The Senate Finance Committee chair, Orrin Hatch, is furious with the Democrats that work in Congress after they walked out on Monday.
“I’m very disappointed in this kind of crap,” he said after Democrats left the Committee hearing. “Some of this is because they just don’t like the president.”
“This is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen in my whole time in the United States Senate,” he added.
Although his tone was peaceful and steady, he remarked a deep sense of disappointment.
The Democrats’ decision to leave the hearing was a result of their dissatisfaction and protest against the confirmation votes for Department of Health and Human Services secretary nominee Tom Price and Department of the Treasury secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin.
“We have great concern that Chairman Hatch is asking us to vote today on two nominees who out-and-out lied to our committee,” Sen. Sherrod Brown stated.
In their opinion the aforementioned candidates were unfit to hold these positions.
What worried the Democrats tremendously was Price’s “investment activity in various medical companies, and whether he improperly mixed his political activity with his personal portfolio” as well as how Mnuchin will handle being head of the OneWest Bank.
According to the Hill, the main concern was if Mnuchin would treat the homeowners in a proper manner., especially those who were facing foreclosure.
Although these doubts are not illogical, the Democrats didn’t even bother to give the candidates the benefit of the doubt. They voted against them and left the hearing, like they were a bunch of 6-year-olds.
After Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20, Democrats have been trying desperately to pin him any issue and irregularity there is in this country. They are just forgetting that if there was any problem left in America it is because of Barack Obama’s politics in the past two mandates, and Trump has nothing to do with it.
Even more, Donald Trump is ready to amend every error that Obama did, and you gotta start somewhere, right?
