One thought on “Recent Senate and House Votes

  1. Senator Hatch has been voting right since his colleague was ousted for not being Conservative. He’s a political hypocrite. He supported the Auto and Bank bailouts and says he’s Conservative and supports free-market principles. This is the same as Obama promising the masses they’ll continue to get handouts at the expense of others. Senator Hatch is big Government through and through. He was the 3rd highest earmarker in Washington in 2010. The record doesn’t lie.
