Republican Chairs condemn votes of 6 GOP Senators

McComish, Crandall, Driggs, Pierce, Reagan and Worsley subject of GOP scorn

Former state Senators, Republicans Frank Antenori and Ron Gould are united as foes of Gov. Brewer’s Medicaid expansion. In the event the controversial measure is approved in the legislature, the duo is pushing for a 2014 ballot measure that will send the issue to the voters, in hopes overburdened taxpayers will reject the proposal.  The State of Arizona allows for referendums to reverse legislation not supported by the people.

The Executive Guidance Committee of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (EGC) met last night.  The EGC overwhelmingly reasserted its opposition to this massive governmental expansion by a voice vote — with only a single dissenting vote out of 28 cast. Further, the resolution condemned the six Republican senators who voted in collusion with the unified senate Democrats: Republican Majority Leader John McComish (LD-18) shamefully jumped ship to join them. Other collaborators voting with the Dems are Rich Crandall (LD-16), Adam Driggs (LD-28), Steve Pierce (LD-1), Michele Reagan (LD-23) and Bob Worsley (LD-25).

Medicaid expansion has been the subject of previous EGC meetings, and has not fared well with Republican party leadership. 

Christine Bauserman, Chair of United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives and Frank Antenori spoke at last night’s meeting.  Bauserman is putting together an effort to gather the necessary 120,000 signatures needed to qualify this critical issue for the ballot. Time is short. Signatures must be collected within 90 days of the end of the session. Make a commitment to join this major endeavor. There will be no second chances.

    This would be a moot point if our U.S. House of Representatives would DO THEIR JOBS & REPEAL THIS SOCIALIST DISASTER…

    • Observer says:

      That’s indisputable truth, Doc. But since they’re not, we need to do what we can. This enormous undertaking is up against a Phoenix summer and depending on volunteers. Those are mammoth obstacles, but we have no other path open to us.

      If all PCs commit to getting at least a couple of sheets filled, it can happen.

      • Doc says:

        Uuuhhh…pardon me, Observer. I’m apparadently behind th’ curve. What sheets? I’m a PC, & if there’s sumthin’ I need to be doin’ Please clue me in. Thanks!

    Why don’t the links transfer when I try to forward the message, or when I copy and paste it in a new email? Bernard

    Good that these traitors were censured by the EGC. Next stop should be on election day!

    Nationally, 37% approve of Obamacare and 49% think it’s a bad idea. Duh!

    “Health care law’s unpopularity reaches new highs”

    “By Mark Murray, Senior Political Editor, NBC News”

    “President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law remains unpopular with the American public just months before it fully goes into effect, according to the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.”

    “The poll shows 49 percent of Americans say they believe the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea. That’s the highest number recorded on this question since the poll began measuring it in 2009. Just 37 percent say the plan is a good idea.”

  5. Observer says:

    I should have said petitions. 120,000 signatures are needed on petitions in order to qualify for the ballot.
