Orrin Hatch is off his meds

Senator Hatch: Healthcare reform bills threaten survival of two-party system

The healthcare reform proposals before Congress threaten the existence of the two-party system, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) alleged Monday morning.

Hatch asserted that the health bills, which he believes represent a “step-by-step approach to socialized medicine,” will lead to Americans’ dependence on Democrats for their health and other issues.

“And if they get there, of course, you’re going to have a very rough time having a two-party system in this country, because almost everybody’s going to say, ‘All we ever were, all we ever are, all we ever hope to be depends on the Democratic Party,’ “ Hatch said during an interview with the conservative CNSNews.com.

“That’s their goal,” Hatch added. “That’s what keeps Democrats in power.”</em>

Of course, when the party attempting to stay in power forEVAH was the GOP, Hypocrite Hatch had no problem with it, one suspects.

What Hatch is actually saying, of course, is that if the Democrats succeed in actually doing something about a problem that is welcomed by the public, then they will be more popular.

Hmm, perhaps Hatch and his corporate cronies should have thought of that tactic, eh?
