Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein: "Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."   Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

Last Month The Top Senate Democrat Leaders Overseeing Richard Carmona’s Campaign for Senate made clear their willingness to allow the country to go over a “fiscal cliff” unless their demands for massive tax hikes were met. But yesterday a new report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) also made clear that as a result of the Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend policies, we are already headed in that direction.  The report shows that the economy would go into a recession and unemployment would increase if the Democrats’ proposed small business tax hike and massive defense cuts are put into effect. “This report is just the latest evidence that the failed economic policies trumpeted by Richard Carmona and President Obama are driving our country over a fiscal cliff,” Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert said today. “Under the Obama economy, we’ve now had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8 percent, a skyrocketing debt hitting $16 trillion, and four straight years of trillion dollar deficits.  This report is yet another big wake-up call that Arizona simply can’t afford Carmona and Obama’s failed economic policies,” Sifert concluded.

Governor Jan Brewer Today Issued A Declaration Of Emergency in response to monsoon-related flooding in the Gladiator Fire burn area in Yavapai County. The Gladiator Fire began in the Prescott National Forest on May 13, 2012, and burned tens of thousands of acres.Following that fire, a series of monsoon storms hit the area July 13-14 and caused significant flooding and debris flow in the Lincoln Ridge and Peck Canyon watersheds. Portions of Crown King Road – the only viable road to and from the town of Crown King – were also damaged. Significant construction is necessary to repair the road and mitigate future flooding damage.
  The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors has already declared a State of Emergency and requested the State’s financial assistance in order to repair Crown King Road and reimburse the county for its emergency-response expenses. Road repairs are expected to total nearly $85,000, according to preliminary damage assessment estimates.
