In case you were wondering, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is a pro when it comes to barf-bag usage.
The high-flying lawmaker says that while he’s never had motion sickness before, riding in a military plane had stomach-churning results: “There’s nothing like this in all the world.”
Now that he has his feet back on the ground, Chaffetz says he wants to “fight to keep our Air Force base and Utah Test and Training Range,” which is set to cut more than 250 jobs due to restructuring.
And he heaped praise on the men and women of the Air Force who regularly take to the skies — especially their ability to keep their dinners down — saying, “I’d like to think I could build up the stomach muscles to actually survive without barfing, but they’re a different breed.”
