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-
