If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!”
Wasserman Schultz gave a speech on the House floor earlier in the day knocking West, though not by name, for supporting conservatives’ Cut, Cap and Balance plan. “Incredulously, the gentleman from Florida who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries,” she said. “Unbelievable for a Member from South Florida.”
West also wrote in his email to the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, “You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!”
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen.

The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
