7-20-13 MCRC Briefs

Maricopa County Republican Briefs
July 20, 2013
·       Harris Questions AZGOP: To Tim (Seifert) - In the Republican Briefs today a correction was published indicating that you said "The Republican Party is NOT supportive of the anti Common Core efforts by me and the anti Medicaid expansion efforts by Christine Bauserman, et al.  Is this correct?  I believe that this is not correct because I personally sat down with Chairman Robert Graham prior to launching the campaign to place HB 2003 on the ballot and he not only agreed with the idea, he supported the idea that both HB 2010, the Medicaid Expansion Petition, and the School Board Expansion should be passed simultaneously   Now which is it?  Are you purporting to speak for the Chairman on this?  Am I to assume from your statement that the State GOP is in favor of Common Core and Medicaid Expansion?   Are you trying to sit on the fence to not be held accountable for the monied interests that are pushing these two horrendous tax increases on the Arizona Taxpayer?  If this is true I have to ask:  In light of this I have to wonder what the Republican Party actually stands for...if anything.  - Wesley W. Harris  602-942-9281,  602-432-2871 (Cell) or
·       Editor’s Note:  This is the correction that Harris refers to -  as posted in the 7-19-13 Briefs. CORRECTION:  Briefs accidently lost the wording “not correct to assert”  for this posting last night. The posting should have read: The 7-17-13 Yellow Sheet Reports That AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham’s right hand man Tim Sifert says that it is "not correct" to assert that the state party or Graham is supportive of the anti-Common Core referendum effort by Wes Harris and the anti-Medicaid expansion URAPC efforts…and emphasized that “the party has steered clear of taking sides on Medicaid expansion.”

·       Tell your Representative:
ü  Do you feel that the "dreamers" should have a pathway to citizenship at any time in the future.  If not, how should Congress resolve that issue?
ü  Do you agree with the plan to allow illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship if they pay fines, back taxes and go to the back of the line?
ü  Do you think illegal immigrants should be allowed to become legal residents (not citizens) with a work visa only, so they pay taxes and can be accounted for.
