He calls 'em like he sees 'em. That's why I have so much respect for him:
Rep. West: Democratic handouts an 'insidious form of slavery'
Though I understand what he's trying to convey, I have a bit of a problem with his comparing those who take food stamps and Medicaid and free cell service and free job training programs and free child care with a great big smile on their faces to the utter debasements inherent in the institution of slavery.
But Congressman West has guts saying what most of us feel.
Here's hoping he goes far.
