Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is a burr under the Democratic Party’s saddle. He calls it like he sees it, and the socialist take umbrage. Does anyone remember the reaction by the Congressional Progressive Caucus when he called them a bunch of communist?
The congressman has made another observation that will without a doubt draw recriminations from the entitlement party:
“Conservatives believe that every person who comes to America or is born here, they have a ladder that they are given as their birthright or becoming a citizen,” he said. “Sometimes you fall off of that ladder, but we believe that there is a safety net that is there, and that safety net is to catch you and get you to bounce back up and continue to climb on the ladder. That’s what conservatives believe.
“But liberals tend to believe that the safety net is a hammock, so you can stay there the rest of your life.”
Get ready for some flak from the hammocks Congressman West.
