Sen. Hatch continued, “Some of you may have loved it. If you do, you are one of the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met. There are a lot of them up there on Capitol Hill from time to time.”

Additionally, the GOP senator called Obamacare as one of the most “regressive taxes in the tax code. He cited the reason that lower-income families were paying most of the freight.”

Furthermore, Sen. Hatch also described the individual mandate as the “greatest ironies” of the law because it forces people to buy health insurance or pay a tax.

Moreover, the senator emphasized that the GOP tax reform law eliminated the individual mandate. It is a “major step forward in the ongoing effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.”

Sen. Schumer believes Sen. Hatch is “usually a polite man”

In an interview with CNN, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer commented that he was surprise to hear Sen. Hatch’s remarks.

According to Sen. Schumer, his colleague is “usually a very polite man.” He believes that Sen. Hatch “sort of lost it” during his speech. He also suggested that the senator from Utah probably was “just frustrated because the American people are against” repealing Obamacare.
