Response from Orrin Hatch

In response to the letter that I sent to my three congresscritters (2 sens and 1 rep), I got the following letter from Orrin Hatch (R-Utah):

Dear Ms. XXXX:

Thank you for contacting me to express your views about the results of the recent election. I appreciate hearing from you.

I have spent many years in the Senate as a member of the majority and the minority party, and I am known in the Senate as one who can reach across the aisle and work with the other party. I can get legislation through, regardless of which party is in power.

One thing that I have learned over the years — and it was a message sent to Congress by this election — is that Utahns and people throughout American [sic] want members of Congress to do something, not just oppose something. I am always grateful when members of both parties work together to move forward on issues that make a difference in the lives of those we represent.

Again, thank you for writing.

Orrin G. Hatch
United States Senator

Wow! He really got the message! We Utahns don't want a party to just oppose stuff, despite the fact that the party that did nothing but oppose (Dems) won and those who did nothing at all lost.

Way to go, Senator. Way to read the tea leaves.

BTW: Who is hogging all of Blogger's bandwidth these past couple of days? It takes forever to reach any Blogspot site, including mine.
