Ben McAdams will be another Democrat stumbling block in the way of progress
towards important immigration policies to protect the economy of our country.
His negative ads carried on even after he knew they were untrue accusations, a
typical liberal strategy.
The fact that a liberal came here to gleefully express her joy that McAdams
would be serving a term of six years in the House of Representatives should tell
you plenty about how informed these type of voters can be. Oy vay.
@ShamrockThe Tax Bill has done a whole lot more for my family and
for myself and those I know than the ACA has ever done or ever will do. So I am
quite glad that they passed the tax bill and yes I am a Millennial.
@ConservativeUtahisBest said: "When they voted for the ACA they didn't
even know what was in it. They had to vote on it before they could get a chance
to read what it was about. "I don't know why people still
believe this falsehood. The basic principles of the Affordable Care Act were
debated at length, and the text of the ACA was released before the vote. Plenty
of regular old people read it and debated it. If Republicans in Congress
didn't read it--or more realistically have their staff members read and
analyze it--that's on them, not the Democrats.Also, do you
think those same Republicans read every word of the 600-page tax bill they so
gleefully passed last year?

"It's not over until Friday's results are in. UT CO rules for Mia
Love, so hold your horses!" -cougs108Honestly, it's not
over until Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox' office canvasses the election and
certifies the official results about two and a half weeks from now, on November
26th.In the meantime, while Utah County still has some votes to be
counted, so does Salt Lake County (absentee ballots, provisional ballots, and
some mail-in ballots that were postmarked on the 5th but not received in the
SLCo Clerk's Office until today), so Mia supporters should probably hold
their horses, as well.
@The Great HelmsmanWhen they voted for the ACA they didn't even
know what was in it. They had to vote on it before they could get a chance to
read what it was about. If I had to vote on something that I had never
read I would probably vote "no" as well. It was Pelosi that said they
had to pass it in order to find out what was in it.
@ CG - Provo, UT"Conservatives don't have any intention of
doing away with coverage for pre-existing conditions."Excuse me?
Conservatives never voted for coverage for pre-existing conditions in the first
place. All 178 Republicans voted against the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on
March 21, 2010. Every single one. It was the ACA that mandated coverage for
pre-existing conditions in the first place. Now you think conservatives are
going to leave that in place when they've repeatedly tried to repeal the
The first campaign promise that McAdams will break will be his vote for Nancy
Pelosi... he knows that if you want to get any committee assignment, help with
bill passage or anything, you need the Speakers support. Nancy has proven to be
tough and see would render McAdams ineffective if he doesn’t support her
just like she did Jim Mattheson.
Mia Love gave no love to President Trump.
Love this and hope it works out for Ben. Mia accomplished next to nothing in
Washington, wouldn't meet with her constituents, and supported the vast
majority of the Trump agenda.CG it is not a lie to state that
conservatives don't support pre-existing conditions. Their plan calls for
the ability to charge 5x in premiums to those who do. That isn't
protecting pre-existing conditions. It's a free market approach and you
know as well as I that many who can't afford it will forego insurance on
account of that change.
It's not over until Friday's results are in. UT CO rules for Mia Love,
so hold your horses!
The hard core who claim that Mia Love is not a real conservative sincerely scare
me. What exactly do you people want from your legislators, and do you think a
lot of Utahns really share your extreme views?
"Trump has loomed large in the race, because despite the state's
reputation as one of the most Republican in the nation, the president's
popularity lags in Utah..."It doesn't matter if you're
Republican from Utah or from the New York suburbs... particularly if you're
a person of strong faith, any faith: his personal behavior throughout his entire
life makes it very difficult to like or respect Donald Trump, even if your
retirement accounts have done very nicely over the last two years. Say
this for Mitt Romney and Barack Obama: you might have quarreled with their
policies, but you never questioned their character.
rickski13"When I voted from Ben I got someone who would vote to
protect people with pre-existing conditions like my wife and I"Then you were sucked in by a lie.Conservatives don't have any
intention of doing away with coverage for pre-existing conditions.

pre-existing conditions like my wife and I
Ben will likely win. Upon arriving in Washington DC, he will be required to
toe the line and support the Pelosi agenda. If he doesn't, he won't
make it past the next primary in 18 months. If he does, he won't make it
past the next general election in two years.Ben is a one-an-done
politician. There's no room for blue dog dems in his party anymore.
BanliberalsGood thinking. Helping pelosi and dems get house is really
showing Republicans who boss.....
By the feel of things it looks like Love has this one. With probably over
20,000 votes still to be counted from Utah County, I would be willing to be she
wins this one.
Mia Love really never has been an actual conservative so her (assumed)loss
won't be much of a big deal..Republicans in Utah will very
easily find a Congressional (conservative)candidate to replace her in 2 yrs.Meanwhile we (may) have good ol' Ben, who will be exactly number
435 in terms of importance in the House of Representatives. House dem leaders
probably won't even get around to assigning him an office til 2 wks before
he leaves in 2 yrs!
I am delighted.
@patriot right on message with setting up the narrative early for
democrats to take the fall for all of Trumps in conceived executive orders and
policy changes that are sure to eventually sink our strong economy. (An economy
that had been growing long before he got in office.)

that a violation of D-News rules, but you're wrong. If it weren't for

Love lost, get over it. Utah Girl Chronicles - Eagle Mountain, UT@ banliberals"She is why I didn't just click the

McAdams will make you deliriously happy for the next six years."That is for 2 years as a State Rep. State Senators are for 6 years. Glad you
voted for McAdams though!
Mia's problem was that she alienated both sides: Democrats dislike her
simply for being Republican, and Republicans has little enthusiasm for her
because she was often critical of and at odds with Trump (especially on
immigration). In the end, some voted for her just to oppose the possibility of
Democrat control, and many Repubs and independents voted for McAdams because he
portrayed himself as an anti-Pelousi moderate. Now we will see if he really is
moderate or just another minion of the Democrats' slide into socialism.
Utah Girl,McAdams ran for The House of Representatives. It's only a
2 year term not 6.
so one of two things is going on here, either you are being dishonest about
where you live or you are being dishonest about your vote since Bountiful is not
in the 4th district.
@Utah Girl“Ben McAdams will make you deliriously happy for the
next six years.”Uh . . . . how long do you think the terms of
House members are?
If she loses BanLiberals, it's absolute purists like you who handed the
office to McAdams. Who despite his advertisements will vote for Pelosi and
follow her lead just like every other democrat in Congress.Love may
be a bit moderate on a couple topics but she is a good Conservative on most
issues. And it's looking like the absolute purists like Banliberals have
handed the win to the Liberal they claim to most hate. In a close
race you have to support the nominee of your party unless you actually want to
hand the election to the opposing party. This is why so many of us held our
noses and voted for Trump once he won the Nomination. Turns our we made a good
choice there, but the important thing is that we didn't hand our vote to
the opposition by not casting it, or by wasting it on a third party with zero
chance.Fingers are crossed that the late voters at the polling
locations and the last of the mail ballots can swing it for her. They are
currently reporting only 14,000 votes tabulated for Utah County, considering she
carried a margin of 20k votes in the county last time that number should be
In another gerrymandered Utah district, something must really be wrong with Mia
Love if McAdams hasn't already conceded under a landslide.
6 percent is right? Incumbent Mia Love is losing by 6 points. That’s not a
tight race. What has she done in 4 years? Can anyone tell me of any legislation
she has sponsored that has helped the majority of citizens in our state?
Go McAdams. We know you will work with Mitt in the best interest of our country.
We know you both will reach across the aisle and work together in the best
interest of our state as well.
