Allen West: I can not support this concession ( Payroll Tax Cut Deal )

Here is Florida Congressman's Allen West response from his Facebook page to the the Payroll Tax Cut deal reached today between the senate and house republicans:

The conference lasted less than 15 minutes and we were not allowed to ask questions. We were told that by unanimous consent the House will pass the Senate Amendment with a correction to the new payroll reporting procedures. Harry Reid agreed to appoint conferees but we were not told any timeline for this move.

I cannot support this, but it seems the politics of demagoguery have won over policy and principle with the concession to enact tax policy on two-month basis.

This is a sad day for America and further evidences our continuing decline. Men and women of principle are become a dying breed in this Republic...
