Why Orrin Hatch

With your vote at the primary election on June 26th, Senator Hatch will likely be the next chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. This means that for the first time in 80 years, a Utahn will be able to set a pro-growth, pro-job creation agenda for America. Learn More »

Balanced Budget Amendment

Reducing spending, restoring Constitutional limits on the size of government, and balancing Washington's books are essential to our nation's future. A pivotal piece of accomplishing that goal is to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. I have led this charge by sponsoring and co-sponsoring a Balanced Budget Amendment 24 times during my tenure. Learn More »

Repeal ObamaCare

Health care choices should not be made by the federal government and bureaucrats; they should be made by consumers and patients. The unconstitutional federal mandate forces citizens to purchase health care while making it more expensive for employers to provide insurance. Learn More »

Utah Lands

One of the more troubling issues facing the people of Utah is the federal governments stranglehold on Utah's lands.

The only way to reverse this fiscal train wreck is to rein in Washington's out of control expenditures. Learn More »

Entitlement Reform

Entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are the biggest driver of our national debt. They are already 60 percent of federal spending and that number is only going up.

Utah Values

Every day in the Senate, I fight for the rights of individual liberty that Utahns hold dear. Utahns know that keeping taxes lower and limiting the scope of the federal government is critical to business growth, increased freedoms and economic prosperity. Families in Utah live within their means and balance their budgets and it is time for the federal government to follow suit. Learn More »

Cut Spending

The liberals look around at economic problems and vote to raise taxes and pay for even more ineffective and inefficient social programs. When I look at these problems I understand that lowering taxes and giving money back to citizens is a more direct and more constitutional way to get us back to prosperity. Learn More »

Lower Taxes

We are all bombarded by complex economic explanations for the current mess we are in. However, I'd like you to pause for a moment and forget about the Nation. Ask yourself this question: In my household, what happens when I spend more money than I make? In my home this would be a disaster. This country is spending more money than ever, and common sense screams this can't go on. Learn More »
