    "Republican" doesn't mean "small government". It never has.

    The Utah legislature, particularly the House, is progressive conservative statist in philosophy. The Republicans power elite will control everything in the name of "small government." Real Republicans fight them as hard as possible. The TP movement took a bad hit this year, but that is probably more a win for the Republican elite leadership than the voters.
