Chaffetz set to return to D.C. for key health care vote after being released from hospital

SALT LAKE CITY Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, is expected to head to Washington, D.C., Tuesday for a key health care vote despite recent foot surgery that he said would require up to a month of recovery.

Chaffetz was set to be released from University Hospital on Monday following an operation late last week to remove 14 screws and a metal plate placed in his foot after a fall from a ladder 12 years ago.

The 3rd District congressman said in an Instagram post last Wednesday he would be away from Washington for three to four weeks to have the surgery needed, he said, because of a risk of infection and recover.

But Chaffetz's spokeswoman, M.J. Henshaw, confirmed he was returning to Washington to vote on the revised version of Republicans' effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
