Orrin Hatch Gives GOP Weekly Address: Obama Offer A "Classic Bait-And-Switch"
GOP: In the Weekly Republican Address, U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, says comprehensive tax reform, solutions to protecting and strengthening entitlements, and reducing our nation's unsustainable debt are crucial to fixing the fiscal cliff. With the need for presidential leadership on a plan to avoid the tax hikes, Sen. Hatch says, "... the President has an obligation to first steer us away from the fiscal cliff...But we'll never get there with the unserious plan the President proposed this week." As only 30 days remain, Sen. Hatch presses, "The longer the White House waits to get serious is a day closer to going over the fiscal cliff, and the harder it will be to find a solution."
