The spirit of 1976, Part VII -- Seniority for Seniority's sake

Salt Lake Tribune, October 7, 1976, page 12B

Mr. Hatch also attacked the Senate Seniority system, saying: "Seniority for seniority's sake serves no useful purpose."

He told Dixie College students in St. George that "a Congress that has benn dominated for 40 of the past 44 years by Democrats has spent and spent our dollars, and all we can show for this fiscal irresponsibility is a drastic reduction in spendable real dollars and a questionable employment future for students who are graduating from our universities and colleges."

Sound familiar? The last part is just like what we have today, except the Republican congress is spending and spending our grandkids' money, not ours.
