Letter: Tipton is not representing

Posted: Friday, Oct 18th, 2013

Rep. Scott Tipton sent out and email yesterday describing what he and other House members did during the government shutdown. It is obvious that Rep. Tipton is simply kow-towig to the demands of the tea party caucus and is not representing his district’s constituents. He and his colleagues in the House held the country hostage for two weeks, cost the nation many billions of dollars in lost revenue and wages and played a game of chicken with the full faith and credit of the dollar. After writing a lot of conservative nonsense about the Affordable Care Act he now says: “This is not the end of the fight, it is the beginning.” We can expect Rep. Tipton to continue misrepresenting the constituents of this district.
