GOP Sen Hatch: Tax Reform ‘Much Harder Than Health Care’

Friday on CNBC, Senate Finance Committee chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said tax reform was “much harder than health care.”

Hatch said, “There’s no simple formula with regard to American tax reform. It’s complex.”

He continued, “It’s much harder than health care. First of all, it requires a lot of intellectual acumen to be able to handle these matters. Plus there are a lot of differences, a lot of differences of opinion on various aspects of the code. Democrats want more revenue so they can spend more money. Republicans want less revenue so we can bolster and increase the economy, get more jobs and opportunities for people. Those two philosophies seem to collide all the time. I’m hopeful we can bring both sides together. I’ve been able to do so in the past.”
