You gotta love Congressman Allen West (R-FL). Love him because the mainstream media and the DC establishment HATE him. He says what needs to be said, and he backs up his talk with votes. A real rarity in DC, these days ..
Anyway, West shared some really interesting information on Facebook, comparing the federal spending approved in 2002 by a GOP-controlled House with that approved by a GOP-controlled House in 2012:
Wow. * Conservatism AT ITS BEST. * Everything’s up BUT family income. What happened to the spending cuts we got promised by those Republicans who voted for the federal debt ceiling? (Renee?)
I like how Rep. West put it:
For those who continue to complain that “We the People”, mainly conservatives, are cutting government too much, this should put everything into perspective. I know liberal progressives dislike me because we promulgate the truth which for them is like sunlight on a vampire. America, we are becoming a socialist egalitarian welfare nanny state and hardworking American taxpayers are on the road to Serfdom.
We need to clone him 534 times. Congress would be a much better place.
