorated combat veteran and principled leader Allen West is clearly explained in the heartfelt testimony of area veterans,” says West for Congress Campaign Manager Tim Edson. “The veterans who risked their lives for this nation have no doubt who is qualified to lead in Congress and who is fit to serve — and it certainly isn’t Patrick Murphy.  

As one veteran so succinctly puts it, ‘Here’s a man who never put on the uniform, and he’s telling Allen West that he’s a coward? He doesn’t belong in the same room as Allen West.’

Patrick Murphy has called Allen West a coward but hides behind racist, negative attack ads financed by his father, whines when the truth about his family’s business dealings are exposed and runs from public debates where voters will be able to hear for themselves about his plans to gut Medicare and further weaken the economy. This ad lays out a clear choice for voters.”

Good News and Bad News – For Congressman Allen West – Will You Step Up To the Plate?

Good news and bad news.

Since Allen sent his email, we’ve raised $50,000 and counting. We’re well on our way to exceeding our goal. Thanks for your help!

Now the bad news. Just this morning a liberal SuperPac announced they were pouring in another million dollars into the district and Patrick Murphy announced he’s deploying Sandra Fluke, the poster child for the left’s efforts to increase government dependency, to the Treasure Coast.

Thanks again,


Dear Friend,

I don’t back down from a fight and I know you don’t either. In the next 3 days, we need toraise another $75,000 to counterattack on the airwaves.

As you know, we are a top target for national liberals and we are finally seeing what we expected all along: millions in negative attack ads. The DCCC and liberal Super PACs are going up with ads this week repeating the tired lies about a war on women and Medicare. It is only a matter of time until Patrick Murphy’s dad launches more attacks likely to be as nasty as his ad depicting me beating women.

With 7 weeks to go until the election, now’s the time to take action! Will you be one of the 750 supporters who contributes $10 or one of the 500 supporters who contributes $20 and helps us reach our goal: https://www.allenwestforcongress.com/contribute/?
