I am so happy to see Sen. Orrin Hatch has decided to retire.

I have always found it ironic that he ran his first campaign on the premise that three terms were plenty for Frank Moss, and yet served double that and then some.

One of the things ruining this nation is career politicians like Hatch who lose their perspective and become beholden to deep-pocket benefactors, instead of doing for the people who elected them.

Sen. Hatch, your legacy as far as I am concerned is your complicity in the rape of the beautiful areas known as Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, for which you and your colleagues should be ashamed.
