Congressman Jim Matheson, top center, gets his ballot to cast his votes at the Utah State Democratic Convention held at the Salt Palace. Saturday, April 21, 2012

Rep. Jim Matheson keeps crowing about Utah values, but when the House meets to organize at the start of every Congress, he votes to caucus with the Democrats. By this vote, he proves that his real desire is for Nancy Pelosi to control the House chairmanships and its legislative agenda.

This action speaks louder than all his words and proves that he supports the Obama-Reid-Pelosi plan for bigger, more intrusive, more expensive government.
