Chaffetz and Mix it Up on MTP (Video)

So this actually happened. Rep. Jason Chaffetz debated musician on Meet the Press.

For some reason, the Sunday show’s roundtable included and Chaffetz. The two faced off over how to reach young voters.

From Mediaite:

“‘Yes, we can’ means what are you going to do as well as — when you support Obama, are you going to dedicate yourself to finding solutions?” said. “So I went out there and created this program in the ghetto that I came from, that I come from. I can change that, right? I go off and raise money. I use my own money.”

“And I love that he’s doing that,” Chaffetz said. “It’s the private sector that grows the economy, that makes a difference in people’s lives. It’s not big federal government. And the disconnect, the reason that this apathy happens, is because government’s not going to come in and solve all their problems. Health care is a major issue now—”

“But why is it — why, when you politicians say what the private sector should do, the only thing you can use is health care as the thing that fails?” countered. “What about making the consumer electronic products? Why is it that, if I want to Singapore and created jobs, I would get a grant, and it’s hard for a person, an entrepreneur, to come out with a product in America. Where do you go?”

“Regulation,” Chaffetz listed, “the EPA, the over-burdensome federal government that makes it so difficult at every step. One thing that I do think is an opportunity for Republicans…is on privacy and safety and security.”
