Hatch unloads on Democrat’s claim that Republicans only help the rich (with video)

Sen. Orrin Hatch has had it with Democrats claiming Republicans only want to help wealthy Americans.

During Thursday’s debate on Hatch’s tax reform proposal, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown accused Republicans of writing the tax bill to benefit the rich. Hatch, was fed up and verbally torched Brown.

From Real Clear Politics:

“I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin’ career for people who don’t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I’m doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I think you guys overplay all the time, and it gets old. And frankly, you ought to quit it,” Hatch told Brown.


“What you said was not right,” Hatch continued. “I come from the lower middle class, originally. We didn’t have anything. So don’t spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that crap. Let me just say something. If we worked together, we could pull this country out of every mess it is in. We could do a lot of the things that you are talking about, too. I think I have had reputation for working together.”


“I like you very much personally,” Hatch said to Brown. “But this bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while. And then to do it right at the end of this is just not right.”
