GOP Senator Orrin Hatch stunned his colleagues on Friday after he absolutely unloaded on Dem. Sen. Sherrod Brown over liberal “bullcrap” regarding the nation’s tax debate; saying he was sick and tired of left-wing talking points claiming Republicans only favor the rich.
“I come from poor people, and I’ve been here working my whole stinking career for people who don’t have a chance, and I really resent it when you say that I’m just doing this for the rich. Give me a break,” said Hatch.
“I think you guys overplay that all the time and it gets old. Frankly, you ought to quit it,” he added. “I get sick and tired of it. True, it’s a nice political play, but it’s not true […] What you said was not right. I come from the lower middle-class and we didn’t have anything, so don’t spew that stuff on me.”
“I’ve had a reputation of having worked together with Democrats,” said the Senator from Utah. “I’ve got more bills passed than everybody on this committee put together. They’ve passed for the benefit of people in this country.”
“I like you personally very much, but I’m telling you, this bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while,” he added.
