First Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, on The House floor, "The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries -- unbelievable from a member from South Florida." Then Allen West replied, in an email, 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 U.S. 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!" Florida Reps. Allen West, Debbie Wasserman Schultz clash - Los Angeles Times Sounds a bit like an over-reaction to me - but I'm a liberal, what do I know.
