Today, Politico posted that Chaffetz is expected to announce that he will be resigning from Congress on June 30. This cannot come soon enough. Chaffetz is one of the worst politicians out there aside from Donald Trump.
In the past, Chaffetz has said that people who need health insurance shouldn’t be buying iPhones, despite the fact that the cost of an iPhone is roughly 1/10 the cost of getting a shot at the doctor’s, roughly 1% the cost of an emergency room visit. Chaffetz has clearly shown that he is completely out of touch with the American people.
The unfortunate part of his departure is that he is going to be employed by Fox News, so he will still be in the public eye. Personally, I would rather Chaffetz be gone for good. Personally, I hope he struggles to find health insurance, but, unfortunately, ignorance is not considered a pre-existing condition.
