With only a couple days before Congressman Allen West’s term in the Congress concludes, West put out a statement that he would not support the Senate-passed ‘fiscal cliff’ legislation, were he afforded the opportunity to vote on it in the House of Representatives.

West statement comes hours after Florida Senator Marco Rubio and seven other Senators voted against the measure in the Senate.

Congressman West called the tax raising compromise coming out of the Senate as “illogical and disrespectful to all hard-working American families.”

Here is Congressman Allen West’s full statement regarding the Senate’s ‘fiscal cliff’ compromise with President Obama-

As I did my 7-mile run along the DC mall this morning I pondered where we are fiscally as a nation. We continue to have unserious band-aid type solutions to a very serious problem. I reviewed the Senate-passed legislation, and as it stands I will not support it if brought to the House floor.

    “As I did my 7-mile run along the DC mall this morning …”

    7 miles? In one morning? It takes me a week to do that. As a matter of fact, after I read that sentence, I had to sit down and drink some water.

    Anyway- West is right.
    These assmonkeys don’t even think passed themselves. What about their great grand kids? Their nieces and nephews? Hell, even their pets! But they don’t care, because they know that in a few years their old asses will be dead or demented in some tax payer run “Home For The Constitutionally Retarded.”

    MJA: LOL! I broke out into a sweat reading your comment. LOL!!

    Liberals seem to think that Conservatives will just wave a white flag and cave. They seem to forget 2010. They seem to forget the outrage over Obamacare. They seem to forget that it isn’t Conservatism that caves in to them, but the RINO establishment GOP. Conservatives now have two adversaries and we’re fighters. We’ll kick those RINO asses out of the GOP, and then defeat the Liberals at the ballot box. We fight. And we fight hard. And we will fight back. Because we have something worth fighting for. And those pussies in the Democrat Socialist Party will not know what hit them.

    “With only a couple days before Congressman Allen West’s term in the Congress concludes…”

    Remember the first line when thinking there’s a time warp in the statements. Col. West DID indeed vote against the senate bill as did Marco Rubio and six other Florida congressmen.

    By today’s standards, “successful” means “has a job.”

    I just wish to speak for the United Piglets of America and express my thanks to the Republican Party for redistricting Allen West into a Democrat district.
