GOP sweep has Arizona on the right track

More than half of the states in the U.S. — 28 out of 50 — are now challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare in federal court, joining Florida’s lawsuit questioning the the massive governmental overreach Barack Obama signed last March. He said it was done “On behalf of my mother.”

Arizona is part of the Florida lawsuit along with Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming and Virginia.

Virginia has filed its own lawsuit, making it the 28th state challenging the health-care law in federal court

Yesterday at the Arizona Republican Party Statutory Meeting, newly elected Attorney General Tom Horne brought the assemblage of elected state committeeman to their feet in a cheering, standing ovation as he declared “In contrast to my predecessor, I have joined in the lawsuit declaring ObamaCare [the government mandated health care plan] unconstitutional.”

Gov. Brewer initially joined the suit last May. But Democrat Attorney General Terry Goddard, refused to join in the suit. Horne, a Republican, was elected in November to succeed Goddard.

On behalf of the state of Arizona, Horne has also has joined in the lawsuit in support of SB 1070 — unlike his predecessor.

Additionally, and in contrast to his predecessor, the former Superintended of Public Instruction — now Arizona’s Attorney General — is fighting Tucson Unified School District’s controversial ethnic studies program, which he stated divides our students by race and teaches them from Marxist textbooks.

Horne remarked that he was attacked in a recent New York Times editorial for his stance, adding that the Communist Daily Worker beat the NYT by four years.

That should answer any questions about the positions held by the renowned Gray Lady.

    What do you mean 28 out of 50 states is more than half? President Obama, the smartest man in the world, says he’s already been to 57.

    AG Tom Horne really did move the crowd yesterday. Those who were reluctant to support him because he had once been a Democrat, as Ronald Reagan had previously been, heard his message loud and clear yesterday. Horne is on the right side of the issues. He has taken immense amounts of flack from the left, but hasn’t been dissuaded. This is one bright guy who has seen the light, as Reagan did, and will make us proud. Thank God his liberal opponent Democrat Felecia Rotellini highlighted the extreme contrast between them. I’m also grateful she had RINO Grant Woods working on her team. He’s the political kiss of death.

    With Republicans holding every state office, now is the time to get rolling on the issues that matter. We are in an enviable position, but none of the elected leaders should forget how they got there. It was through the hard work of the party activists including the newly energized tea party members.
