Orin Hatch "it was standard practice NOT to pay for things"



the right ran up the deficit on purpose

Sen. Hatch, who told the Associated Press that, when the Medicare expansion was passed in 2003, “it was standard practice not to pay for things.” The AP reported:

Some Republicans say they don’t believe the CBO’s projections that the health care overhaul will pay for itself. As for their newfound worries about big government health expansions, they essentially say: That was then, this is now.

Six years ago, “it was standard practice not to pay for things,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “We were concerned about it, because it certainly added to the deficit, no question.” His 2003 vote has been vindicated, Hatch said, because the prescription drug benefit “has done a lot of good.”
Of course they did, that has become a regular practice for them. When a responsible administration is saddled with paying down the debt, it is very difficult for them to implement progressive actions, the entire point of the GOP generated debt. For more on this alaming practice, the GOP lies in general and their true intentions, please read the book, "The Wrecking Crew."
the republican party has tried to harm government from the inside for decades now.

They do NOT want to govern they want to end governing
