Re "Avoiding the cliff: Utah's delegates don't get it" (Our View, Nov. 18)

The Tribune editorial board laments that our representatives — Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, and Reps. Rob Bishop, Jason Chaffetz and Jim Matheson, "don't get it" with respect to the fiscal cliff.

Yet The Tribune endorsed Hatch, Bishop, Chaffetz and Matheson for re-election, with the argument that they are experienced leaders in Congress.

Now it appears that our leaders are all heading the wrong way. Who could have guessed?
