SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's Senate delegation says it is not happy with the health care reform proposal being made by Democrats--and that it will do all it can to defeat it.

Sens. Bob Bennett and Orrin Hatch both say the bill costs too much and does not do enough for Americans.

Hatch attacked the bill on numerous national media programs. Speaking to Fox News, Hatch said he hoped the bill would make the American people "rebel."

He said the bill will result in billions of dollars in tax hikes.

For their part, the Democrats have called Hatch's statements "false propaganda."

The Senate is set to vote on the proposal Saturday night.
