WASHINGTON — After Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said that millionaires paying more taxes to save the economy was “rather pathetic,” another Republican senator spoke against the proposal, suggesting that the poor take the burden instead of the rich.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) voted against the measure Thursday, demanding that poor middle-class Americans need to do more.
“I hear how they’re so caring for the poor and so forth,” Hatch said in remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday, in reference to Democrats. “The poor need jobs! And they also need to share some of the responsibility.”
