The Florida Republican complained about how the House GOP leadership “sold us down the road” and ditched “a good piece of legislation that took care of it for one year,” by accepting the Senate’s “two-month extension which was absolutely pathetic policy.”

“I mean, we can’t do tax policy that way,” he said.

West said he plans to make it an issue when he returns to Congress.

“So, when we get back to Washington, D.C., the first House GOP conference, we’re going to have to have some serious discussions about how do we get ourselves on the same sheet of music. Because, we really felt that our leadership did not stand against the Senate Republican leadership,” he said.
