Rep. Allen West pulled no punches in his biting critique of President Obama's handling of the debt ceiling negotiations. In this interview with CNSNews, the Congressman decried Obama's implied threat that social security checks might not go out if the debt ceiling is not raised, and referred once again to this lapse in leadership as "sad, pathetic, fear mongering."
Rep. West draws upon his experience as a military officer to describe how any executive with managerial experience learns to prioritize resources. Rep. West believes the President must find a way to extend current revenues such that seniors and veterans continue to receive their benefits regardless of the debt ceiling.
