Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, addressed his "poorly worded joke about Obamacare supporters" on Twitter Friday, lamenting the comments he made during a speech the day before where he called them the "stupidest, dumbass people I've ever met."

In a speech to the American Enterprise Institute in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Hatch made the derogatory comments about Obamacare supporters.

"That was the stupidest, dumbass bill that I've ever seen," the retiring Utah senator declared about the Affordable Care Act.

"Now some of you may have loved it. If you do, you are one of the stupidest, dumbass people I've ever met," Hatch continued. "And there are a lot of them up on Capitol Hill from time to time."

He also noted that one of the "great ironies" of the nation's healthcare law was that it had "lower-income families paying most of the freight."
