·        Statement From Senate President Andy Biggs And House Speaker Andy Tobin On The Governor’s Call For A Special Session (last night): “This evening, Governor Brewer summoned legislators to convene a special session to address the FY14 budget and Medicaid expansion. The special session was called without any consultation with Senate or House leadership, and was designed to commence at the precise moment it was conveyed. We are disappointed and stunned that the Governor and her staff would resort to such an unnecessary, impulsive and unprecedented tactic. Since the beginning of the session, Senate and House leadership have made the budgetary process a top priority. Additionally, the debate regarding the full implementation of Obamacare in Arizona was already fully under way. In fact, these two specific items have not only consistently been a top legislative focus, but the other essential bills of the legislature have also been moving through our respective chambers. Instead of allowing the process to proceed in an orderly manner, the Governor made the impetuous decision to intercede and collude with the democrat minority in order to force an expedited vote on her sole legislative priority of Obamacare. We are frustrated and bewildered by her overt hostility and disregard for the budgetary process which was already well under way. The blatant disrespect and reckless practices exhibited by this Executive are less than what was expected of her and more than should be tolerated.” Contacts: Mike Philipsen, Communications Advisor -  AZ Senate Republican Caucus Office (602) 926-3972Cell (602) 904-2070   or Rey Torres, Director of Communications AZ House of Representatives Republican Caucus Office (602) 926-3233

·        From The Gov’s Office: AHCCCS Is Not The Affordable Care Act. It is not ObamaCare. It is the nation’s gold standard in terms of cost-effective Medicaid programs. It also is the subject of a voter mandate, thanks to Arizona’s approval of two ballot measures … most recently Proposition 204 in 2000.Governor Brewer often says Medicaid is just a sliver of the larger Affordable Care Act. - Matthew Benson Director of Communications, Office of Arizona Governor Janice K.

·        Anti-Amnesty: This would be a repeat of 1986 when President Reagan trusted the Democrats who promised that if amnesty were granted to 3 million illegal aliens now, the Congress would secure the border.  President Reagan believed them and granted amnesty.  The Democrats promptly dropped that secure the borders plan. According to the 14th and 15th amendments, people in this country are either citizens or they aren't; there is no other status.  If "legal status" is given to the nearly 20 million illegals in America, the Democrats will immediately appeal to the Supreme court for citizenship for those 20 million illegals based on those amendments, and they'll win. Different people, different President, slightly different language, same intent.  Leave the borders open, make illegals citizens, and America goes bankrupt. – Ray Spitzer,  author and former LD9 Chairman
