I agree with this letter. Sen. Hatch talks a good fight and says he will
exercise "tough fiscal management." But he helped cause our crushing
debt in the first place. And he accepts no responsibility or blame. How can
we trust a man to fix the problem he helped cause, especially if he believes
that he didn't?So far the main role of Hatch's so-called
"balanced budget amendment" has been to serve as political cover for him
while he continues to spend us into oblivion. Hatch's glaring hypocrisy
is on display for all to see.E. Grant Rees is right. Dan
Liljenquist is the right choice.
Hatch has never given any kind of estimate or sample of a budget that would
comply with his amendment. I suppose that's because he knows it can't
be done, except in a way that would infuriate the vast majority of Americans.
Liljenquist is good, Hatch is better. This is no time to be experimenting with
young blood. If we are ever going to get close to balancing the budget, we need
to elect Orrin Hatch. Mitt Romney and Gov. Herbert agree.
Apricot tree: Mitt Romney's and Gary Herbert's
endorsements of Hatch are reasons NOT to vote for him. And why is young blood
worse than old, worn-out, anemic, contaminated blood? In the end,
vote for Scott Howell.
Grant Rees is right on! Hatch is duplicitous. This so-called "balance
budget amendment" is nothing more than a smokescreen. Mitt Romney will
work just fine with Dan Liljenquist. I support Governor Herbert, but he's
wrong on this one. Young blood is just as "worthy" as older blood.
Finally, there is NO better time than the present to chart a new path for Utah
and the nation. Out with the old. It's NOW TIME for DAN! Vote Dan on
Scott Howell. Honest. Sensible. Pragmatic. That's the kind of person we
need in that office.
We've got some passionate Scott Howell fans here. Even though there are a
total of about 10 people on all of these threads, it is still a nice check and
balance system. Fun. Curmudgeon: Old - yes. Worn-out, anemic,
contaminated...? We'll see what Utah thinks about those. :)
Re: Apricot Tree: Hatch USED to be good. Liljenquist is much better. Some
people say, "You don't change horses in the middle of the stream."
But if the horse is pulling you under, it's much wiser to change. This
time, Liljenquist is the best choice, by far.
Peanut Gallery : Obviously, we don't agree.
Thirty Six years! Who has given this guy a pass and elected him.
