President Barack Obama is losing the support of liberals and independents because his campaign promises don't match his actions, says Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.
 
Obama hasn't paid attention to jobs and the economy, Chaffetz said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
 
"We're worse off for his excessive spending," Chaffetz said. "They went out and spent over $800 billion on this stimulus. We look back now, what did we get for it? We're mired in scandal."
 
More than 100,000 additional federal workers are on the job since Obama took office in 2009, he said. "Has anybody seen a difference? Does suddenly transportation work better in this country because . . . we were just short on personnel?"
