Hatch Statement On Senate Democrats


U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), the Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, made the following statement today, one day before the 1,000 th day since the Democrat-controlled Senate last passed a fiscal year budget:

“Only in Washington would Democrats keep trying to spend taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars while failing to even propose their own fiscal blueprint. After 1,000 days without a budget from Senate Democrats, Utahns aren’t getting the leadership or the fiscal restraint that they rightly are demanding. The only way we can leave a stronger America for our children and grandchildren is if we get serious about cutting spending, and that starts with passing a budget and following it. Utah families are forced to live by their budgets, and Washington must learn to do the same.”
