Jason,Proceed representative.Your uncompromising
policies are working.Your base is shrinking2008, 2012,
2016 and counting.
he is a void no ideas just say no. it does not work. both groups need to do the
thing they dont want to. all taxes need to be raised and cuts need to be made.
but not just benifits for people the military is being forced to increase tanks
and other weapons they dont want.to talk about pork. some of these are
made in places repulicans are in like ohio. obama won ohio because they got more
auto jobs. real jobs not just weapons making. work for the people party guys not
corporations. we should out law the party system it divides us.
"(BO's) ideology is what it is and he can stick to it," Peterson
said. "We do the same and we get demonized."Thank's
what now, for proving her correct.
Wish I was paid $175,000.00 a year to do nothing except interviews, and
campaigning. Oh yeah, complaining that democrats won't do what he says.I wish Jason sat down near me at a diner, so I could ask what he has
done for America?It wouldn't take long for his answer.
Hold your ground and values. Vote against everything J-Man. I'm nearing
retirement and need to build up my 401K. Sold 30% of my equities when the Dow
hit the 14,000 high. Need you to continue your game plan so the market goes down
and I can reinvest low. I'm not sure if your my Congress person now,
as your affiliation keeps moving the boundaries. Since you and your are your
party are so much into "Winning", please win one for me. Thank you in
advance for your assitance in this matter.
Thank you to our representatives and Senators for protecting the rights and the
power of the people of the State of Utah.
So what this article calls out is that America deserves the goverment it has.
It's unlikely the GOP will win the presidency in 2016 as well, so we should
expect this divided goverment to continue which means more deficits and little
movement on the social issues of the day. That old saying of "divided we
fall" is being played out for all of us to see.
The more the nation gets to see Obama's failed policies and the billions he
spends "practicing" with the nations taxes, the less likely ANY
democrats will be elected in the 2014 elections. Senatorial seats that
democrats hold will likely be replaced with Republicans. Obama has
run out of the extra taxes he coaxed from the "millionaires", now
he'll be coming after all the rest of us.Many thanks to
Congressman Chaffetz for at least slowing down the rate of Obama's spending
This isn't about compromise. This is about total control. Obama wants to
socialize this country. Obama wants to provide amnesty (and citizenship!) to
millions of illegal aliens. Obama wants to control guns and remove our right to
own the weapons we choose to own. Obama wants to send this nation to fiscal
catastrophe by spending us to oblivion. These are issues I with which I would
never compromise. I expect my elected representatives to not compromise either.
A Gallup poll conducted last year found that 40% of Americans consider
themselves conservative, 35% consider themselves independent, and 21% consider
themselves liberal. The survey leaves some questions: If truly 40%
consider themselves conservative, did Obama win the election by winning the
independents?Is it realistic, with 40% of Americans considering
themselves to be conservative, for GOP congressmen to feel obligated to
represent so many Americans in Congress by denying Obama his very liberal
agenda?Or, should GOP congressmen simply bow to Obama and liberals
and give them whatever they want, even though 40% of Americans identify
themselves as conservative?I find it difficult to believe that the
minority party has no role to play in politics. Our system of government, of
checks and balances, has been set up to represent the people and distribute
power so that one group cannot run roughshod over others, including the
minority. It seems that Obama and liberals can cast a vision for what they want
(State of the Union) but when it comes down to actually passing laws they will
have to engage Republicans and work together to compromise and do the peoples
@davidyour right in that the minority party has a role to play the problem
is the opposition party at this point has taken up a position of complete
unwillingness to compromise which is driven by their GOP base.From the article
" a pew poll from last month found that 36 percent of GOP voters would look
favorably on a politician who compromises, compared with 59 percent of Democrats
and 53 percent of independent voters." the facts are the gOp is the minority
party and it is absurd to think that Obama and Democrats should bow to their
Sorry to rain on your parade Tolstoy but in the U.S. House of Representatives
the Republican Party is the majority party. Furthermore, the majority of state
governors and legislatures are controlled by Republicans. The only thing
Republicans don't control is the White House and the U.S. Senate. So
perhaps it is equally absurd that the Republicans should bow to the complete
rigidity of Obama and the democrats.
1conservative says - "The more the nation gets to see Obama's failed
policies and the billions he spends "practicing" with the nations taxes,
the less likely ANY democrats will be elected in the 2014 elections."Congress sets tax rates, not the President. If the President is getting
his way on tax experiments, then Jason Chaffetz is ineffective."Obama has run out of the extra taxes he coaxed from the
"millionaires", now he'll be coming after all the rest of
us."The tax rates that affected millionairs haven't even gone
into effect yet.
A poll (Dec. 2012) by Pew Research Center finds that President Obama and
congressional Democrats lead their Republican counterparts by a wide margin in
job approval ratings, and are seen by a majority of respondents as more willing
to work on a compromise for a budget agreement than GOP leaders. when comparing the two parties on willingness to embrace bipartisanship, 53%
said Democrats were "more willing to work with leaders from the other
party," whereas Republicans got nearly half that number, 27%. Pew compared job ratings between Pres. Obama and House Speaker Boehner.
Whereas the president received favorable marks of 55%, the GOP's chief
negotiator for the budget talks had the approval of 28% of Americans.
Congressional Republican leaders' job performances were reviewed favorable
by a quarter of Americans, while Democratic leaders saw positive ratings of
40%.Jason, you're doing a good job of leading your party down
the drain (unfortunately taking the country with you).
Some of you have very short memories.You scream about spending. And
so do the leaders of the GOP.However, they are hypocrites. Just a few short years ago they voted to enact the largest entitlement
program in 30+ years, Medicare Part D.And it got a yes vote from
Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Canter and even Paul Ryan.The
GOP leaders are anything but fiscal conservatives. (sidenote from my
previous postThanks Star bright. I should have added the Death
Panel claim to my list)
I love Jason Chaffetz! All you naysayers should go and listen to him speak. He
knows his facts and figures. He represents Utah very well an a conservative
voice. I agree with Bryan. Thanks for your comments!Hold the line,
Jason. Keep working hard. You represent us well.
Chaffetz getting his feedback in Heber City?That bastion of intellect,
reason, diversity & acceptance?
Why is it that the media always points out that Conservatives don't want to
compromise when liberals do the same thing? You never hear the media mention the
word extreme when referring to the left, but they always use that term when they
talk about conservatives as if conservatives have only existed since 2009. The
media has become so full of hate. They call conservatives the same thing they
call Al Quaeda, extremists. And lets not forget Moderates are the ones who
elected Obama. He didn't win because there are so many liberals that they
out number the right. The moderates voted for the most liberal President in
history. Maybe the so called moderates aren't really the moderates they
believe themselves to be. No real moderate would ever call one side extreme and
not the other. If you are really seeing the right as extreme and not the left
then you are not a moderate.
Imagine you are on a city council and a newly elected mayor, taking advantage of
his power, succeeds in changing a zoning ordinance in order to put a shopping
mall in a quiet subdivision. When you and other councilmen voice legitimate
concerns, the mayor ignores and belittles you and uses bullying tactics to push
through the zoning change. Construction on the mall starts. Then the mayor says
that there are budget problems some of which are associated with modernizing the
roads near the new mall and he says “We need to all work together now and
cooperate and raise taxes for the good of the city.” From your past
experience with this ruthless and deceptive man, are you going to cooperate with
him?After the way Obama treated the Republicans in shoving through
Obamacare, is there any reason at all that they should cooperate with such a
ruthless and unprincipled man? We all witnessed that fiasco. Obamacare was
passed without one Republican vote. After the way he mistreated the Republicans
in the house and senate, why should they cooperate with him?
What seems to escape Rep Chaffetz and his gang of obstructionist is the GOP lost
the last two Presidential elections. That means the majority of the country is
not buying what they are peddling. Destroying the country to make a point is
Keep up the good work Rep Chaffetz. The Presidents Socialist/Communist policies
need to be stopped. No Compromise. I wish it was Senator Chaffetz but I can
wait another 6 years.
@EliotThe only reason the Republicans control the House of
Representatives is that the wave election of 2010 gave Republicans control in
many of the state legislatures, and they used it to gerrymander the districts so
that they are nearly guaranteed to retain control. In the 2012 election, there
were about 1.4% more votes for Democratic congressmen than Republicans, so one
would expect a nearly equally divided House, but with the Democrats in control.
Because of the gerrymandering, however, the House is controlled by Republicans.
The House of Representatives, as presently constituted, is NOT
representative of the will of the people.
the republicans are the only thing standing between a complete downfall of this
society and obama being installed as dictator. everyone should be grateful and
support or admit your wrong when the dust settles and you are under bondage.
there was no gerrymandering for pete's sake! conspiracy theories abound!
and for those of you who wonder why obama won by 53%, its because 53% of the
people didn't listen to the truth--they only heard pretty words
administered by an empty suit.
@Tolstoy,The party in power is always going to be "more favorable"
to compromise. They will usually get more of what they want because they have
more control. This lame article is written by a liberal hack, from the left wing
AP. I have not seen one area that Dcrats are willing to compromise. Not one!
Government is usually not the solution to our problems. More often than not they
are the cause. Look at the history of the world. Individuals create the
solutions, so I'm happy with gridlock so the amount of damage is limited.
curbee By empty suit are you referring to Clint Eastwood and his bizzare
whatever it was at the RNC. I love it how Republicans love to evoke Reagan, a
President who embraced compromise, granted amnesty, raised taxes, and ran up
budget deficits. The problem the Republicans have is many consider them the
anti-Obama party instead of the party of conservatism. This coming from a life
long Republican who is leaning more and more independent. It is time for
Congressman Chafetz to listen to all of his constituents, not just those on the
Fortunately, unyielding democrats are also doing what voters want, as opposed to
simply being obstinate. They're moving us forward, trying to set us up with
a proper health care system, and not simply falling back on the tired idea that
government is the enemy.
Chemyst, Elections have consequences.Tolstoy, Republicans have
compromised. A bill was passed raising $Hundreds of Billions in new tax revenue
last month.Now where are the spending cuts? Obama wants more tax
increases and the GOP is saying they already gave him that. Obama
will put forward a proposal but it will include more tax increases, only so he
can point his finger and say that Republicans won't compromise. But
that's my point. The GOP already gave him more tax revenue and they are
saying no more, Mr Pres, get serious about cutting government spending.Obama in his State of the Union introduced dozens of new government programs.
Doesn't sound like a man that is serious about reduced government
spending.The president's last two budgets submitted to Congress
has failed to gather a single vote. Not one vote. Does that say anything about
a man that has any degree of knowledge and competence regarding budgets? Does
that represent a man that you can compromise with?
We have a Rep named Chaffetz? I thought he was a Romney campaign manager...?
@curbeeYou are uninformed. In Pennsylvania, which has
18 representatives, 13 are R, 5 are D. However, in that state there were 2.71
million votes for Democratic congressional candidates, 2.64 million for
Republican candidates. How can this happen? Because of GERRYMANDERING. Look
at a map of the Congressional districts in Pennsylvania, and you'll see the
most convoluted congressional districts you can imagine.The same is
true in other states that had Republican legislatures and Governors after the
2010 elections, but which went Democratic, re-electing Barack Obama. In North
Carolina, there were 9 Republicans elected to Congress, 4 Democrats. However,
there were 2.22 million votes for Democrats, 2.14 million for Republicans.
Again, look at a map of the Congressional districts in North Carolina, and
you'll see the weirdest shaped districts - because of gerrymandering.The same is true in Ohio, but I don't have time to look up the
numbers.There is nothing comparable on the Democratic side of the
aisle. Sure, some states are a bit off-balance favoring Democrats, but nothing
like these numbers for Republicans.
Many of the people here speak about Gov't spending? Not sure what the
point is? Utah received $3 billion from the stimulus. Plus $1.5 Billion in
additional tax cuts. I don't remember anyone sending those funds back? I
can't seem to find anyone who refused the tax advantages?We
built schools, improved I-15, built gov't buildings throughout Utah,
including a firestation in Cedar City (if I remember right), etc....I can remember our Legislator's taking credit for these great projects,
despite the fact they voted "NO" on the bill. They sought praise for
the "Great things they help bring to our State". Go figure!Can't have it both ways people!
onceuponatime claims "If you are really seeing the right as extreme and not
the left then you are not a moderate."I highly disagree with
that statement. You are blind to an obvious shift in "the left". Your
position is that "the left" is as it always has been. How do you
explain Ronald Reagan's conservatives finding common ground with Liberals?
The new left doesn't seek common ground in solving the nation's
problems. They hold their ground against solutions, and never bother to offer
their own. For today's radical left (i.e. Jason Chaffetz), pouting like a
small child is the way to get attention. Republicans let these radicals into
the party in a vain hope to win the national elections. They've let the
Fox into the hen house, and it will kill the party.
DavidRL: and yet when we look at recent history Most presidents get elected to
their second term in fact by the end of President Obama's term that will
have been true for 24 years. Now if the GOP losses again in 4 years that is when
your argument will have some validity. David: I love your last
paragraph, couldn't agree more!
odd that Republicans have a very short memory of what the last Republican
administration did, which irked the Democrats totally as much as the Democratic
administration is irking Republicans now.Democrats were at least, if not more,
frustrated with President Bush and his one-sighted view and policies along with
his low-compromise record with Congress, even though those Democrats in Congress
compromised far more with Bush than the present Republicans have done with
Obama. Democrats could only sit and wait for another election - and compromise
enough to keep the country going. Too bad the Republicans in Congress now cannot
have at least that much statesmanship. And the Republicans in the country can
sit and wait for the next election, just as the Democrats were forced to do
during 8 long years of Bush. Why do Republicans whine so much louder when they
don't have the White House than the Democrats when they don't? Answer
I am, unfortunately, one of his constituents and he certainly IS NOT doing what
I want him to do.
Just after the Newtown shooting, Jason Chaffetz' public position was that
gun restrictions are not the answer; more attention must be given to the mental
health of our citizens. At last, common ground! Please, Jason, tell
us how you will work with an age-old liberal cause, to improve mental health
care to those in need? At a time when social programs are most under fire,
please tell us how mental health care will be spared - no! enhanced!..?
in other words, "grandstanding for rednecks".
@The Skeptical ChymistDo the math!It is not because of
gerrymandering. It is mathematically impossible.If the democrats
truly are are the majority, and they are not, independents are the majority,but IF democrats are the majority no matter how you slice the pie, by
the math you must still have majority democrats in a majority of districts.Math is absolute, liberal subjective reasoning is not.The
GOP is doing what the majority of independents and republicans want, and
mathematically they are the majority.The ONLY reason that the GOP
lost the white house and some senate seats, is because of their inability to
rouse their base, and their inability to define themselves as different from
their opponents. They could not communicate conservative principles.It has NOTHING to do with anything else, no matter what extreme left
@the truthYou say "Do the math!", but I'm the one who
provided numbers. You only provided words, words that do nothing to refute my
numbers. Do a little research. Look up the examples I provided. You will find
that my numbers are correct.Do you know what gerrymandering is? It
is setting up congressional districts to pack a few districts with an
overwhelming majority of members of one party in order to make the vast majority
of the districts more competitive (and often to outright favor) the opposite
party. When this is done, the districts often take on very peculiar shapes.
Look at the 17th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, and you'll see
what I mean. Or alternatively, in a state that is less evenly divided (such as
Utah), it is to take a location that is dominated by the minor party and divide
it up in an unnatural way in order to lessen the chances of the minor party
getting any representation.Apparently this is not illegal, but it
should be, as it circumvents the will of the people.
Don't underestimate Jason Chaffetz and his resolve and trust that
Washington despises him for with this attempts to discredit him for his honesty
and true efforts to make a difference to keep our Constitution, rights, and
liberties intact.His actions span more than financing corruption in
Washington and especially in Utah, his actions are not uncompromisable as they
should be. Some things like rights and freedoms can't be compromised and
bought by federal funding (money) or laws promoting civil unrest and
discrimination.The hate for Chaffetz in Washington has crept its way
into the ignorance of low infromation American population of Utah. Those who
hate Chaffetz are illegal aliens, AKA illegal undocumented immigrants, and
public criminals looting the peoples government of its rights and law thru false
claims.Maybe its time to start exposing the democrats who believe in
the same country and same rights and same laws to break this evil presidents
back and demand his resignation and/or impeachment.Jason Chaffetz is
one of the few in Washington who removes himslef from party politics putting
this country and citizens at his disposal to unite and unify this country as one
culture and cause, Americans with prejudice.
The president's definition of compromise is, "Do it my way." After
his first election he told others that we won, get to the back of the bus.
Thanks Jason for standing in the way of Obama's Chinese credit card.
Obama's problem is summed up in Margaret Thacher's classic quite,
"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other
A surge of public opinion swept candidates like Rep. Chaffetz into office. That
surge is waning. I hope the next political wave is based more on respectful
dialogue than the emotional rhetoric of talk radio.I concede that
the positions promoted by right-wing conservatives are partly supported by
facts. It's problematic that they don't afford their ideological
adversaries the same respect.
@The Skeptical ChymistYour math doesn't work because we are a
representative republic and NOT a democracy.So your one single
number does not tell the whole story in our system.And thank
goodness for that.Are you telling us the extreme left is for
majority rule, or as some have called it mob rule? Our founding
fathers certainly did not want that. abhorred it, in fact.Gerrymandering only helps keep a few in power, like Barney Frank, yep the
left, the democrats do it too.But gerrymandering does not work in
the aggregate, and at best can only give you 50-50 odds in districts you do not
control.The math is that simple.Try it with 10 voters, 6
majority, and 4 minority, a simple case. Starting with three districts, you can
control about the same ratio as the voters you have, the more districts you have
the less control you have and the control ratio tends to about the same ratio
as voter alliance. The real ratio though would also have independents making it
@the truthTrue, we are a representative republic, and I, too, am
glad for that. It would be complete chaos if all voters had to vote on every
issue before the country. None of us have the time for that, and we rely on our
representatives to make informed decisions on our behalf.I'm
not telling you anything about the extreme left or what it wants. I'm
simply saying that the system is rigged and our representative republic does not
give all political views equal representation. There is pretty strong evidence
that right now the bias induced by gerrymandering is greater than anytime in the
past several decades, and it is in favor of the Republicans.Your
example did not address the actual numbers, which I looked up. In PA there are
18 congressional districts and there were 2.71M D votes, 2.64M R votes. (Look it
up yourself.) If you assume all districts have 0.297M voters, and pack 5
districts so they are 70%D, 30%R, and assume all remaining districts have the
same R-D percentages, you'll get 5D and 13R congressmen. That's
roughly what happened. Work it out, you'll see how gerrymandering works.
Does it not seem a bit self-aggrandizing to suggest areas who didn't vote
for Pres. Obama and Democrats only did so because of gerrymandering?
Well he sure does not represent me. I am his constituent, I have contacted him
many times on different issues, and his office always kindly reminds me that he
totally opposes my views. And that's that with a guy like him.
@The Skeptical ChymistWhat you claim IS mathematically
impossible.Go ahead and try divide the ratio of 70 to 30 to give
the majority to the 30 in the super majority of districts.What you
claim is just not so.The numbers do not and can not lie.You seem to assume that all registered democrats will only vote for democrats,
which is just not so.People will vote for whom they will. Otherwise
matheson would have and should have lost here.And the majority of
voters do not belong to any party. You seem to ignore that group entirely.I do not believe it is self-aggrandizement, I believe it is believing
what the left tells to think, which is hateful things and lies about the
opposition.Which in this case, in the close and absolute analysis,
is obviously proved to be false mathematically, built on the sands of
The Republican party is languishing. The infighting that is occurring between
the Tea Party members and the other Republicans is only hastening its demise. My
prediction - the next POTUS will be Hillary Clinton thanks to the Tea Party.
Imagine that. An elected official doing what the people who elected him want him
to do. This is a bad thing? Really?
My, my, my listen to you folks here. No compromise. None. No compromise here.
It's my way or the highway. With that attitude Democrats will win national
elections for years to come. Can anyone say Hillary in 2016? And you wonder
why moderates voted overwhelmingly for Obama. Thanks to you guys I am no longer
a Republican but one of those despicable independent voters.Remember
Ronald Reagan and Tip O' Neil? Polar opposites in everything they
believed. But they came together for the GOOD OF THE COUNTRY. Reagan should
have been impeached for working with a Democrat to solve the nations problems.
In today's Republican party Ronald Reagan wouldn't get past the
nomination process. How sad.By the way Mr. Chaffetz not raising the
debt ceiling and defaulting on our debts to other countries as well as ordinary
Americans would indeed have caused a world wide depression.Way to stand up
there. I'll vote against everything even if ordinary Americans are hurt.
But I'll still collect my $175,0000 a year salary and take half the year
off. You are the man.
per curbee 2/15 at 4:43pAnd the another pandering Ivy leaguer
(Mittens) ironically got 47% of the vote.
Some of the constituents in Heber City asked why Obama hasn't been
impeached? Really? Maybe those constituents could explain the high crimes and
misdemeanors being committed by Obama. If our country is going to degenerate to
a point where we simply impeach a president because of his politics, then we
really are doomed. Those constituents need to take a long hard look at what
they are promoting, because they are promoting an end to our Republic and the
transition to something terrible. Shame on them. I'm not a fan of Obama,
but I also believe in our political system--no matter how broken at times, and
impeaching a president just because you don't like the opposing party is a
dangerous road to travel.
Chaffetz sure does not represent me with his unyielding policies. He is what is
wrong with Congress. I can't believe the Enlightened Legislature
Gerrymandered him into my area to get rid of Matheson. Shame on Chaffetz and
shame on the State Legislature for making him my Congressman!!
Chaffetz does not represent me. The State Legislature made him a congressman.
My vote didn't count. One person = One vote is not true in Utah. It's
not democracy. It's corruption (Gerrymandering). The extreme right has the
power in Utah.
Mr. Chaffetz needs to see the movie Lincoln and pay special attention to Tommy
Lee Jones' character. It went against every fiber of his body to
compromise with Lincoln and support the amendment as it pertained to equality in
the eyes of the law. But he had to do it to get something as opposed to
nothing. Chaffetz is exactly the perfect example of what is wrong with America
You are doing an outstanding job Jason, I have several family members in your
district and they are all MAJOR supporters. Keep fighting the good
Right on Jason!! We desperately need your help in preventing the continuing
total intrusion into our lives by a bulging, uncaring and bent on causing
economic crisis Obama administration. Obama continues in his march as explained
by his College roommate to bring this country to its' knees allowing
himself and his cronies to control our lives through government domination. We
desperately need Jason and his fellow Republicans in congress to protect us
against this onslaught.
"A Pew poll last month found that 36 percent of GOP voters would look
favorably on a politician who compromises, compared with 59 percent of Democrats
and 53 percent of independent voters."Of COURSE Democrats would
look favorably on compromise... the party in power always wants
"compromise" and "cooperation" -- until they are no longer the
party in power. "Compromise" to the party in power means acquiescence
by the opposition.As to Obama's "handy" victory: Obama
got 51% of the votes. Hardly a landslide. Republicans retaining their seats
isn't explained by "gerrymandering." It is explained by large
democratic majorities in places like California, which may or may not slide into
the ocean due to an earthquake, but is rapidly being led to fiscal destruction
by its Democratic majority.
Impartial7- you and 9 people who "liked" your comment are a little out
of touch. When was the last time you were in Heber City? I didn't know that
Draper was the new place of reason, diversity, intellect and acceptance. I
actually visit Draper often. I like the place, if a politician whom I
didn't agree with, showed up in Draper and talked to locals, I would maybe
say something about the politician, not the good people of Draper. Chaffetz was
doing what he should be. Listening to his constituents. Agree with him or not,
that is what an elected official should do. Why mock people you don't know,
just to get a "like". Did you kick puppies when you were little or
something?EDM from "castle valley Utah" Rednecks? wait,
where are YOU from again? So, from now on, when any politician talks
to constituents in any town, it's fair game to name call that town's
people because we do/don't agree with them? Pathetic
When Jason voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2011, we learned all me
need to know about this man. He knew that not raising the ceiling would damage
our country, our economy, and our standing in the world. He also knew that it
wasn't a vote to spend any additional money, only to make good on our
current obligations. Many of which he voted to enact.So, why did he vote
against raising the ceiling? Because he is a sleazy, grandstanding politician
trying to appear conservative. It was shameless and cowardly and he did it
anyway.Of course, the other explanation for that "no" vote is that
he wasn't smart enough to understand the ramifications of the US not paying
its debts. If that was the reason, then we have a bigger problem than I
Look at the photo accompanying this article, Chaffetz seems to be listening to
his constituents here in Utah.Congressmen are pummeled from all
sides by seemingly different and varied lobbyists in Washington to get their
vote. The Institute for Policy Studies uses these lobbyists to push for
expensive regulations and big government leftist(socialist) programs and foreign
wars.Grants for the IPS come from the Samuel Rubin Foundation and
the Stern Family Fund. IPS was founded by James Paul Warburg, Remember the
Warburg bankers in Germany, Max Warburg funding the Kaiser during WW1 while his
brother Paul Warburg immigrates to the US and helps establish the Federal
Reserve and makes bank on the national debt created when Wilson brought the US
into the War.Let's hope Chaffetz representing the people in his
district and keeping our country out of the collectivist schemes of the
prestigious IPS "think tank".
Utah's entire congressional delegation is a joke and Chaffetz is the second
worst only because we have Orrin Hatch.
You have to pass it before you will know what is in it. What does Dr. Ben
Carson think of the "affordable" care act? And, thousands of other
doctors? Well, we are finding "what's in it", and it's not
pretty! Like it or not, Jason Chaffetz's voice is one of the few sensible
ones out there.Apparently, the implication in the first few
sentences of this article is that the President IS willing to compromise but the
Republicans are not. Oh my! It's getting difficult to breathe in here.
