    Come learn how you, too can get free free FREE money from the federal government! Will Hatch be there in a gray suit covered in big question marks? And people wonder why we’re $17 TRILLION in debt and have more than half the country unable or unwilling to survive without government handouts. As a side note, most people in St. George don’t realize that the zany Matthew Lesko (the guy in the question mark suit on the infomercials for all those years hocking “free government money”) was a lead generator for Jeremy Johnson and similar scammers. You’d buy Lesko’s “free money” program for $40 or whatever, would fall flat on your face and get nowhere (it’s designed that way on purpose), then they’d call you and sell you a load of bull about how they need success stories for their next infomercial and have chosen you to work with them. All you need is $5k – $15k (that actually got as high as $50k+!!!) free on your credit cards and they’ll take care of the rest. A new one is born every second…

    Hatch has been in office since 1977. He is clearly part of the problem and the current state of the nation is due to his actions and votes. When will UT people have enough? It’s not supposed to be a lifetime appointment, yet incumbents have gerrymandered their territories into a 90+% reelection rate. Entertainment addicted ignoramuses get what they deserve.

      amen! Hatch has done more damage to Utah and America than most others. Who do you think paved the way for Obama’s big government ideas? Hatch
