The Executive Guidance Committee of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (EGC) met last night and passed three resolutions.
Although Gov. Jan Brewer’s policy advisor and chief strategist Chuck Coughlin and her financial guru John Arnold, made valiant attempts to convince the Republican leaders of the rightness of her position to expand the federal Medicaid program, Arizona’s involvement in the ObamaCare scheme was dead on arrival. Out of thirty possible votes, only two supported this debacle: Scott O’Connor, Chair of Legislative District 28 and Paul Whetten, Chair of LD 25.
State Rep. Carl Seel (Dist. 20) using facts and logic, effectively decimated the assertions by Chuck Coughlin and John Arnold, Brewer’s Director of the Governor‘s Office of Strategic Planning and Budgeting.
A second resolution opposing the McFlake Comprehensive Immigration Reform efforts to legalize upward of 25 million illegals, was passed unanimously by the Maricopa County EGC members.
A third resolution opposing the implementation of Common Core — the Obama Education Department’s program to nationalize America’s public schools, passed unanimously. Laddie Shane, Chair of Arizona Conservative Educators, wrote the resolution and made a dynamic presentation for its passage.
