Weekly Republican Address 9/15/12: Rep. Allen West (R-FL)

I truly admire Congressman Allen West of Florida but this GOP address is maddening! If you will recall, House Speaker Boehner agreed to this deal last year and Congress approved it. Now, they're crying about it because the day of reckoning is approaching. Well, who voted for it? Why didn't Congress stand up last year and refuse this deal? Why didn't they refuse to increase the debt limit instead of agreeing to gut our military? It's all so disgusting and was completely avoidable.

YouTube description: In this week's address, Congressman Allen West, a Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel, discusses the deadline for the sequester, and the White House's devastating inaction on what was originally their idea. The Republican-led House has proposed responsible replacements to the sequester's historically crippling across-the-board cuts to our nation's military. The recent vicious attacks on embassies in the Middle East underscore the need to preserve our military strength. The president and Senate Democrats must put aside partisan politics to work with us to preserve our military and replace the sequester.
