The Case Against Seniority- Letters to the editor

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints


Senator Hatch would have us believe that the opportunity Utahns have to defeat Obamacare and other socialist programs is an either/or proposition: either we re-elect him so he can work with Mitt Romney as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, or we will lose all opportunity for conservative reform. That simply is not true.

If Utahns choose to elect a dynamic new leader instead of Senator Hatch a very conservative Senator, Mike Crapo (Idaho), will chair the Senate Finance Committee. Mitt Romney will work with Senator Crapo to make the exact same changes he would make with Senator Hatch. In fact, Senator Crapo did not vote for TARP or the Bush Stimulus-acts of leadership most Utahns wish Hatch had taken as well. In the bigger picture, Senator Hatch has framed his entire campaign around his potential Chairmanship-offering delegates almost no justification for his re-election based on issues or accomplishments.

Leadership is a character trait. Senate seniority is a default circumstance. At this critical crossroads where Americans must choose between continued socialism or constitutional reform, we need leadership, not seniority. Lauren Curtis Tooele
