Rep. Jason Chaffetz: Chairman Of Glenn Beck's Oversight Committee

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a prominent "rising star" in the House GOP caucus, has often used his position on the House Oversight Committee to serve as Glenn Beck's man in Congress. Chaffetz has repeatedly responded to Beck's conspiracy theories by demanding documents from the parties involved or even introducing legislation. Beck has noticed Chaffetz's efforts, repeatedly applauding him as one of the "good Republicans" his audience can "trust." Chaffetz, a frequent Beck guest, has likewise declared the Fox host a "great educator" and participated in his events, even scheduling a retreat for his staff so that they could attend Beck's Restoring Honor rally.

GOP Can't Pick A Number On Cap-And-Trade

In a blog post on May 18, 2009, Rep. Jason Chaffetz said: "The Left obviously does not want taxpayers to know the real cost of the tax-and-trade scheme." However, Republicans have claimed, over the course of five days, that cap-and-trade could cost $1,500, $2,200, $3,000, and $3,100, as opposed to the $150 estimate released by the Environmental Protection Agency.  It would seem that it is those on the Right who don't want people to know the true cost of cap-and-trade.
