·       Obama-McCain-To-Huddle-On-Immigration-Strategy


·       Senators McCain And Flake Break Their Promise To Arizona Voters - Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod on the U.S. Senate’s Passage of ENDA:   “It is deeply disappointing and shocking to see Senator John McCain and Senator Jeff Flake break their promise to Arizona voters to oppose the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).  ENDA is a false bill of goods: while it claims to end discrimination, this bill in fact fosters discrimination against business owners and employers with sincerely held religious beliefs. The adopted Portman Amendment did nothing to address this core concern. Yet, just as troubling as the fact that the bill passed, is that both of Arizona’s Senators voted for this bill, despite having told Arizona voters when running for office that they would oppose this legislation in their surveys:Senator John McCain’s 2010 survey (See question 10) and Senator Jeff Flake’s 2012 survey (See question 8 and note on page 2)  ENDA compromises our first freedom – to practice our faith, free from government interference. This legislation creates an environment where government mandates compel business owners and employers to choose between their faith and their chosen profession.”  Contact: Aaron Baer, 330-219-1792
