·       AZ Delegation: DO YOU HEAR YOUR PCs? During your campaigns you reached out to us – proclaiming the precinct committeemen were the most important members of the party. Are they avoiding us? Have you forgotten us?  Are we no longer important – until your next election? We are the party of elephants – We won’t forget!!!  What Would the PCs Like To Ask Your AZ Congressman At A Townhall.  Send questions:
·       Questions Received For Our Arizona Delegation:
ü  You "talk" alot about Obamacare but why will you not act?  Our Governor stifled our elected representatives. Our resolutions are ignored.  If you truly oppose Obamacare why will you not act and help the "People's Veto"?
ü  We see Obama, the “Imperial President”  violating the Constitution.  Why isn’t Congress taking action? 
ü  Why does Congress just “mush around” investigating the IRS, the death of our Ambassador, the failure to enforce existing border laws, etc., and nothing gets done? 
ü  Why is this Congress exempting itself from Obamacare when they know how angry that is making their constituents?
ü  Why do they think the government needs to “fix” healthcare?  Healthcare is private enterprise.  People come here from all over the world because their government health care system is failing them and letting them die, seeking help from our system. 
ü  Why are we trying to change that?

·        Are Your GOP U.S. Reps Holding Town Halls?  Now we hear that high paid political strategists are advising their clients --- the members of congress we elected --- against holding town hall meetings with us --- their constituents, many of whom want their voices heard in advance of a House amnesty vote. To address those who are still “looking for an appropriate venue,” haven’t finalized their schedule “yet” or have one planned after the vote, we offer this suggestion:  How about holding “empty chair” town halls?  The name and picture of the U.S. Representative who is too busy to meet with us during the 5-week congressional recess we so generously provide for them, could be affixed to an empty chair.  Questions from the audience would then be read to the MIA member of congress.  Video tape the events and post them to YouTube.
