James David "Jim" Matheson (b. March 21, 1960, in Salt Lake City, UT) was a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of Utah. He represented Utah's 4th Congressional District.

Matheson was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He earned his B.A. from Harvard University in 1982 and his MBA from the University of California in 1987.[2] Matheson served as one of the Chief Deputy Whips of the Democratic caucus for the 113th Congress.[3]

National security


Yea3.png Matheson voted in support of HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[9]

DHS Appropriations

Yea3.png Matheson voted in support of HR 2217 - the DHS Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 and was largely along party lines.[9]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Nay3.png Matheson voted in opposition of House Amendment 69, which would have amended HR 3 to "require that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, conduct a study of the vulnerabilities of the Keystone XL pipeline to a terrorist attack and certify that necessary protections have been put in place." The amendment failed on May 22, 2013, with a vote of 176 - 239 and was largely along party lines.[9]

CISPA (2013)

Yea3.png Matheson voted in support of HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill permitted federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities.[10] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[9]


2014 Farm bill

Nay3.png On January 29, 2014, the U.S. House approved the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, H.R. 2642, known as the Farm Bill.[11] The bill passed by a vote of 251-166. The nearly 1,000-page bill provides for the reform and continuation of agricultural and other programs of the Department of Agriculture through 2018. The $1 trillion bill expanded crop insurance for farmers by $7 billion over the next decade and created new subsidies for rice and peanut growers that would kick in when prices drop.[12][13] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[13] Matheson voted with 102 other Democratic representatives against the bill.

2014 Budget

Yea3.png On January 15, 2014, the Republican-run House approved H.R. 3547, a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September 30, 2014.[14][15] The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and three Democrats voting against the bill.[15] The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations.[16] It included a 1 percent increase in the paychecks of federal workers and military personnel, a $1 billion increase in Head Start funding for early childhood education, reduced funding to the Internal Revenue Service and the Environmental Protection Agency, and the protection of the Affordable Care Act from any drastic cuts. Matheson joined with the majority of the Democratic party and voted in favor of the bill.[14][15]

2013 Farm bill
See also: United States Farm Bill 2013

Nay3.png Matheson voted against the Farm Bill on July 11, 2013. The bill passed in a 216-208 vote.[17] The bill passed included farm policy, but did not include food stamps.[18]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Yea3.png On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[19] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[20] Matheson voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[21]

Yea3.png The shutdown ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[22] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Matheson voted for HR 2775.[23]

Morton Memos Prohibition

Nay3.png Matheson voted against House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States.[24] The vote largely followed party lines.[25]

Social issues

House vote on abortion ban

Yea3.png On June 18, 2013, the House voted 228-196 on HR1797, mostly along party lines, to approve a ban on abortions occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy.[26][27][28] A number of members crossed over party lines in their votes. The vote was largely symbolic, as the Senate was not expected to take up the bill, and the White House threatened to veto the legislation.[29] Matheson was one of six Democratic members who voted in favor of the ban.

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal cliff

Nay3.png Matheson voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003, while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was one of 16 Democrats that voted against the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257-167 vote on January 1, 2013.[30]


American response in Syria

See also: United States involvement in Syria

More than 100 House lawmakers signed a letter urging President Barack Obama to call Congress back into session if he planned to use military force in Syria.[31]

Rep. Scott Rigell wrote in the letter in August 2013, “engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution.”[31][32]

The members of Congress believed that Obama should have asked Congress for permission before engaging in Libya. The letter asked, “If the use of 221 Tomahawk cruise missles, [sic] 704 Joint Direct Attack Munitions, and 42 Predator Hellfire missiles expended in Libya does not constitute ‘hostilities,’ what does?”[32]

The letter stated, “If you deem that military action in Syria is necessary, Congress can reconvene at your request. We stand ready to come back into session, consider the facts before us, and share the burden of decisions made regarding U.S. involvement in the quickly escalating Syrian conflict."[32]

A total of 98 Republicans signed the letter. Matheson was one of 18 Democratic members to sign the letter.[32]

Speaker of the House vote

In January 2013, Matheson broke with fellow Democratic members to cast his vote for Michigan representative John Dingell (D) for Speaker of the House, instead of California's 12th Congressional District Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D).[33]

House vote on Obamacare

Matheson was one of two Democrats that voted to defund Obamacare in September 2013. The bill also included funding the government for the rest of 2013. Matheson said, "It is irresponsible to add unrelated provisions to legislation to keep our government running. I have always preferred straightforward legislating that avoids political games. However, I believe we should avoid shutting down the government, and I voted for a continuing resolution to keep the legislative process working toward that end today."[34]

Campaign themes


According to Matheson's website, his campaign themes included:

  • Small Businesses: "...worked to provide tax, lending and investment incentives to small businesses so that they can grow and hire."
  • Budget: "...believes it is fiscally reckless and morally wrong to pile debt on future generations...the only way to turn things around is to make serious structural changes to the federal budget process."
  • Healthcare: " We pay too much and get too little out of our system and the costs are driving our country deeper into debt."[35]



Matheson was rumored to be considering a run for governor or for the U.S. Senate in 2016.[36]

Matheson did not seek re-election in 2014.[37]

Vulnerable incumbent

According to a Washington Post article in December 2012, Matheson would have been one of the 10 most vulnerable incumbents in 2014.[38]

According to a March 2012 article in Roll Call, Matheson was one of the top ten most vulnerable incumbents.[39]

The National Republican Congressional Committee listed Matheson's seat as one of seven early targets in the 2014 congressional elections.[40]

Matheson was a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program was designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.[41]

On May 19, 2013, Republican Mia Love announced she would run against Matheson in a rematch of the 2012 election for Utah's 4th Congressional District seat. Matheson later announced he would not seek re-election.[42]


Due to district boundary changes following the 2011 redistricting, Matheson ran for re-election in Utah's 4th Congressional District in 2012. He ran unopposed in the Democratic primary and defeated Mia Love (R) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[43][44]

According to the website Daily Kos, this race was one of nine top-ballot 2012 races that contained Libertarian candidates who received more total votes than was the difference between the Democratic winner and the GOP runner-up. In this case, Jim Vein took in over 3,000 more votes than the number that separated Matheson and Love.[45]

See also: Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress)

The Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress) is a two-part measurement that illustrates the extent to which members of the U.S. Congress have prospered during their tenure as public servants.
It consists of two different metrics:

PGI: Change in net worth

See also: Changes in Net Worth of U.S. Senators and Representatives (Personal Gain Index) and Net worth of United States Senators and Representatives
Net Worth Metric graphic.png

Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org, Matheson's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $1,006,027 to $2,590,000. That averages to $1,798,013.50, which is lower than the average net worth of Democratic House members in 2012 of $5,700,168.36. Matheson ranked as the 157th most wealthy representative in 2012.[62] Between 2004 and 2012, Matheson's calculated net worth[63] increased by an average of 20 percent per year. Between 2004 and 2012, the average annual percentage increase for a member of Congress was 15.4 percent.[64]

Jim Matheson Yearly Net Worth
YearAverage Net Worth
Growth from 2004 to 2012:162%
Average annual growth:20%[65]
Comparatively, the American citizen experienced a median yearly decline in net worth of -0.94%.[66]
The data used to calculate changes in net worth may include changes resulting from assets gained through marriage, inheritance, changes in family estates and/or trusts, changes in family business ownership and many other variables unrelated to a member's behavior in Congress.

PGI: Donation Concentration Metric

See also: The Donation Concentration Metric (U.S. Congress Personal Gain Index)

Filings required by the Federal Election Commission report on the industries that give to each candidate. Using campaign filings and information calculated by OpenSecrets.org, Ballotpedia calculated the percentage of donations by industry received by each incumbent over the course of his or her career (or 1989 and later, if elected prior to 1988). Matheson received the most donations from individuals and PACs employed by the Health Professionals industry. Comparatively, the top industry employer in Utah's 4th Congressional District was Educational services, and health care and social assistance, according to a 2012 U.S. Census survey.[67]
