—At times, Republicans sound as though they are writing Democrats’ campaign ads for them. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) made his in-kind contribution last week. Newsweek reported: “During the tax debate on Thursday evening, [Hatch] commented on the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), saying that it would be funded but that the lack of funds available was problematic for CHIP. … ‘There’s no question about it in my mind. It’s got to be done the right way. But we, the reason CHIP’s having trouble is because we don’t have money anymore,’ ” Hatch said as the Senate was considering a mammoth tax bill that will hemorrhage $1.5 trillion in revenue.
He went on, “I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves — won’t lift a finger — and expect the federal government to do everything.” He continued: “Unfortunately the liberal philosophy has created millions of people that way, who believe everything they ever are or hope to be depends upon the federal government rather than the opportunities that this great country grants them. And I’ve got to say, I think it’s pretty hard to argue against these comments.”—
