Reaction to Matheson Vote on ACA, Huntsman Skips GOP Convention

Salt Lake Tribune Washington Correspondent Thomas Burr

(KCPW News) This week, for the 30th-plus time, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature health care reform law of 2010. And while no one was surprised to see Utah’s Congressional Republicans support that repeal, the fact that they were joined by Blue Dog Democrat Jim Matheson is a different story. Every Friday, we talk with Thomas Burr, Washington Correspondent for the Salt Lake Tribune and author of Political Cornflakes, a daily, online round-up of Utah politics. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson spoke with him about the reaction Matheson is getting to his vote.
