Message from Orrin Hatch, U.S. Senator

This week, Senator Hatch held a town hall meeting in St. George. About 300 Utahns showed up, and the chief issue — among their concerns – is the out-of-control spending in Washington.

"Addressing a largely conservative Southern Utah crowd during a sometimes emotional town hall meeting in St. George, Hatch, a 34-year veteran of the Senate, said he has long been a champion of conservative issues. The problem, he said, is that he has been fighting an uphill battle for each of those years against a Senate that hasn’t had a majority of ‘fiscal conservatives.’

"Saying the Obama administration is leading the country toward bankruptcy, that the federal government has not secured borders to deal with illegal immigration and that liberal Democrats in Washington are pushing for socialism, Hatch told the crowd it would take experienced, effective leaders to make a difference.

"’I’m in the middle of a lot of those battles and it would be a lot worse if I wasn’t there,’ he said." (St. George Spectrum, June 2, 2010)

This week’s update also features an article about Korean War veteran Robert Wahlen, of Odgen, who was awarded two Purple Hearts for injuries he received during the war — which he never received. Senator Hatch had the honor of presenting this true American hero with one of the two Purple Hearts over Memorial Day weekend.
