    Here is the truth about about Matheson's vote on Obamacare...

    Read carefully...

    Jim was released by Nancy Pelosi to vote against Obamacare when it was clear that his vote was not needed to pass the bill.

    If Nancy had needed his vote to pass the bill, she would have had it.

    If the truth is so important to Jim, perhaps he should tell that story.

    Why is it that Jim never spoke out against Obamacare before the vote? Because he knew he might have to vote for it if his vote had been needed.

    If you are like me and are tired of the competing claims about Rep. Jim Matheson's voting record re: ObamaCare, consider the following:

    For those that think Rep. Matheson helped fight "ObamaCare" when it passed, think again.

    Look at what votes he made the last week prior that helped set up what happened Sunday March 21, 2010.

    For those that wanted the bill to pass, he voted against it, for those that wanted it to fail, he voted to suspend the rules so it could pass.

    Look at votes 129, 130, as well as votes 159, 160, 162 and 163

    He did the same thing months before. Look at votes 881, 882, 884, 885, 886, 887

    The legislature didn't redistrict Rep. Matheson out of the 2nd district. He lives in the current 2nd and new 2nd district. The new 2nd district and 4th district are reportedly both as republican as his current district. He chose to run in the 4th district because he resides in Utah and the US constitution doesn't say he has to run in his own district. Unless he moves, he won't be able to vote for himself this fall.

    What is not reported in the article is that the NRCC ads against Matheson show their expertise in Photoshop by taking a head shot of Matheson and putting it on another body. Not sure why they would do that because there are plenty of actual full-length photos that they could use. But it's a deception to distort which goes along with Matheson's complaint about the ads themselves.

    While he's at it, why doesn't matheson call for TV stations to pull the BO-approved ads (not the superpac, but official BO campaign ads) that lie about Romney? Wait, then he'd have to tell joe biden to recant 90% of what he said last night.
