Despite the millions in false attacks from George Soros, the Murphy family, and national liberals, you’ve stood shoulder to shoulder with me and I want to thank you.
Here’s the deal. In these final days, they’re not likely to back down and their desperation will continue to grow. In order to fight back and ensure we have the resources to win, we set an online fundraising goal of $1 million and 12,000 donations for October.
I don’t back down from a fight and I know you don’t either. In the next 3 days, we need toraise another $75,000 to counterattack on the airwaves.
As you know, we are a top target for national liberals and we are finally seeing what we expected all along: millions in negative attack ads. The DCCC and liberal Super PACs are going up with ads this week repeating the tired lies about a war on women and Medicare. It is only a matter of time until Patrick Murphy’s dad launches more attacks likely to be as nasty as his ad depicting me beating women.
With 7 weeks to go until the election, now’s the time totake action! Will you be one of the 750 supporters who contributes $10 or one of the 500 supporters who contributes $20 and helps us reach our goal: AllenWestForCongress.Com
We have run a strong campaign. We have unapologetically stood for conservative principles against an onslaught from the corrupt liberal media and we continue to draw a clear contrast with my liberal opponent—a man so inept and ignorant on the issues he refuses real debates and hides from the public.
(WASHINGTON)-— Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today on the Temporary Extension of the Payroll Tax:
“Americans once again have reason to be ashamed with their elected officials as President Barack Obama and United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are playing a game of chicken for political gain at the expense of the American people suffering under failed economic policies. This two month amendment proposed today is nothing more than a short-term band aid. Americans are looking for certainty and confidence in the American economy and today’s substitute amendment passed by the Senate delivers neither to the American people.
The United States Senate continues to let down the American people, more than 950 days without accomplishing even the most basic of responsibilities to pass a budget and ignoring more than 25 job creating bills passed on a bipartisan basis by the House of Representatives. The Senate’s Substitute Amendment to Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2011 H.R. 3630 is nothing but typical liberal Democrat incrementalism and political gimmickry to continue to debate these issues into the election year.
I will not be voting for this short term fix when it comes to the floor of the House of Representatives. I will only vote to reaffirm the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act as passed by the House of Representatives.
The Senate’s Substitute Amendment is yet another disappointment to the American people. Our nation is desperately seeking leadership in our Nation’s Capital not crises management. I stand ready to return to Capitol Hill and stay there until will get the mission done.”
