Question: "With all the talk about military reductions, what are you doing to ensure that Hill Air Force Base will survive the cuts?" (Steve Larsen)

Hatch: “I can’t remember a month where I haven’t worked hard for Hill Air Force Base.  If you have just two freshman senators there, you would not have the experience, you would not have the reputation that it takes years to build that can get top authorities out there at the right time and do the right things.”

I agree with Hatch on a lot of things. But I think most citizens would hardly qualify oil companies actions as "providing a service" to us.

Why didn't you ask him why he voted for the NDAA? Patriot Act?

Orrin Hatch does not protect the Constitution, regardless of his other "pragmatic" ways.
