Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) – ‘GOP Moron x pi’ of the Day

Via: Wonkette

Representative Jason Chaffetz, a Republican (duh) from Utah, has a lot in common with his fellow Republicans, given that he thinks that fixing the deficit is a very, very important issue, but! not so important that we should be willing to cut defense spending or let the Bush tax cuts expire to get the job done.

See, to Representative Jason Chaffetz, the deficit is a very specific level of important that necessitates raising the retirement age to 72, but does NOT require the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.

In an op-ed over at The Hill called “Washington Has a Spending Problem, Not a Revenue Problem,” Chaffetz patiently explains that if we’d all just be willing to pitch in and sacrifice a little — you know:

– retire at 72

– privatize Medicare

– limit government assistance to Poors, that sort of thing

bottom-line: We can protect the interests of oil companies and rich people AND fix the deficit!
