Orrin Hatch Calls Obamacare Supporters;The Stupidest, Dumbass People I’ve Ever Met

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is apparently sick of people who support affordable health care.

On Thursday, the Republican politician called supporters of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, “the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met,” according to Salt Lake City station KSTU.

Hatch made the comments during a speech about the recent GOP tax overhaul that repealed the health care law’s individual mandate, according to The Hill.

The insult came after Hatch referred to “that wonderful bill called ‘Obamacare.’”

“Now, if you didn’t catch on, I was being very sarcastic,” he said.

Hatch then called the Affordable Care Act “the stupidest, dumbass bill that I’ve ever seen.”

He added:

“Now, some of you may have loved it. If you do, you are one of the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met. This was one of them — and there are a lot of ’em up on Capitol Hill from time to time.”

Hatch’s comments came the same day the Kaiser Family Foundation released a poll saying the Affordable Care Act was popular with 54 percent of the population.

That’s the highest level of support since the law was enacted in 2010, according to The Hill.

Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock tried to put a Band-Aid on the senator’s Obamacare insults.

“The comments were obviously made in jest, but what’s not a joke is the harm Obamacare has caused for countless Utahns,” Whitlock told KSTU.

In January, the 83-year-old Hatch announced he would retire from the Senate at the end of 2018. He has served in the office since 1977.


Boltarama: “195,000 Utahns signed up for health insurance under Obamacare for 2018 — nearly matching last year’s number, when the enrollment period was twice as long, the Trump administration reported Thursday. About 130,000 people were expected to be covered in 2018 by Intermountain Healthcare SelectHealth, while University of Utah Health Plans signed up 25,000 in the six-week open enrollment period that ended Dec. 15, the insurers told The Salt Lake Tribune.” He’s talking to you folks who voted for him since the beginning of time!!

Colonel: Hatch just insulted over 1/3 of Trump’s base.


dmacho: TRUMP folks all have STD ” stupid trump disorder ”

Lloyd: Orin Hatch died 10 years ago. He just hasn’t fallen over yet.

Samuel: Says the guy who supports Trump.

trijamma: I agree Obamacare isn’t great. But it’s better than anything Republicans have proposed, which is nothing but trying to tear down an honest attempt to fix health care.

Jason: Yeah, people that want access to affordable healthcare for their families are stupid. Thanks so much Senator.

Gumby: Hillary was crucified for calling racists deplorable, but its okay for Orrin Hatch to call people who want universal healthcare stupid.

Bob P: Let Hatch retire, but for God’s sake don’t let him become an usher taking hold of a collection plate at the Mormon Tabernacle.
