Rep. Allen West Supports Socialized Healthcare?

So, Fox News' Greta Van Susterenenenenenen, invited outspoken and REALLY douchey Tea Party Congressman, Allen West (R-FL) on her show Wednesday night to discuss the lawsuit being brought by President Obama regarding Ohio's military voting law. West made a statement that didn't really have much to do with the broader topic of voting rights, but it was worth highlighting (skip to 5:43):

And I will tell you this is a continuing episode because we have a president who, early in his administration, talked about our wounded warriors, they should go out and get private health insurance. So this a theme that has occurred where it seems that our military gets a backhanded slap. 

I really doubt that Obama has advocated such a thing in the past, though I could be wrong. But of course, what Obama did or didn't advocate is irrelevant here. Here we have a Republican, a Tea Party Republican, in fact, arguing AGAINST the free market and implicitly advocating evil socialized health care? Really? And you're saying Obama's the one that hates the troops? Time to add another member to your secret list of secret communists in congress, Allen.

Oh, and for the record,  congressman, I'm pretty sure you're confusing the President's supposed stance on hating the troops, with your own candidate's.
