On Doug Wright's KSL Radio program recently, guest Sen. Orrin Hatch summed up his beliefs on recent Obamacare implementation problems as "I believe that President Obama and the Democratically controlled Congress passed Obamacare with the full intent it would fail during implementation. They would then be able to implement a full government single-payer system, which is what they wanted from the start."

Really, Sen. Hatch? Is this how you represent the state of Utah? Are you into conspiracy theories with 9/11 and President Kennedy as well? Or have you reached that age where not everything is clicking upstairs?

I am used to being embarrassed by the antics of Sen. Mike Lee. We don't need any more embarrassing remarks such as the ones Sen. Hatch espoused on Doug Wright's radio program.
