Sen. Hatch Warns of “outright war” if the Dems try Reconciliation

Senator Hatch is a pretty level-headed guy. He used to be a boxer, and if pushed — and I mean really pushed — the guy will come out swinging.

And boy, have the Dems pushed on ObamaCare.

So, when Senator Hatch makes the kind of threat he made recently, well, you’d have to be a few tacos short of the platter meal not to heed his words:

“Sen. Orrin Hatch threatened an all-out political “war” and promised a new high in partisan tensions if Democrats employ a rarely used Senate rule to win approval of their health reform bill….It is going to be outright war and it should be, because it would be such an abuse of the reconciliation rules,” Hatch said. “If they abuse those rules it is going to lead to even more heated animosities between not just the two parties, but even between individual senators.”

Troops, enjoy the R&R, weapons refits, and new ammo loads because we should all be on stand-by for another possible kamikaze attack by the desperate-Dems.

For my part, I’ve got a rail-car load of unused Claymores from the first time health care came up in the Senate.

What this really means is that the Republicans in the Senate will use every tactic at their disposal — if the Dems are crazy enough to try it.
