    The Hill is reporting on-line that Rep. Matheson (D-Utah) is only one of four out of the 19 original Democrats who rejected a Democratic Bill last year that would have kept the President Bush tax cut on the middle class households while allowing the tax cut for those making over $250,000 to expire and who now has not endorsed a discharge petition by the U.S. House Democrats to allow this bill to reach the House floor for an up or down vote. This procedural vote blocking the public from having its Representatives commit themselves on where they now stand is an affront to our Democratic system of representative government to allow the public to know where their Representative stands on important public issues. Utah would be better served by a Congressman who will allow the Democratic bill to reach the House floor (now that the Presidential election is over) and then vote on the Bill up or down out in the open of the American public.
