Welcome to Salt Lake Chocolate City

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), September 2009:

I believe we will obtain the best results when we allow states as much autonomy as possible to address their unique challenges. The principle of federalism works because it allows state and local governments to tailor their policy solutions to the needs of their populations.

Rep Jason Chaffetz just now:

Just dropped the Resolution of Disapproval re DC gay marriage. Will be H J Res 72

The distinguished gentleman from Utah’s solicitous concern for those of us who live here full time is duly noted—but really, it seems a little petty to take it out on us just because you got stuck with that whole “one wife” rule. Look, how about you let us figure out what kind of marriage policy we like in, you know, our city, and if at some point down the line, y’all want to go all “Big Love” again, I promise we won’t say boo this time.
