What will it take for the citizens of Utah to remove their blinders and see our Republican representatives for what they really are?

All of the spin and distorted half truths of the hate-filled right wing talk shows cannot change the fact that the government shutdown is the result of Republicans wanting to dismantle the Affordable Health Care Act. Nothing more.

Now these Republican representatives are willing to let individuals and our state economy continue to suffer because they did not get their way. We all make mistakes in life. The key for Utah voters is to learn from our mistakes and not repeat them.
