Orin did a good job for his party during the
Watergate hearings unlike other members
of his party. Hatch is able man and if his
party wasn't a complete batch of fools he'd
would be at its head.

Hatch had a COI when he wrote the law. He still does.

[edit] Lobbying ties
Hatch's son Scott is a named partner and registered lobbyist at
Walker, Martin & Hatch LLC, a Washington lobbying firm. The firm was
formed in 2001; the other two partners are Jack Martin, a staff aide
to Senator Hatch for six years, and H. Laird Walker, who has been
described as a close associate of the senator's. [6] In March 2003,
the Los Angeles Times quoted Senator Hatch as saying that the firm was
formed with his "personal encouragement" and that he saw no conflict
of interest in championing issues that helped his son's clients. [7]

Hatch has legislated for dietary supplements to be governed outside of
the realm of drugs and food additives. Utah, his constituency, is
considered the "Silicon Valley" of the supplement industry. When the
FDA was reviewing the adverse effects of ephedra, Hatch defended the
supplement industry. At the time, Walker, Martin & Hatch LLC were
being paid, by companies with interests in ephedra manufacturing, for
lobbying Congress.[7]

In March 2009, the Washington Times reported that the pharmaceutical
industry, which has "long has benefited from Sen. Orrin G. Hatch's
legislative efforts", had previously undisclosed connections to Hatch.
Five pharmaceutical companies and the industry's main lobbying group,
Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), wrote
checks in 2007 totaling more than $170,000 to the Utah Families
Foundation, a tax-exempt charitable foundation which Hatch helped
start in the 1990s and had vigorously supported since. Walker, Martin
& Hatch LLC was paid $120,000 by PhRMA in 2007 to lobby Congress on
pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration legislation.[6]

problems caused by DSHEA:

Except for his Stupid support for Arnold, mormonism and an host of
other nonsense.

Oh Darling, Orrin isn't the only boy getting his

about some of the deals Kennedy cut that favored
the AMA back several decades ago.
