Senator Sherrod Brown Out Here Pissing Off Republicans by Stating the Obvious

by

Via ABC News, here's Senator Sherrod Brown in a shouting match with Senator Orrin Hatch, of Utah, over the new Republican tax bill.

Hatch, who says he comes "from the poor people," resents Brown's "spouting off" about how the tax bill actually benefits the rich, despite Republican slogans to the contrary.

"I like you personally very much," Hatch tells Brown, "but I'm tellin' ya. This bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after awhile."

Brown contends that the Republican selling points of the tax bill — that it will raise wages by cutting the corporate tax rate, among other things — just aren't true.

Hatch says that Brown and the Democrats' contention that the tax bill is really for the rich is equally false, or at least disingenuous.

(Brown references CHIP in his remarks. That's the Children's Health Insurance Program that Congress let expire last month.)
