House Majority Leader Eric Cantor could barely contain his disgust with the hypocrisy and lies coming from Dems when he spoke on the House floor, earlier today. Specifically, he objected to Dems railing against corporate loopholes, pretending that the Republicans support them when they know from their negotiations that Republicans are open to tax reform, (not that eliminating loopholes would make much of a dent in our massive debt).
But lies and demagoguery are all Dems got, and happens to be Wasserman-Schultz’s specialty.
Congressman West was so disgusted by Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz for directing her brazen demagoguery at him when he was no longer on the floor, he fired off this email in a fit of pique and rage.

Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
Guess I should have mentioned: GOP Passes Cut, Cap and Balance Act:
Paul Ryan declares victory:
“The House of Representatives continues to advance serious solutions to get our budget on the path to balance and our economy on the path to prosperity. The Cut, Cap and Balance legislation passed today cuts $5.8 trillion in spending over the next decade, locks in those savings with enforceable caps on spending, and forces Washington to finally live within its means with a Balanced Budget Amendment.
“The coming debt crisis is the single most predictable economic disaster in the history of this nation. Unfortunately, the White House refuses to put forth a credible plan to solve our spending problem, and Senate Democrats have not passed a budget in over 800 days. I remain hopeful that responsible leaders will work with us to advance specific solutions that uphold our solemn commitment to leave the next generation with a stronger, more prosperous nation than the one we inherited.”
