Allen West stands up against the bailout

The Wall Street bailout passed the House of Representatives earlier today, leaving many conservatives unhappy.  I think it’s safe to say we can count Allen West among their ranks:

Republican Allen West, who’s challenging Klein, says he’s opposed to the bailout because “we should not just be giving money to the same people that got us into this.” West favors capital gains tax cuts and other incentives to stimulate the flow of capital.

This mess on Wall Street will never be fixed until the underlying issues (such as the Community Reinvestment Act) are addressed and Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson, Jamie Gorelick are behind bars for their Enron-style accounting practices while heads of Fannie Mae.
