·       LD10 Censures Gov And 15 State Legislators On Sept 21:

Resolution of the Legislative 10 Precinct Committeemen: For the purpose to Censure Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and 15 Arizona State Legislators

Whereas, 15 Republican State Legislators formed an alliance with Democratic elected officials for the express purpose of thwarting the will of the Republican majority in the legislature and violating Republican Party principles and the Republican Party Platform, including but not limited to the following:

ü  They dramatically increased the size of government by passage of the Medicaid expansion.

ü  They implemented government run healthcare, violating the long held principle of the free market economy.

ü  They approved taxpayer funding for abortion and increased funding for abortion services.

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

ü  They raised taxes.

ü  They voted against tax relief and kept Arizona as the state with the 2nd highest tax rate in the nation.

ü  They voted against auditing the hospital bed tax, violating the principle of government transparency.

ü  They increased property taxes.

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

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

ü  They removed government oversight for special interests, thus ensuring hard earned tax dollars would be misspent.

ü  They voted against verifying citizenship as a requirement for Medicaid benefits, violating the will of the people of Arizona who overwhelmingly voted to require proof of citizenship for eligibility.

Whereas, they corrupted the legislative process by suspending the rules and depriving the public of the opportunity to scrutinize and comment on the proposed legislation;

Whereas, they stymied the legislative process, dishonored American legislative traditions, stifled democratic notions 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 in formal 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 106 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 of the federal government;

Whereas, they forced passage of a tax increase by a mere majority vote instead of the constitutionally required 2/3 vote;

Therefore be it Resolved, that we, the precinct committeemen of Legislative District 10, do hereby censure the following Arizona Governor and State Legislators:

Governor Janice K. Brewer

Representative Doris Goodale

Senator Rich Crandall

Senator Michele Reagan

Representative Doug Coleman

Representative Frank Pratt

Senator Adam Driggs

Senator Robert Worsley

Representative Jeff Dial

Representative Bob Robson

Senator John McComish

Representative Kate Brophy McGee

Representative Thomas “T.J.” Shope

Senator Steve Pierce
