Some of you have made cracks about the "pension". Feinstein and Hatch
are both old enough that they may only take the pension for a couple of years
once they quit.Not too many positions do you find people older than
retirement age? Collectively LDS General Authorities would be the only one.I'm not a Feinstein fan but if she's in good health and wants
to run again, I'm fine with it. Same with Hatch.People whine
that they've both been there too long. Yet they keep winning elections by
wide margins. Wonder why? Do most of their constituents think they are doing a
good job? Apparently they do. Believe me both Utah and Kalifornia could do a
I wonder if their pensions will be forever protected? My guess is yes.
my two centsif hatch is the gop nominee in 2018, I'm writing in my
neighbor.10ccnot her possession? it's beyond that,
it's her identity, same with hatch, one reason they both need to go.the only thing to be said for them is they pre-date the
"borking" of judicial nominees, and lived through more civil times in
the senate. One has to wonder if they can remember them, though.
Three year term, and gone!Many Americans would love the honor of
serving their country.Sure the joy!
So, the Deseret News is trying to tell us -- Feinstein (D) -- old
id BADOrrin Hatch (R) -- old is GOOD
You mean someone is actually older than Orrin????
Maybe Dianne Feinstein hasn't found somebody she's comfortable
"giving" her seat to, similar to how Orrin Hatch sees his situation.(In reality, Feinstein doesn't view her position as Senator as a
"possession", which is the difference between politics in California,
Never voted for her when I lived in California. Out of touch in my opinion.
Needs to retire.
I am glad she is there working for the working families of America.
She's one of the few adults in the room. As long as she continue to do her
job well, there is no reason to leave. Of course this is a partisan position
which Republican will take exception. But that is the problem. Too much partisan
tribalism and not enough interest in working in the interests of the country.Unfortunately, partisanship is central to the political mindset plaguing
our government. There is a greater need for fellowship and movement to the
center rather than playing on the extreme fringe on either side.Leave your partisan feelings for you favorite sports team. When Dianne
Feinstein can't do her job anymore, then she should retire. Fortunately,
Barbara Boxer was replaced by Kamala Harris, but that's starting to get too
partisan. I would take anyone of intelligence, good sense and dedication to the
nation's and California's interests, even a moderate Republican with
vision and an appreciation for the diversity of the state.
@David"Feinstein and Hatch are both poster politicians of this
fact."Yet they keep winning re-election. Obviously, enough
voters are fine with them doing what they are doing.@libs think
what???"she and hatch should just retire"That's up to the voters.
she and hatch should just retire
It is so difficult to walk away from power. Feinstein and Hatch are both poster
politicians of this fact.
Oh good grief -- Cry me a river -- Feinstein is to OLD to
run?yet, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch is 83, and plans to run again. Boo--Hoo
