·       Resolution Of The Arizona Legislative District 2 Republican Committee In Opposition To Senators John McCain And Jeff Flake’s Refusal To Vote To Defund Obamacare

Preface: Now that the disastrous consequences of Obamacare are being fully exposed and still more daily, it is time for our Arizona Republican Senators McCain and Flake to vote to defund Obamacare. Our Senators cannot place themselves above the law with Obamacare exemptions continuing to fund their healthcare at 75%. Multiple defunding bills reached the Senate in the past and were quickly dispatched by Harry Reid without Senators being required to vote or go on record. Conservative grassroots activism forced the House to force Senators to show their true faces to the citizens who elected them. By voting to force defunding at a 60 vote threshold in the Senate, we gain leverage to hold the debt ceiling at current limits. We understand that a vote for cloture is a vote to fund Obamacare.

Whereas: The Passage of a Continuing Resolution that defunds Obamacare in its entirety is a great victory for fiscal conservatives. The grassroots momentum must continue with the support of our Senator employees.

Whereas: President Obama has granted waivers for Members of Congress and Corporations allowing them to be excluded from said act. Aside from Democrats and Independents there are even unions, who are usually his most strident supporters, speaking up in protest of this law and say it will shatter the 40 hour work week.

Meanwhile, he refuses to delay the individual mandate that will impose huge costs on families across the country. It is no wonder the latest polling data confirms that Obamacare is more unpopular than ever with nine out of ten Americans opposing it.

Whereas: Both Arizona Senators refuse to pledge the following: “I, ___________, pledge to the taxpayers of the state of ___________, and to the American people, that I will: ONE, support the full repeal of Obamacare (also known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act); and TWO, oppose any bill or budget resolution that provides funding to implement or enforce any part of it.”

Therefore, it is Resolved: We, the Executive Committee of Legislative District 2 unanimously affirm and declare our opposition to Senators McCain and Flake’s refusal to vote to defund Obamacare. We urge and demand that our Republican Senators stand with Arizona, vote to defund Obamacare and put away their political pride. Funding must be withdrawn immediately. We will accept nothing less.

Resolved and passed by unanimous vote of LD2 Precinct Committeeman at the Sept 21, 2013 General Meeting

Chairman: Sergio Arellano
Treasurer: Eric Jiran
Secretary: Angie Anderson

·       Health-Care-Heroes-Rake-It-In   Friday’s fundraiser for the GOP lawmakers who supported Medicaid expansion raked in at least $325,000 and is expected to hit the $350,000 mark once all the checks are counted, according to sources familiar with the event.

 

·       U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) And Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) today released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s diplomatic initiative with Iran: “We support the willingness of the Obama Administration to test the credibility of the Iranian regime’s diplomatic overtures. However, we are deeply skeptical about the real motivations behind Iran's charm offensive. We need to approach the current diplomatic initiative with eyes wide open, and we must not allow Iran to use negotiations as a tool of delay and deception. A real negotiation does not mean that the diplomats talk while the Iranians enrich.

“When Secretary Kerry sits down with the Iranian Foreign Minister, we urge him to make clear that the U.S. government, the American people, and the U.S. Congress will never allow the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism to acquire the world’s most dangerous weapon. Kind words are not enough. We must see transparent, tangible, and verifiable steps by the Iranian regime to fulfill its international obligations and end its pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability. The American people and Congress will not support anything less.

“We also urge Secretary Kerry to make clear to the Iranian Foreign Minister that, while Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability is our top concern, it is not our only concern. We are also opposed to the Iranian regime’s efforts to destabilize the Middle East – including its support for terrorist organizations and attacks across the region that have killed Americans; its commitment to the destruction of Israel; its attempts to assassinate Israeli and Arab officials; its oppression of the Iranian people; its threat to friendly Arab governments; its development of increasingly capable ballistic missiles; and its unwavering military assistance to the Assad regime, which has slaughtered more than 110,000 men, women, and children.”
