Orrin Hatch Fires Back at Sherrod Brown for Claiming Tax Bill Is ‘For the Rich’

During a Senate Finance Committee hearing on the Senate’s version of the tax-reform bill, committee chairman Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) pushed back against Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) after Brown claimed that the bill favors the wealthy. Hatch cited his record of defending middle- and lower-class Americans and his own experience growing up in the lower middle class.

The committee approved the Senate version of the bill along party lines, 14–12, during a vote at the end of the hearing.
