It is my feeling that Mike Lee should spend a little more time representing
people here in Utah rather than "struting around on the national
stage"Perhaps some of the readers could refresh me on what
legislation Mike Lee has introduced and passed to benefit the people of Utah or
the United States.I do not seem to remember any of his legislation
passed. Am I wrong?My personal feeling is that he perhaps should
practice what he preaches about fiscal responsibility in his own personal
life.It is called "Walking the Walk" instead of "Talking
Mike Lee is the antithesis to the far left demagoguery. He is like holy water
for democrat vampires. Mike Lee is the salt for left wing snails. He must be
good or the Left would not be so afraid of him.
George of the jungle: inflation is running at about 2% annually. At that rate it
is going to take about 40 years for your money to be worth half of what it is

UTAll I see is inflation of the cost of living. At the current rate it is

could get richer.Social Mod Fiscal ConWest Jordan, UTSo

@Anti GovernmentAlpine, UTNearly every poll says somewhere
between 52% and as high as 59% of Americans still DISapprove of obamacare. Yet
day after day we see politicians who attempt to stop/change it getting blasted
in the press.People should spend some time evaluating that
disconnect.Bad is bad and it is corrupt politicians that allow it to
continue while in the backroom they are busy exempting themselves from being
subject to the terms of it.Wake up people. You are being used.12:17 p.m. Nov. 10, 2013============ I agree - sort of
- So now, let me explain your 'disconnect".If you
asked me if I disapprove of Obamacare, I would say YES.Because I (like
many MANY others) want a single-payer system, with the public option
[i.e., NO Insurance Companies making a profit using healthcare.] Corrupt politicians let the Insurance companies come in and write the
legislation, taking control of Affordable Healthcare.BTW - It
was the REPUBLICANS that did that when they proposed it in the first place.
Mike Lee is the perfect example of the Party of No.I just checked Mike
Lee's actual voting record thus far in the Senate....56 - Yea
votes, 144 - Nay votes.And he has not voted Yea once FOR a
single judicial nominee.100% Nay votes.He is the poster child
epitome of NO.Just like being Mr. "fiscally responsibility"
on his Alpine mansion, His actions speak louder than his words.

Constitution, then I hope to believe that there are more than just a handful.

It would be nice if Mike would practice what he is now preaching. I see no sign
that he will actually do so.
"It takes real guts to stand up for right and say 'this is wrong',
even when it is incredibly unpopular," writes Social Mod Fiscal Con.I agree, and I commend the Utah Democrats for doing just that.
If by Tea Party, you mean fiscally responsible and concerned about the future
strength of the US Constitution, then I hope to believe that there are more than
just a handful. BTW, it is possible to fulfill the social contract,
without putting the country into so much debt that we have no hope of ever
climbing out of the hole. It is also possible to fulfill the social
contract without reducing the Constitution to a cute little platitude we once
believed in, and nod at a couple times a year as Congress passes any law they
think will get them re-elected. It takes real guts to stand up for
right and say "this is wrong", even when it is incredibly unpopular.
It looks like the handful of Mike Lee Tea Partiers in the state of Utah are also
Deseret News readers... whose comments illustrate exactly why Lee needs to leave
politics for good!
So long as No is the only way to stop the spread of socialism and the moral
decay of our country, then No is what needs to be said. It needs to be said
loudly, it needs to be said consistently, it needs to be said with conviction.
Nearly every poll says somewhere between 52% and as high as 59% of Americans
still DISapprove of obamacare. Yet day after day we see politicians who attempt

some time evaluating that disconnect.People need to realize that it
is the politicians that are attempting to represent the actual will of the
people are the ones being vilified and run out of town. Why? So the corrupt
group of long standing politicians can hold onto their power, kickbacks, and
position and just keep "going along to get along" all literally at our
expense. I don't care what party people affiliate with but you
need to stop accepting excuses that bad legislation is ok. Obamacare is bad on
so man levels. Democrats know it. What legislation has been proposed to fix
those problems? Nothing. Why? Why? Why?Bad is bad and it is
corrupt politicians that allow it to continue while in the backroom they are
busy exempting themselves from being subject to the terms of it.Wake
up people. You are being used.
It's a good thing there is a party of no. President Credibility and the
Dems agenda is so packed with lies. If you like your lies you can keep your
lies.Thats what those who pack his water are saying.
While Lee said he continues to stand behind his effort to stop Obamacare, now
it’s important for him to “help guide the political debate and
discussion” to determine “how best the Republican Party can position
itself for victories in 2014 and 2016 and beyond."Why not just
think about what is best for all Americans? Focusing on getting a win for your
Party is the cause of class warfare and is what bitterly divides us. All need
access to health care. There is no moral imperative to protect the health
People don't think anymore, they just react. No is all they've got
“Frustration is not a platform. Anger is not an agenda. And outrage, as a
habit, is not even conservative.”"Conservatism is
“about inclusion. Successful political movements are about identifying
converts, not heretics.” Amen.
Come back, Bob Bennett. Let's have you challenge Mike Lee in the next
Sarah Palin was criticized for predicting death panels in Obamacare. Looks like
she was right, but will get no credit for it. The Democratic party is killing
the goose(the economy) that lays the golden egg by hamstringing it with rules
and regulations and high taxes. The Democrats have a lot of new taxes coming up
for vote. An unimaginable number of people are on food stamps, welfare, and
other programs, well over 100 bureaucracies administer it. That sounds
efficient. I guess these days a desire to be fiscally responsible in the face
of $100 trillion or more unfunded liabilities is demagoguery.
Barack Hussein Obama is the one who is causing Americans to suffer by damaging
the economy with his failed policies. Senator Lee was right on in trying to stop
Obama and his failed policies. Opposition to policies which are and will destroy
this country and the economy is good policy. Some Americans did suffer during
the shutdown but Obama and Reid were at fault for failing to negotiate. Millions
of Americans have lost their insurance due to failed Democrat policies and Obama
flat out lied about it. I had wonderful family health insurance and now I am
paying twice the amount for a lesser policy with a higher deductible. The
Democrat party is destroying this country with liberal Republicans as their
accomplishes. Senator Lee has my full support and his efforts to stop Obamacare
Its humorous to me that Mike Lee says the GOP needs to say what it is for, and
then says they are for being against big government.
Let's run with saying "no" and never progressing until we get
caught too many times.Let's work on ridiculous legislation,
meant only to make us look good to our contributors, and blame the other side
for not passing it.Let's refuse to participate in writing a
Health Care law and spend 4 years pretending it did not pass, rather than
helping to make it betterLet's forget that all Americans need
our Government to move forward and do its job.Let's put
applause by people we have fooled above God.____That is Lee, Cruz,
and way too many others.
Mike Lee, the Jefferson smith of our day. the best Senator this state, and
perhaps this country, has ever had! I have never been willing to go to work to
re-elect anyone, but Mike Lee, as long as he doesn't join the long list of
kingmen that are his contemporaries, will see me work day and night to do so!
Opposition to all things Obama is the only thing holding the GOP together. The
surest way to accelerate their well-deserved exile into to the political
wilderness is to have them start arguing specifics among themselves about what
It all sounds nice, but I don't see how you reconcile his words with his
recent actions. Mike Lee is a consummate politician but a lousy leader.
Mike Lee is second only to Ted Cruz in far Right demagoguery. He caused
Americans to suffer and our economy to be harmed by urging default on the
nation's debt ceiling. Shame on him.
