Hatch: After Latest Sebelius Hearing, I ‘Feel Even Worse About ObamaCare’

‘Sooner or later, we have to face the fact that this bill is a dog’

HATCH: "I've learned a lot of things that made me feel even worse about ObamaCare. I think the secretary tried to put a good face on it, but she had to pretty well admit it's been a disaster, that people's privacy information could be compromised; that even felons could be navigators, you know, a lot of things that are just plain wrong with this, and we knew were wrong. We asked for a delay so that they could get things right even though, you know, sooner or later, we have to face the fact that this bill is a dog, and any time you see a bill like this pass by 100 percent one side, with zero from the other side, you know it's got real problems."
KILMEADE: "Well we thought the bill -- if there was a problem, we'd find out about it. We didn't know there would be problems actually getting the bill up and working. That's where we're at. You pushed over, and over again, for a delay. Democrats saying, including Max Bachus, a delay. The Administration is saying no delay. Why?"
HATCH: "Well, I think they're stupid not to get a delay. I think the problem is, is that they know that if they show any weakness on this, it justifies all that we've been saying about it. But they've shown a lot of weakness. You know, this business, 'if you want to keep your doctor, you'll be able to keep him,' that's a lie. This business that the president has said about ObamaCare is just not true. And frankly, it's proven to be not true. Not only that, but it's going to cost an arm and a leg. People aren't going to be able to keep their own policies in most cases. It is really a dog. Even the grandfather clause doesn't work. Now the president is changing his tune and saying that, 'well it's the -- it's been changed, we can change it.'"
