How Fired Up Are You? Non-Essential Status For Our Dead Hero’s! FIRE IT UP AMERICA!

Allen West via Facebook EARLIER TODAY HAD THIS TO SAY

I don’t have the words to express my outrage. Just learned that part of the Obama administration’s shutdown strategy of inflicting pain on the American people has sunk to an incredible low. It seems our Commander-in-Chief has deemed death gratuity payments to the families of our Fallen Warriors as non-essential. The President deemed FLOTUS “Let’s move.gov” website essential but the families of the four Americans killed this weekend in Afghanistan are not essential. I am disgusted. As thankful and benevolent Americans, let’s raise money for these families. All In.

Allen West “This thing that we call the federal govt has grown leaps and bounds out of control.”

Former Florida Congressman Allen West joined ‘On the Record‘ tonight to weigh in on the continuing budget battle in Washington.  He told Greta Van Susteren that lawmakers are “playing politics” with the American people by not trying to solve the problem with the government shutdown.

The fighting in Washington continued today, as Sen. Harry Reid’s spokesperson issued a statement blasting House Speaker John Boehner for having “a credibility problem” and refusing to “come to grips with reality.”

West argued that if Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich could work together to create a budget surplus, reform welfare and Social Security, we should be able to do it today.

“We just found out that 800,000 federal employees were classified as non-essential,” West said.  “So what does that say?  It just says that this thing that we call the federal government has grown leaps and bounds out of control.”

He contended that everyone has responsibility in this fight. “I believe that the Republicans need to do a better job of articulating policy and what it means in the long term for the American people and for hard working American families out there,” West said.

“I think the Democrats have to get away from this ‘playing politics’ where they’re concerned about ‘we want to win back the House, we want to make sure we keep the Senate’ so that the president’s last two years can be like his first two years.  They’ve got to come together and understand what’s best for the American people, not what’s best for their political party.”

Allen West “Here’s another thing you can add to the list POTUS has #shutdown: a strategic policy in the Middle East to combat Islamic terrorism.

This weekend there was good and bad news for our warriors fighting against radical Islamism. Unfortunately four of our brave warriors gave the last full measure of devotion in Afghanistan. Our heartfelt condolences go out to those families who will have an empty chair at the dinner table. Our Special Operators conducted two tactical raid missions in Somalia and Libya. The operation in Libya resulted in capture of a Muslim terrorist with ties to the US Embassy attacks, al-Liby. However, he is being treated as a criminal and supposedly will be transferred to US to get lawyered up for a day in court. He should be heading to GITMO. Regardless of these successful raids, here’s another thing you can add to the list POTUS has shut down: a strategic policy in the Middle East to combat Islamic terrorism.
