Utah's economy: It's Rep. Carol Spackman Moss's fault for not going to China

A year and a half ago, Utah House majority leader Dave Clark (R-Santa Clara) told Utahns it was essential to Utah's economy that he and 13 other legislator-types spend taxpayer money gallivanting around China. His argument was so persuasive that we lambasted Rep. Carol Spackman Moss (D-SLC) for deciding not to go just because she couldn't think of a legitimate reason to go:

Now we are really ticked at ex-teacher Carol Spackman Moss, who decided that the whole thing was a bunch of hooey and that she could not in good conscience go. "If I couldn't justify it to myself or my friends, then it wasn't worth it," Moss said in the Tribune article. Not everything is about you and your conscience, Rep. Moss. If Utah's economy goes straight to the toilet, we'll be pointing a finger at you and that empty seat on the China Fun Bus.

We warned you, Moss. If you had just done your boondoggling duty, we wouldn't be in this mess. That must be the reason why all that China business isn't flowing in yet. Otherwise, one might think those "It'll bring business to Utah" claims in '07 were indeed a pile of hooey.

How about the fact that she was going until Matt Canham wrote his article? She is a joke.

At least the public exposure mattered to her. It didn't dissuade the others, which seems far worse to me.

That seems far worse to you? Really? Even if the others thought that the state could reap some other sort of benefit and did not cower when they were ridiculed? Obviously she did not think that the trip was worth while, for the state that is. She did think, however, I can get a free trip unless someone notices then I can recant and claim righteous indignation. Seriously-- you really think that it was far worse? I have a lot to learn about this site and its authors. I must say you-re a good read. Happy holidays.
