Utah voters bear blame for D.C. dysfunction

An AP-GfK poll shows the public approval rating of Congress at 5 percent. Yet just 11 months ago Utah re-elected 100 percent of our congressional reps and sent them back to D.C. They've offered no real effort at brokering solutions. We're not blameless. We sent them to Washington.

Sen. Mike Lee is the poster boy for gridlock and obstruction, and I think it's time we write him and ask him to resign. Lee has left the reservation and is making us all look like fools.

Please take a moment, contact the senator and ask him to step down so we can get someone in the Senate who will serve with honor. We deserve a functioning government, and I'm sorry to say the folks we sent to D.C. are agents of dysfunction.
