Senator Orrin Hatch: Ready To Sacrifice His Life For Your Taxes

I was pointed to this story by State of the Beehive. Apparently, Senator Hatch is promising that if he's re- elected, he'll be the new chairman of the finance committee. Then he'll fix the tax system "or die trying". Well, because it took him 30 years to consider possibly addressing tax reform I dont' doubt he'll die in his attempt. At least he's telling the truth on that.

At his age, "or die trying" is a very real possibility...

I saw Orrin at Smith's once. His shopping cart was full to the rim with vegetables and produce. With his healthy diet of leafy greens, and his daily dose of vitimins and supplements, he'll probably bury us all.

His longevity could easily set a record. If he wins in 2006, and wins two more terms after that, he will break Strom Thurmond's longest-serving-senator streak of 46 years sometime in 2023 at the age of 89.

I went to the store today. I got lime flavored Tostitos and olive loaf.

I'm not sure taxpayers will survive if perma-Hatch fixes the finance committee as well as he did the judiciary committee.

Maybe he can write us a song about it.

tax reform can be a good thing, or a terrible thing. If Hatch's mission is to an Administration hachet man and waterboy, well then count me out.

I am tired of tax cuts for the rich during a war. Meanwhile, there are tons of hidden regressive taxes being hiked on everyday people. Nationally our overall taxes have gone up under Bush.

Don't even get me started on Tuition and cancelling Perkins loans.
