Sen. Orrin Hatch apologizes for Wall Street bailout vote

Sen. Orrin Hatch from Utah participated on a balanced budget panel yesterday at CPAC, but was immediately questioned by a member of the audience about his 2008 vote for the Wall Street bailout.  

“Under the circumstances at that time, we were going down,” Hatch said. “Let me tell you, we were going down. The secretary of the treasury said this is what had to be done.”

Hatch said the final bill had a lot of changes that he didn't like but that he felt it was the right thing to do at the time.

“Not a lot of people are willing to say they’re sorry,” Hatch said. “But I will.”
