Rep. Chaffetz: Valerie Jarrett "seems to have her tentacles" in every Obama administration scandal
Posted by Staff

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) explained how his extreme distrust of the Obama Administration has shaped his stance on both ObamaCare and immigration reform.

When asked about his threat to subpoena ObamaCare documents regarding the failed rollout of the exchanges, Chaffetz argued that failure has been a pattern for the Obama Administration with all roads leading to Valerie Jarrett: “She seems to have her tentacles into every issue and every topic… her name ultimately always comes up,” he said.

When Laura questioned Chaffetz about his stance on immigration reform and whether he supports going to conference with the Senate, Chaffetz explained that his position was similarly colored by his distrust of the Obama Administration: “I have no trust in the Senate. I do not believe we should go to conference until we can have a clear understanding and direction from the Speaker.” Ultimately, however, Chaffetz made it clear that he would still consider going to conference: “we have passed out of committee five bills that I really like, that I think are very good and I think if we went through them line by line...you would like them [as well].” Laura, however, remained highly skeptical, “not with this conference, I wouldn’t,” she quipped.
