The Way Things Work

I should not be surprised that the Hatch re-election committee is among biggest donors to other Republican campaigns. The only consolation is that very little of that $200,000 he donated for candidates outside of Utah came from donors inside of Utah.

Hatch gets his money mostly from special interests outside the state. He casts his votes for whatever the national Republican party line dictates and he spends his time and energy doing whatever furthers his government backed interests. His only connection to Utah is that this is where he receives the votes to continue living in Washington D.C. without having to work on K Street.

What really irks me is that the people of Utah have considered this to be adequate representation for the last 3 decades so they keep sending him back. (Okay, I admit that I have not been paying attention to Senator Hatch for 3 decades so it’s possible that he was more representative of Utah when he started in the Senate.) It’s nice to see that more people are voicing their displeasure with our non-representative senator-for-life.

    I’ve never voted for him. Just because he has a lot of seniority is no reason to keep him in office. His policies are lousy.

    If only 60% of the Utah electorate had as much foresight as you.
