Update from Orrin Hatch, U.S. Senator

...

Fellow Utahn,

With each passing day, it seems that one-by-one, another one of President Obama’s promises on the recently passed health care law bites the dust.

This week, I helped lead an effort to debunk the claim: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” We now know that ObamaCare will increase the deficit, raise health care costs, eliminate health care choices, cost us much needed jobs, tax Americans who earn less much less than $250,000 and so much more. A lot of people are afraid that this is a done deal that there’s nothing we can do about ObamaCare, but I am not one of them.

This week I introduced two bills that repeal the most insidious provisions at the heart of ObamaCare — the unconstitutional individual mandate and the job-killing employer mandate. The fight is not going to be easy, but, I say, it’s a fight we must win: “If we don’t do this, if we don’t repeal this thing, and this is a way of getting rid of that bill, these two bills are a way of getting rid of the health care bill. If we don’t repeal this then I guarantee you within three or four years, they’ll throw their hands in the air and say it’s not working, we’ve got to go to a single payer system, otherwise known as socialized medicine. I don’t want to go to socialized medicine.”

This week’s update also features articles on my efforts to require drug testing in order to receive welfare or unemployment benefits.

Sincerely, Senator Hatch
