·       Gila County Republican Committee Passed Resolution to Censure Gov. Jan Brewer and 14 State Legislators on Nov 16



WHEREAS, Governor Jan Brewer conspired with 14 liberal Republican state legislators to form an alliance with the Democrat minorities in the Senate and House for the express purpose of thwarting the will of the .Republican majorities and violating the Arizona Constitution, the Republican Party Principles and the Republican Party Platform, including but not limited to the following:

•    They implemented the passage of Medicaid expansion - a key part of the disastrous healthcare plan known as ObamaCare.

•    They implemented government mandated national healthcare.
•    They approved taxpayer funding for abortions and increased funding for abortion services.

•    They expanded eligibility for welfare benefits, and invited 300,000+ new people into the welfare system.

•    They raised taxes.

•    They voted against tax relief and kept Arizona as the state with the second highest tax rate in the nation.

•    They voted against auditing the Arizona hospital bed tax.

•    They increased property taxes.

•    The only tax relief they offered was for special-interest industries who could afford to hire lobbyists.

•    They rejected a balanced budget and voted for one with a structural debt of $400 million.

•    They removed government oversight for special interests.

•    They voted against verifying citizenship as a requirement for Medicaid benefits.
•    They removed funding for English immersion for non-English-speaking students, thus ensuring the continuation of the failed, Democrat supported bilingual programs.

WHEREAS, they corrupted the legislative process by suspending the Senate and House rules and depriving the public of the opportunity to scrutinize and comment on their proposed legislation.

WHEREAS, they stymied the legislative process, dishonored American legislative traditions, stifled the fundamental precepts of fairness and openness, and violated decorum by refusing to debate.

WHEREAS, they violated the wishes of the vast majority of Republican precinct committeemen  in the state of Arizona who had overwhelmingly opposed the passage of Medicaid expansion, making their wishes known publicly in formal written resolutions.

WHEREAS, they voted in favor of national health care, disregarding the will of the voters of Arizona who amended the Arizona Constitution via Proposition l06 in 2010 to oppose national health care.

WHEREAS, they violated the separation of powers defined in the Arizona Constitution by voting for a budget amendment originated by the Executive branch of government.

WHEREAS, they violated the Arizona Constitution by surrendering the legislative authority to tax to an unelected bureaucrat in an Executive branch agency, and made such taxes subject to approval by the federal government.

WHEREAS, they forced passage of a tax increase by a simple majority vote, disregarding the will of the voters of Arizona who amended the Arizona Constitution via Proposition 108 in 1992 requiring 2/3 of the legislature to approve any measure that results in a tax increase.

WHEREAS, they were rewarded for their votes with hundreds of thousands of dollars in political campaign contributions from the Arizona Chambers of  Commerce, the healthcare industrial complex, lobbyists and special interest groups.
