Allen believes in protecting social security…
Mr. West cares about the American people. As a Veteran, a Father and a Congressman, he is focused on repairing the future for U.S. taxpayers. Allen focuses on restoring social security to the independent trust fund account. Social security has been wasted in the general operating account. Unemployment rises in America directly affect social security as the account sees fewer payments. Mr. West pushes for private sector growth in order to create jobs and in time, replenish the social security fund. Congressman West will make strides to protect the future of Americans.

Mr. West’s stance on Tax Reform
Congressman West recognizes that our current tax code is a nightmare. American citizens and businesses spend an estimated 6.1 billion hours and $431 billion dollars working to make sure they are in compliance with the current tax code. Congressman West supports creating a flat tax that is easier to understand and easier to pay.
We cannot continue to punish those who work for a living, and that’s what the Obama Administration is set to do. In January, the largest tax increase in American history will be applied to those who work for a living. Congressman West believes this is wrong. He believes that a flat tax system, having citizens taxed only once, is the most fair and easiest system to enforce.
Taxes are job killers. In our current economy, we need more jobs. Our unemployment rate is one of the highest since the Great Depression. American people WANT to work. It is, after all, the American dream. Congressman West recognizes that reducing taxes, simplifying the tax structure, and encouraging job creation is the best way to get people back to work.
Congressman West has stated that he will support three deductions when it comes to taxes: a charitable contribution deduction, a child tax credit, and a mortgage deduction. We want our citizens to have children and own their own homes. Congressman West understands the American dream; a home, a family, a job. With the Government stepping back and allowing a simple tax system it will free up funds to create the jobs needed, and then we then can return to the days of enjoying the American dream.
Mr. West’s stance on Immigration Reform
Congressman West believes that illegal immigration affects all American citizens by effecting healthcare, schools, unemployment, and crime rates. Congressman West believes that our first priority should be to protect our borders and have a serious border patrol program and enforcement policy in place.
Most recently, in the summer of 2012, when the Obama Administration halted the deportation to illegal immigrants under the age of 30 who arrived here before they turned 16, Congressman West spoke out against this. Congressman West called this another example of the Obama Administration overreaching their authority. According to Congressman West, “This should have been brought up as legislation within the Homeland Security Committee both in the House and Senate.”
Congressman West understands that our healthcare system in America is the best in the world but is not without its problems. He believes that the treatment of pre-existing conditions should be addressed, as well as every American having access to and the ability to pay for the services provided.
Obamacare, according to Congressman West, addresses a few of these issues but is, overall, not the route we should be taking as a Country to fix our current healthcare system. As he states, “Obamacare took a few good ideas and loaded them down with thousands of pages of bad ones.”
Congressman West does not believe that all Americans should be forced to purchase health insurance – or pay a tax if they don’t. He also believes that the IRS (and the hiring for thousands of new agents) has nothing to do with fixing healthcare. And he voted to repeal Obamacare time and time again. However, it continues to be held up, against the majority of American’s wishes in the current Democrat controlled Senate.
Congressman West believes that we should replace the current system with reforms that will help the American people by lowering overall costs, encourage wellness (rather than just treating illness) and allowing Americans to make their own choices about healthcare and insurance coverage, including allowing insurance to be purchased across state lines to save Americans money and encouraging healthy competition between insurance providers. He understands the importance of Health Savings Accounts and Flex Spending Accounts, both of which have come under attack by the Obama Administration and Democrats in the House and Senate. Congressman West believes the American people should be able to save their money, tax free, to pay for their medical expenses.
We need this common sense approach in the US House, and Congressman West is someone who we believe will stand up for the American people and their freedom to choose whatever they want when it comes to their health.
