Think About It:  According to the left wing zealots we have in politics we're not supposed to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few "crazies," but the acts of a few American “crazies” is enough to judge all Americans who own guns. – author unknown

·        RNC Statement On Changes To Rules Of The Republican Party: LOS ANGELES, CA—RNC Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding rules of the Republican Party as voted on at the RNC Spring Meeting in Los Angeles, CA:
"During the general session at the RNC Spring Meeting, the membership overwhelmingly voted to empower the state parties and grassroots in the selection of delegates,” said Chairman Reince Priebus. “We all agree the grassroots are the center of this party and are vital to winning elections. This change makes clear that the grassroots will pick their delegates and that presidential candidates can neither veto delegates nor unseat delegates. This was a win for both delegates and candidates by unifying our party behind this delegate allocation process.”
Rule 16 as passed at convention resolved a perceived problem recognized by many in the 2012 primary process that candidates may have won a statewide vote in which delegates were bound to a specific candidate and then had to come back and win the delegates at another contest which sometimes didn’t reflect the results of statewide presidential preference elections.
Today's amendment clarifies that bound delegates must vote in accordance with state party rules and state law – in other words, delegates cannot claim to support one candidate when elected at the state level and then change their loyalty to someone else later. This rule also ensures that the delegate could not be removed for failing to vote as bound and made clear a presidential candidate cannot veto delegates.
Another proposed amendment to Rule 16 did not pass, which would have reinstated the practice of so-called "beauty contests" in which states hold non-binding primaries, conventions, or caucuses where there is a presidential preference vote.

I continued this Congress to push for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder for his actions and inactions pertaining to the misguided and unlawful Operation Fast and Furious. I will not stop until the American people get the answers they deserve.
     “Outside of Washington, I traveled across one of the largest congressional districts in the country, at over 50,000 square miles, to meet with constituents and hear their ideas on how we can find solutions to the problems that face our country. This included hosting over 10 roundtable discussions and listening sessions. I enjoy traveling throughout the district and meeting with people. Stay tuned to future announcements, as I or my staff may be in your town.  This has just been the first 100 days and I plan to keep going strong.”  Contact: http://gosar.house.gov) on Twitter @repgosar, or through Facebook at Representative Paul Gosar.

·        Governor Jan Brewer Just Vetoed SB 1115, A Health Care Freedom Bill That   Would Have Ensured Price Transparency For Medical Services, according to the Americans for Prosperity- AZ Director Tom Jenney’s newletter.  “Meanwhile, Brewer continues her push to allow unelected bureaucrasts to raise hospital bed taxes in Arizona in order to expand Medicaid under ObamaCare.  Once again, Brewer has proven that she is no friend of free-market reforms in health care,” Jenney wrote  Click HERE to help us fight the Medicaid expansion, or go to http://tinyurl.com/nomedicaidexp  Jenney recommends calling Brewer at (602) 542-4331 and (520) 628-6580 and let her know how disappointed you are or email by going here:  http://azgovernor.gov/Contact.asp
SB 1115, which received bipartisan support in the Legislature, would have mandated that health care providers provide cash prices (imagine that!) to their customers.  By doing so, the reform would have introduced greater price competition to health care in Arizona, and helped to prevent fraud and over-billing. Price transparency is essential to our health care freedom because it would let the market guide consumers toward optimal health care choices.  By putting downward pressure on health care prices, the reform would have helped local businesses that are self-insured or that depend on high-deductible medical insurance plans. This was a great opportunity for Gov. Brewer to demonstrate that she supported free-market reforms in health care -- but she blew it, according to Jenney. Thanks to Senator Nancy Barto for introducing SB 1115, and thanks to all of the Legislators from both parties who voted in favor of the bill.  – Contact Jenney: www.aztaxpayers.org    tjenney@afphq.org    (602) 478-0146

The State Department has acknowledged that five Americans killed in Afghanistan, including 25-year-old diplomat Anne Smedinghoff, were on foot when they were caught in the blast of a suicide bomber, and not in an armored vehicle as officials told bereaved relatives earlier this week.
