Is it not time for Sen. Orrin Hatch to decide who he represents? ("Time to reform government, cut spendingm" by Orrin Hatch, Opinion, Jan. 5).
Many Americans agree with Hatch that the recent fiscal cliff legislation did nothing to overhaul our broken tax code, and higher taxes may not solve our growing debt crisis. However, the American people have come to a parting of the ways with Hatch and his allies on where to cut government spending.
Strong majorities of Americans approve of Social Security, say the government should do whatever it takes to protect the environment and prefer universal health care.
