Chaffetz to appear on Colbert

Rep-elect Jason Chaffetz will be appearing on an episode of “The Colbert Report” set to air after the new year.  Chaffetz talked about his experience to the Salt Lake City Tribune:

Chaffetz spent three hours Tuesday in New York taping a segment for television satirist Stephen Colbert that will air sometime after the new year. Colbert’s folks denied a reporter’s request to view the taping, but Chaffetz said it was fun and that Colbert, a faux conservative pundit, is an “exceptionally nice guy.”

“He’s so fun,” Chaffetz said en route back to Washington, noting that he thought his appearance went well. But, “Who knows what they’re going to slice and dice that to look like.”

Even though he’s a liberal, I do like Stephen Colbert.  I’ve heard from a few people that he’s a very nice guy in person and he made me laugh pretty consistantly in “Strangers with Candy.”  I can’t wait to see this episode. 

Rep-elect Chaffetz isn’t giving anything away, except for one word: legwrestling.

Who knows how to promote small business?

According to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, it’s Jason Chaffetz:

“Jason Chaffetz is the proven pro-small business candidate in this race,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s vice president, political. “A small business owner himself, Chaffetz is well-versed on the issues facing our members. In addition, his policy positions have indicated his support of many of NFIB’s priority issues including healthcare and tax reform, as well as opposing labor initiatives such as card check that would hamper an entrepreneur’s ability to run a business without union interference.”

If Sen. Obama is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that taxing most small business in a time of economic downturn is a horrible idea.

If Sen. McCain is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that burdensome regulations against “greed” go against the free market principles that made this country great.

Another reason to be glad Jason Chaffetz won the GOP primary

Voters in Utah’s 3rd congressional district finally get to see what Rep. Chris Cannon’s beliefs really are.  He was the only member of Utah’s congressional delegation to vote for the Wall Street bailout twice.

If you help Jason Chaffetz by donating to or volunteering for his campaign, you can ensure that Utah’s 3rd district gets a Congressman who stands up for fiscal responsibility.
