Joe Scarborough put out a supposed quote by Sen. Orrin Hatch talking about children’s health care.
.@SenOrrinHatch talking about children's health care: “I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves – won’t lift a finger – and expect the federal government to do everything.”

Of course, that drew an immediate response and sharp criticism from the Left.
I am just sitting here stunned. We need to remove these immoral people from power. https://t.co/WUTZYdF2m0

A child needs food. His parents quit their jobs. "Now we have no $ to feed him," the dad says. Millions of kids sick. Their working parents cant afford insurance. CHIP gets them care. GOP cuts taxes. "Now we have no $ for CHIP" Orrin Hatch says (real) The logic of selfishness.

Orrin Hatch, who went to law school on financial needs scholarship, thinks poor kids shouldn’t get health care. Really. https://t.co/CAu77FdoCP

Orrin Hatch claims we don't have enough money to pay for children to have healthcare. CHIP would cost 1% of the GOP tax bill he voted for. https://t.co/6dLskRwR9G
