    I’m not with FreedomWorks, I’m not a wacko libertarian, I’m just an average, everyday voter who has watched Orrin Hatch feed at the Big Government trough for way too long.
    You had your time, Orrin. You became fabulously wealthy from your service. You actively worked to CREATE the mess that Washington DC is today. Please just go away.

    To the nephew: You know nothing of recent history. Where were you when Sen. Hatch took on Big Labor…when he supported President Reagan’s roll-back of Washington’s control of transportation, communication etc. How old were you then? He was called a right-wing wacko then, just as right-wing wackos are taking pot shots at him now.

    Orrin feeding at the government trough? He cleverly winnowed away at the size of government with a scalpel when others would have thrashed about making noise and accomplishing nothing.

    He will bury Liljenquist who could stand eating his portion of humble pie.

    Orrin Hatch anti-constitution?

    Only in Utah would some numbskull say such a thing.

    Hatch voted for the Patriot Act… ergo he’s anti-Constitution. Any Senator that voted for it, needs to GO…which means all GOP Senators besides PAUL AND LEE…
