Allen West: ‘Tax code punitive measure to grow Washington’

Lt. Col. and former Congressman Allen West appeared with Greta Van Susteren “On The Record” Friday night to discuss the fact that while middle-America suffers, Washington has become a boom town and its politicians are living “high on the hog.”

“One of the things that you learn in the military is that leadership is about setting an example,” West said.

“What we see right now,” he continued, “is the tax code being used as a punitive measure to grow Washington, D.C., to grow bigger government and then to redistribute wealth based upon their own ideological beliefs.”
