Freshman Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., opposes President Barack Obama’s new healthcare law, but he doesn’t support the Republican Party’s effort to defund it bit by bit. So he voted last week against a bill to eliminate funding for part of the law, The Hill reports.

Allen West, healthcare“He voted to repeal Obamacare, and it was dead on arrival in the Senate,” West spokeswoman Angela Sachitano told the news service. “He questions what the goal is of chipping away like this if it’s almost certain that the Senate is not going to take it up.”

West “believes there are bigger funding issues to be focusing on right now including the numerous developments in the Middle East, concerning Pakistan and whether there is a link to [Osama bin Laden] and the recent unity agreement with the [Palestinian Authority] and Fatah and Hamas," Sachitano said.
