Allen West on C-SPAN's Washington Journal


U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, was on C-SPAN's Washington Journal this morning, and he covered a lot of ground: the GOP and White House plans to create jobs, funding the government, the so-called "Super Committee," and deficit reduction. One caller asked him about the "pugilistic" nature of some of the interactions he's had in his time in Congress. As a former solder, he said, "there's a certain amount you can take, and you finally have to stand up for your own honor."
