Statement from Integrity First PAC on Orrin Hatch’s vote to pass the GOP’s tax reform scam.
Tonight Senator Orrin Hatch joined his fellow Republicans in rejecting the will of the American people and voting for a massive transfer of wealth from poor and middle-class families to corporations and wealthy Americans.
Orrin Hatch crafted this transfer of wealth, and at the last minute, personally included a special provision that would enrich himself and other wealthy lawmakers.
This tax bill is a scam on the American people, and Orrin Hatch is a key architect of it.
Orrin Hatch claimed his tax plan would lower taxes on the middle-class. The truth is that tax cuts for average Americans are set to expire by 2027, while the corporate tax cuts are permanent.
It is no surprise that 75 percent of Utahns do not want Orrin Hatch to run for re-election. Long before this tax scam, Hatch has placed his donors, corporate interests, and his Party's agenda ahead of his constituents.
Orrin Hatch has set himself up to be enriched by his scam, and that will be his legacy. He should heed the call of the majority of Utahns and get out of the Senate.
