Hatch: This is Historic
Utah Senator says, “The Democrats have said that the American people will remember this night. I hope they do.”
WASHINGTON – Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) joined Senate Republicans early this morning in a press conference to praise Senate passage of the first tax overhaul in more than three decades.
“I have to say that this is a historic night,” Hatch said at the press conference. “The Democrats have said that the American people will remember this night. I hope they do. We passed one of the most important tax breaks in this country's history and these folks here behind us all have contributed and made this a possibility a reality. So I am just very grateful for my colleagues and for those who were willing to stand up and do this for the American people and for the American families.”
The conference report on H.R. 1 now goes to the House of Representatives for a final vote and, upon passage, will then head to the president’s desk for his signature.
