Compassionate Conservatism: Orrin Hatch Edition
Orrin Hatch said the poor need to do more to help pay off the deficit.
"I hear how they're so caring for the poor and so forth," Hatch said in remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday, in reference to Democrats. "The poor need jobs! And they also need to share some of the responsibility."
Hatch doesn't feel that "responsibility" should be shared by millionaires and billionaires. Hatch voted against a non-binding resolution that said the rich should do reduce the federal debt. The only Democrat to vote against the resolution was Ben Nelson. Hatch and Nelson are so owned by the rich that they will vote to filibuster a non-binding resolution. The resolution passed 74 to 22. The Senate will waste time debating a toothless resolution.
