“Governor Brewer’s Team can declare a victory against the Republican Precinct Committeemen and the Principled Conservatives across the entire state of Arizona that stand on the Republican Party Plank: Repeal Obamacare.

·       AZ National Republican Committeeman Bruce Ash: Harry Reid has announced that "the anarchists have taken over the US Congress" referring to Republicans and the Tea Party's influence. The Senate Majority Leader's comments were in reaction to Republican David Vitter's amendment to an energy bill that would require congressional and White House staff to enroll in ObamaCare exchanges just like the rest of America must do. Well, if Congressional Tea Party Republicans are the enemy as Reid is fond of saying what would he say about labor union leaders who are also on the war path with the President and the Democrat congress who passed ObamaCare? If the Affordable Care Act is not fixed and it destroys the health and welfare funds... then I believe it needs to be repealed, said Terence  O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers International Union of North America. We want it to be fixed, fixed, fixed.  Union leaders see ObamaCare killing their member's jobs. Perhaps unions and Republicans might use ObamaCare as a common issue to join together in the upcoming year. Republicans and the labor movement --what a great coalition for actually changing or repealing ObamaCare. Coalitions are a good thing and if Republicans  think tactically  ObamaCare might just be an issue we can work together on. Yes?? Maybe there is anarchy in the air but what  a unique alliance to fix ObamaCare
