@lostI disagree. Trumpcare is not any better in its current form and
that is why people are upset. Republicans could solve it but they are beholden
to special interest just like democrats.Trump just wants the
healthcare win and then he will pass the blame on to congress when people
realize it is a bad policy as well.
"Rather than discusss Russian collusion, he avoided it. Which, btw, most
Americans know that trump colluded with Russia as polls show."Oh, they know? When are they going to present this evidence to the FBI? The
FBI will surely need it, because they're not finding any at the moment!
Imperial7Just because YOU do not agree with them does not make them
cowardly. Speaking out for what’s correct against the PC crowd actually
requires a lot of courage.ShaunI remember the townhalls of
which you speak, people were expressing extreme displeasure because of a very
bad bill those holding the townhalls had passed, Obamacare. The current batch of
disrupters, whose behavior has been worse than those of earlier meetings, are
doing so not because of any legislation, but because the election did not go
their way. It’s quite a difference.Educator“some
of you need to stop posting fake news” only some? I suppose that means
liberal are still OK to post fake news.Most Americans know that
trump colluded with Russia. Really? How do they KNOW that? Perhaps a majority
THINK that, but as the dems have yet to come up with proof, it’s still
speculation.Most Americans know, yeah, right
some of you need
to stop posting fake news and overcome your addictions to far left wing news and
violence apologistsGet educated.
Some of you need to stop posting fake news. Those who complained to Chaffetz at
his town hall meeting in salt lake weren't paid protestors nor were they
acting out instead of discussing issues. They wanted to discuss issues. Serious
issues, like health care and collusion between Donald and Russia. Jason however,
antagonized the crowd and refused to give them microphones, forcing them to yell
to be heard. Rather than discusss Russian collusion, he avoided it.
Which, btw, most Americans know that trump colluded with Russia as polls show.
And it shows also in Donald's strong 60 percent disapproval rate. Perhaps
jason should've placed country in front of very unpopular person?No matter, if any of those 11 hope to represent those in salt lake, they need
to appear before salt lake constitutents and discuss these issues. You cannot
hide in Utah county and expect to represent salt lake. Sorry, that's not
how it works. Public servants need to serve all, not just those addicted to far
right wing news and Donald apologists. Get Educated
Attended and found it useful. Well run. Candidates had plenty of chances to talk
with all of the delegates face to face. I heard many candidates fielding tough
questions and doing a decent, though a bit hackneyed job, at answering
questions. And to one person's letter here, YES, organizers,
put everyone on stage on decent chairs, NEVER stools. The three women handled
it with grace and decorum.After several face to face interviews,
listening to the candidates debate, hearing the pithy mini-speeches, reading
their literature and having phone calls with most, my assessment matrix allows
me to winnow the field down to the top 3 for me. I'm reporting
objectively what everyone said last night to everyone in my precinct and telling
them why I've selected the three I have. They will let me know what they
think. Then Saturday I'll cast my representative ballot for one.Great representative democracy microcosm in action. Thanks the candidates and
teams, diligent delegates and sponsors of the meetings that have been held so we
could better assess the candidates. 3rd District has at least 5 excellent people
who will represent it well in DC.
I remember the Obamacare townhalls were not cordial by republicans. So
republicans can not claim that democrats are the only ones who are rude at
@impartial,No, they are in Lehi so they can talk about the real
issues with their real constituents. They aren't avoiding issues; they are
avoiding detractors who have nothing productive to contribute to the
conversation and just want to disrupt, yell, scream, etc. like liberals have
done since Nov. 9th. Is having a productive discussion bad?
@Impartial7 " Are they afraid of dealing with real issues?"I'm sure they don't want an earful about healthcare. They need to
hear the people.
Could somebody please show some respect to female candidates and not place
everyone on a high stool? It must be pretty awkward sitting in a dress on one of
those for over an hour.Just sayin'.
@incomplete7No they are afraid of dealing with the screamers and the
shouters who never learned common courteosy at their mothers knee.
Impartial7 - No. They wish to avoid the rude, crude behavior of those who sole
purpose will be to hijack and then disrupt the meeting.
More of the same cowardly "leadership". Lehi? How about meeting in the
gerrymandered areas of Salt Lake County? Are they afraid of dealing with real
