·        The Precinct Committeemen Of LD1 (Maricopa County) Unanimously Voted To Oppose Governor Brewer's Proposed Medicaid Expansion, according to Chairman Cathy Schwanke.  LD1’s  Chief concerns: “We will not be able to balance future budgets in AZ if we do the expansion.  Elected officials come and go, but AZ will be left with a broken system that will not remove individuals once the federal government will not pay the bill.  Free money is not free.  The federal strings attached will cause higher costs, increased bureaucracy, and less quality care.  Our Republican Party platform promotes less government, lower taxes, private enterprise solutions, and a path to 'non-dependency' (self-reliance and a chance to move up).  Our hope is to defund Obama’s social healthcare programs, or at least put up a good fight trying.
“How will our neighbors trust us who worked hard for our AZ Republican governor, senators, and representatives that promised to fight Obamacare, but after getting elected, embrace Obama’s program of federal dollars tied to Medicaid expansion?  Republican credibility will be lost and our voters will be disenchanted (but Democrats emboldened).  With legislation pending to craft amnesty to illegal individuals, thus promoting further illegal entry to our country, the full cost of our future healthcare systems in Arizona is beyond what we can afford.  The trigger option after 3 years is unreliable.  We want our Governor to please listen to her base and join other Republican governors that have rejected Medicaid expansion.  Networking with these governors may produce better 'long term' free market solutions while still representing our Republican values.”  See LD1Resolution posted on the MCRC web site at : www.maricopagop.org/

·        Rep. Matt Salmon to Obama: The Time is Now to Release Jonathan Pollard: Today, Salmon (AZ-05) called on President Obama to commute the sentence of Jonathan Pollard to time served. Salmon’s statement: “As President Obama departs for his first official trip to Israel, I call on him to commute the sentence of Jonathan Pollard to time served.  Pollard is now in his 28th year of incarceration and is reported to have failing health.  I have personally met with Pollard and reviewed his case.  With full knowledge and appreciation of his letter of remorse, I wrote to President Obama on previous occasions and penned an op-ed publically calling for Pollard’s release. 
“Interestingly enough, Prime Minister Netanyahu is the only Israeli prime minister who has visited Jonathan Pollard, and, over two years ago publicly wrote a letter to the president of the United States apologizing for Israel’s actions in the matter, committing Israel to not repeat such actions, and requesting his release.  This trip clearly is an opportune time to resolve this issue.  Those who dealt with the ramifications of Pollard’s actions at the time, namely Secretary of State George Schultz, National Security Advisor Bud McFarlane, Assistant Secretary of Defense Lawrence Korb, Chairman of Senate Intelligence David Durenberger and Chairman of House Intelligence Lee Hamilton have all publicly called for Pollard’s release.   The President has had more than enough time to review the case.  This would be a good start to improving our relations in Israel and is the right thing to do.  Mr. President, the time is now to release Jonathan Pollard.” salmon.house.gov
