FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon commented on the announcement that Senator Orrin Hatch will retire at the end of the year:
“We thank Sen. Hatch for his service in the Senate, and we wish him the very best.
“2018 is a year of tremendous policy opportunity. While we often have different policy views than the senator, we hope that we can work together this year to lower federal spending, which is the next logical and necessary step after tax reform.
“We also encourage him to support welfare reform, so we can ensure that Americans in poverty are given every opportunity to better their situations and contribute to society. We owe it to the most vulnerable in our society to provide them the opportunity to live the American Dream and we hope to work alongside Senator Hatch to make this dream a reality.”
