A Senate Finance Committee hearing devolved into a shouting match late Thursday after Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) took umbrage at Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown\u0026#039;s suggestion that \u0022it would be nice\u0022 if Republicans would acknowledge that their tax plan \u0022really is not for the middle class, it\u0026#039;s for the rich.\u0022\u0022When Republicans are in power, the first thing they want to do is give tax cuts to the rich,\u0022 Brown said. \u0022It\u0026#039;s in their DNA.\u0022Brown clearly \u0022hit a soft spot,\u0022 as Hatch retorted angrily that he is \u0022from the lower middle class originally\u0022 and said any characterization of the GOP tax plan as pro-rich is \u0022bullcrap.\u0022\u0022I\u0026#039;ve been here working my whole stinkin\u0026#039; career for people who don\u0026#039;t have a chance. I really resent anybody who says I\u0026#039;m just doing this for the rich. Give me a break,\u0022 Hatch said. \u0022I get kind of sick and tired of it.\u0022After Hatch\u0026#039;s brief monologue, Brown shot back—over the Republican\u0026#039;s gavel slams—that he gets \u0022sick and tired of the richest people in this country getting richer and richer. We do a tax cut for the rich and the middle class shrinks.\u0022Watch:Sherrod Brown really takes the fight to Orrin Hatch here. No Trumpian namecalling or low blows. Instead focusing on the GOP helping only the ultra-rich. Judging by how mad Hatch got, Brown hit a soft spot. pic.twitter.com/WxDFb8ipHB— Adam Best (@adamcbest) November 17, 2017\u0022It takes me a lot to get worked up like this,\u0022 Hatch exclaimed.
