Allen West Does Not Practiceth What He Preacheth

Congressman-elect Allen West has been extremely critical of the idea of government sponsored health care. From a comment in The Hill on West joining the CBC:

West is hypocritical to question national health insurance, while having taken advantage of a VA healthcare system where everything is owned by the government and everyone works for the government.

It’s absurd to claim to be a spokesman for free enterprise when you choose a professional career of living off the government teat and are now trying to get another “gummint” job.

I have nothing to add to that.
