"HATCH--> I've long said that eliminating the legislative filibuster would be a mistake. It's what's prevented our country for decades from sliding toward liberalism. It's inconvenient sometimes, but requiring compromise is in the interest of both parties in the long term.

Hatch in 2017: "without the filibuster this country would've been gone a long time ago.

Hatch in 2016: "I'm one of the biggest advocates for the filibuster. It's the only way to protect the minority, and we've been in the minority a lot more than we've been in the majority. It's just a great, great protection for the minority.

1978-- Hatch leads successful filibuster of liberal labor reforms that would have "taken the country straight to socialism."
