To coin a phrase: This is obviously some new usage of the word "responsibility" I wasn't previously aware of

Orrin Hatch: The 'Poor' Should Do More To Shrink Debt, Not The Rich

"I hear how they're so caring for the poor and so forth," Hatch said in remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday, in reference to Democrats. "The poor need jobs! And they also need to share some of the responsibility."

Responsibility, Senator? A variation on the word Responsible. The word Responsible:
answerable or accountable, as for something within one's power, control, or management (often followed by to or for ): He is responsible to the president for his decisions.


chargeable with being the author, cause, or occasion of something (usually followed by for ): Termites were responsible for the damage.

Who's responsible for the high deficit, Senator? Who added five trillion to our national debt?

Don't talk to me about responsibility, Senator. In fact don't talk about it at all, to anyone. It doesn't become you to use words you so clearly know nothing about.
