Issue-oriented and revealing, this biography of the senior U. S. senator from Utah, Orrin Hatch, shines a light on the recent years of the Senate’s leading consensus builder for conservative ways to solve national problems. From his opposition to President Obama's health care bill to his repeated sponsorship of constitutional amendments to balance the federal budget, Hatch seldom leaves questions on where he stands. The political life of one of the nation’s most visible and influential senators is explored, from his toe-to-toe confrontations with both Democrats and his own Republican colleagues on issues from tax cuts and labor-law reform to terrorism and the war in Afghanistan. Engrossing and informative, with more than 100 pages of photos, this is a detailed, honest look at one of the leading conservative voices in America today attempting to renew the country for tomorrow.
