Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz was interviewed today by Soledad O'Brien of CNN.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) criticizes the handling of Libyan consulate security despite voting to cut embassy funding.
Later in the interview, CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien asks, “Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?”
Chaffetz answers, “Absolutely. Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country...."
Chaffetz says you have to have "priorities" on the budget. Chaffetz and the Republicans have priorities--- give tax cuts to the rich, tax cuts for oil companies, end corporate taxes, etc., but apparently they don't want to spend money to protect Americans in foreign countries serving in embassies.
Soledad O'Brien has become the toughest interviewer in journalism. Some people should watch her and learn!
