I only have a moment, but I wanted to update you on what is happening and why we are still in session on Capitol Hill.
As you have heard, there is a standoff now regarding the extension of the payroll tax cut. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and their friends in the Obama Administration want to once again “kick the can down the road” and only extend the cut for two months.
At the same time, like a Christmas tree, they’ve added things like weakening unemployment insurance reforms and curbs on President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional health care law.
My colleagues in the House of Representatives and I are standing strong. But some “Leaders” are too ready to compromise and want to play the “go along to get along” Washington, D.C. game.
I’ll never compromise my principles for political gain.
The people of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District didn’t send me to Washington, D.C just to follow the herd and behave. They wanted a strong voice — our voice – in the Halls of Congress speaking up for real reform and common sense conservative values.
And we won’t let them down.
My outspoken character has made me a lot of enemies in the establishment in Washington, D.C. The Democrats take every opportunity to ridicule our conservative army and its beliefs.
But as I have written before, I will stand and fight and we will win, thanks to friends like you.
There are only 11 days left in our campaign’s fundraising period. We need each and every supporter to step forward today because we can see the battlefield ahead and we need everyone to do their part for our conservative army.
Thank you so much for your support.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Congressman Allen B. West (R-FL)
Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired
