Single-Shot Shawnna Bolick in LD-28!

Here is a copy of the autodialer that is running in LD-28 asking voters to single-shot Shawnna Bolick in the Republican Primary. All the other candidates are Obamacare Medicaid expansion supporters and have been endorsed by Governor Brewer to support her work bringing Obamacare to Arizona.

Here is a copy of the message delivered by Dan Brophy, brother of Kate Brophy-McGee:

Don’t Be Fooled – Heather Carter Voted for Obamacare

These mailers will be delivered to households in legislative district 15 starting on Thursday, July 31st. As you can see, the target is Republican Heather Carter. Carter took a lead role on the expansion of Obamacare in Arizona during the special kangaroo session that occurred in May, 2013. Depending on who you source, the cost to Arizonans will be hundreds of millions of dollars if not several billions of dollars in the long run. You can thank Heather Carter for embracing this provision of the Affordable Care Act (Title II, Section 2001, Page 392).

VIDEO FLASHBACK: The Kangaroo Special Session That Brought Obamacare to Arizona

On June 12, 2013, Governor Brewer and her carriers in the Arizona House initiated a kangaroo special session in the Arizona House that welcomed in the Obamacare Medicaid expansion in accordance with Section 2001 of the Affordable Care Act.

This was nothing more than a corporate giveaway to the healthcare industrial complex in Arizona.

Watch this video from June 12, 2013 as brave conservative legislators attempt to debate the Obamacare Republicans on the floor of the House. As you can see, a travesty of the legislative process took place as the Obamacare Republicans refused to yield to ANY questions.

It’s now 2014 and the Primary Elections are approaching. Let’s make sure that the voters are reminded of what happened during that infamous special session one year ago.

A Vote for Medicaid Expansion WAS A Vote For Obamacare

The Obamacare Republicans and their apologists are claiming that when they voted for the Medicaid restoration expansion, they were not voting for Obamacare, but the fact remains that they did indeed vote for the Affordable Care Act’s Section 2001 which can be found on page 392.

Here’s all the visual and physical evidence you need complete with links directly to the federal government’s Health and Human Services website:

Adding to the Target List

One name that did not appear on our earlier list of 2014 legislative targets was Senator John McComish. McComish has decided he will not be running for re-election to the Arizona Legislature in 2014 – which explains Jeff Dial’s intention to seek that seat. Instead, McComish is rumored to be seeking a Justice of the Peace position in Kyrene Precinct. (This is a common practice by lawmakers who do this in order to get paid more while increasing their state retirement pension.)

Senator McComish thought he had a “free ride” into this JP seat. Not so fast.

Enter Darryl Jacobson-Barnes, a conservative candidate who HAS officially announced for the Justice of the Peace seat. Given Darryl’s conservative activism supporting economic freedom, we believe she will make a much better candidate for this office.

Add another conservative to support to the list!

Arizona Republic Columnist Laurie Roberts on Betsey Bayless Raise

We applaud Laurie Roberts for revealing the details on Bayless’ machinations that brings her salary up to $500,000 a year!
