Our man got his committee assignments for the 112th Congress on Friday.
He’ll be on the Armed Services Committee and the Small Business Committee. Yesss!!
Obviously, West’s 22-year career experience in the military will be a huge asset to the Armed Services Committee — and thus, to our national security. We the People appreciate that!
Other than national security, West’s biggest issue has been restoring the American economy. He is passionately committed to easing the tax and regulatory burdens that make it so hard for businesses to survive, let alone grow and create new jobs. His assignment to the Small Business Committee will give him tremendous opportunity to help us in that area. We the People appreciate that!
West has not had personal experience with small business as he obviously has had with the armed services, but his wife, Angela, has an MBA and is a financial planner, so (as those of you who are married know) he cannot help but have picked up a lot about business over the years! In addition, during both his 2008 campaign and this year’s campaign, West put a lot of effort into outreach to small businesses, and did a lot of listening to business owners. We know that he is one sharp fellow — one of those bright minds who processes new things very quickly and then retains it all. He will do just as excellent a job on the Small Business Committee as he does at everything else he applies himself to!
By the way, have you noticed that everyone from Fox to CNN to the Huffington Post has been covering Allen West since November 2? I think it’s safe to say he’s had the most media exposure of any freshman Congressman. And he’s not even sworn in yet! Come January 3… oh, this is going to be good!
