10-1-13 MCRC Briefs

Maricopa County Republican Briefs

Oct 1, 2013

 

·       POLL:  Arizona Governor Race 2014

 

·       GOP-Civil-War-Moderates-Vs-Conservatives “…McCain, Coburn, Burr, and Corker… all have attacked Senators Cruz and Lee for using the same tactics they used back in 2009. The difference here is that they aren’t the ones leading the fight. Their names aren’t the ones getting the publicity, and they can’t stomach the idea that the conservative wing of the GOP may be moving into a position to take leadership of the Party.”

 

·       Senator-McCain-Please-Stop-Talking

·       Salmon Voluntarily Requests Pay Suspension:  Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) released the following statement regarding his decision to voluntarily request his congressional pay be suspended for the duration of the appropriations lapse.“Washington has reached a new low in gridlock politics. House Republicans acted four times to pass a bill to prevent a government shutdown, and each time it was rejected by Senate Democrats. Even worse, now they are refusing to even come to the table, work together and find a solution to re-open the government. Because this gridlock has unfairly affected thousands of furloughed federal employees, I have voluntarily requested that my congressional pay be suspended for the duration of the appropriations lapse.” See  letter  here.

 

·       Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) Released The Following Statement On The Introduction Of Legislation That Would Fund The Department Of Veterans at Fiscal Year 2013 levels until January1, 2015 or until an appropriation bill is signed into law:  “House Republics rightly acted four times to avoid a government shutdown and protect Americans from the harmful effects of Obamacare. While Harry Reid continues to refuse to come to the table, this bill makes sure our veterans are taken care of while Congress works to hammer out a final bill. Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed much on behalf of their nation.  Unfortunately, while the House and Senate continue to work out their differences to stop the government slow-down, many of our veterans who need education and rehabilitation benefits may not have access to their promised benefits. Much like the recent bill signed into law to continue military pay during a government shutdown, this bill is responsible, simple, non-controversial and deserves immediate consideration. Now it is time to ensure certainty for our nation’s veterans who have already sacrificed so much for our nation. There is no reason why we cannot pass these non-controversial bills right now.” 

This bill funds the Department of Veterans Affairs at FY13 levels through Jan 1, 2015 or until the House and Senate reach an agreement.

 

·       Senator John McCain - statement on the commandant of the Marine Corps firing two generals for security lapses at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, where two Marines were killed in a Taliban attack last year: “The Taliban attack on Camp Bastion on September 14, 2012, which cost the lives of Lt. Col. Chris ‘Otis’ Raible and Sgt. Bradley W. Atwell, was a tragic example of the horror of war and a particular blow to Marines serving at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, where these brave troops were stationed. In this tragedy, however, we also find remarkable examples of courage under fire and steadfastness by our Marines and their British brothers-in-arms. Yesterday, Commandant of the Marine Corps General James Amos decided to hold his subordinate leaders accountable for actions in conjunction with the attack, including the relief of two general officers. General Amos’ decision to maintain accountability, while difficult, will help prevent tragedies like this from occurring again. We owe it to those who lost their lives and their families to learn from this event and do all that is necessary to protect in the future our servicemen and -women serving in forward areas. As for those who lost their lives, particularly, the Marines stationed at Yuma, we will be forever grateful for their sacrifice.”

 

·       CNN Reports: House Republicans Failed To Push Through Three Measures That Would Have Reopened The National Parks, And Funded Veterans Programs And Washington D.C. Government Operations while the federal government is shut down. Each of the measures required a two-thirds majority to pass, meaning that they needed votes from a bloc of Democrats.House leadership aides say they expect to bring the same three measures to a vote on Wednesday in a way that would require only a simple majority to pass. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid earlier dismissed the Republicans' effort. The White House threatened to veto the measures.

Terry, a former border patrol office, was also murdered by illegals allegedly with a gun provided by Eric Holder’s ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. Six months after Bob Krentz’ murder, Sue was run over by a drunk driver, suffering severe injuries to her pelvis, face, and head. “Despite these horrific tragedies, Sue is an example of someone who chooses faith, hope, and love each day, and refuses to choose hatred and bitterness.
