Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) used campaign funds last year to pay nearly $3,000 for goods and services at a Salt Lake City Apple store, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.
Earlier this week, the Utah congressman had suggested that Americans choose between buying an iPhone or paying for healthcare. When CNN host Alisyn Camerota pointed out that access to healthcare for low-income Americans was not the same as providing coverage, Chaffetz responded: “Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own healthcare. They’ve got to make those decisions themselves.”
