·        Letter to Rep. Dial,  Rep. Robson and Senator McComish: I just cannot understand, with all of the evidence you have been given, why you continue to support Common Core and it's implementation in our state. When are you going to listen to your constituents and not the Chamber of Commerce?? I hope by now you realize our district, except for a few people, oppose Common Core! I appreciate the good bills you have supported, and I have thanked you for those. However, why won't you support my children now and the districts children and exit Common Core?? You have been given ample evidence Common Core is tied to the UN through funding from Bill and Melinda Gates, UNESCO and now Bill and Melinda Gates announced they will provide funding for PARCC (see attached document)? Will you listen to your constituents that elected you??  I'm pleading with you to listen to us!! -Jennifer Reynolds, PC LD18    http://www.arizonansagainstcommoncore.com/UN_connection.html
·        HB2425 Bill Passed In The House- 41 Ayes And 17 Nays and 2 members not voting. leg/1r/bills/hb2425
·        Good morning Legislators: Before you even consider Govern Brewer's request that you all fall in line and implement her expansion of Medicaid (AHCCCS) to 138% of the so called Federal Poverty Level I urge you to watch Congressman Matt Salmon's video attached herewith.  He understands the dangers of this move to accept the 'bribe' from Obama...I hope you do and that you vote NO on this expansion.  Remember when Obama Care was being pushed by the President?  He surrounded himself with people dressed like doctors and nurses.  Governor Brewer did the same thing so what does that tell you about her?  She is a poor excuse for a Republican.  
Your fellow Republicans, the P.C.s that carried your water in the last election, have voted overwhelmingly against both this expansion and the adoption of PARCC and Common Core.  If you want any help in the next election from us, I suggest that you kill these two provisions this week.  The Governor is only one...you are many and you, not she, are in charge of the purse strings.  Remember please the Checks and Balances that our fore fathers established.  It is time for you to 'check' the system.   - Wes Harris:  We the People AZ 602-432-2871 (C); wwharris@msn.com or wwharris40@gmail.com
