"Cut The Crap": Orrin Hatch Torches Ohio Democrat During Tax Reform Hearing

'Don't spew that stuff on me'...'I get a little tired of that crap'
Shouting match erupts in Senate over GOP tax plan



A shouting match erupted in the Senate Finance hearing over the Republican tax overhaul, with Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown and Utah Republican Orrin Hatch arguing Thursday night over who benefits from the GOP plan.

At the heart of the argument is new analysis by congressional number crunchers that finds the plan cuts taxes at first but by 2027 actually raises taxes for anyone making less than $75,000.

"When the Republicans are in power, the first thing they want to do is give tax cuts to the rich. That's just what's — it's in their DNA," Brown said.

Brown's attack got under the skin of Hatch.

"I've been here working my whole stinking career for people who don't have a chance. And I really resent anybody saying that I'm just doing this for the rich. Give me a break," Hatch said. "I think you guys overplay that all the time and it gets old. And frankly you ought to quit it."
