Please stop wasting my money. I am retired living on a fixed income and without all of the deductions, child tax credits and earned income tax credits, I pay the most taxes along with others in my tax situation.

We want the Medicaid expansion because our federal taxes have already paid for it. Gov. Gary Herbert also wasted $13 million of taxpayers money on a pay-off on a road project and now is wasting $2 million more on same-sex marriage (marriage is everyone's right and nobody's business other than the bride and bride or groom and groom).

Taxpayers should not have to pay for the governor's bad decisions and mistakes.
