Tea party conservatives helped fuel the Republicans' stand against the Affordable Care Act – giving the GOP voices that "articulate our legislative agenda as constitutional conservatives," former Florida congressman Allen West said Thursday.

West, director of NextGeneration.TV, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" the GOP has to sharpen its "messaging" on the issues facing the nation.

"We need to have principled voices that can stand up and articulate our legislative agenda as constitutional conservatives, as the Republican Party, and why we see things such as this massive debt . . . as a threat to our national security and our economy security," he said.

And West praised the "grassroots effort" of conservatives from the House and Senate.

"The grassroots effort from Sen. [Ted] Cruz, Sen. [Mike] Lee, Sen. [Marc] Rubio and also Sen. [Rand] Paul, as well as some of the efforts you've seen coming out of the Republican Study Committee, which is the conservative House side, has brought us to this point," he said. "We should level the playing field."

West said President Barack Obama has flaunted the separation of powers when it comes to the new healthcare law.

"The legislature, they pass laws, once it gets to the president, he signs it," he said. "It's [the president's job] to implement and execute the laws, not cherry-pick the things that he wants. If the president is going to set a certain standard then it should be an equitable standard."

And to his claim there’s no widespread evidence the healthcare law is hurting jobs or the economy, West charged: "The president is lying to the American people."

"He has a bully pulpit," West said. "He has a complicit media. But the American people know what's going on and the gig is up."
