House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi questioned the patriotism of a Republican congressman who is also an Army veteran and West Point graduate, over remarks he made about budget cuts.

U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan. first started something of a war of words with the White House when he voiced his support for the sequester, calling it “a home run” to Politico after the president’s State of the Union address.

“When I say it’s a home run, I wish we’d reduce spending more,” said Pompeo according to Wichita NBC affiliate KSN News. “It’s not a grand slam. We still have a long ways to go.”

Pelosi disagreed and went so far as to question his patriotism.

“Democrats — we want solutions, Republicans want sequestration,” Pelosi said during a Thursday briefing. “Some of them have even called it a home run. That doesn’t sound like anybody on Team America if they think sequestration’s indiscriminate, mindless cuts across the board are a home run.”
