·       Doug Ducey’s Statement:  In tomorrow’s Arizona Republic I will say, if I were governor, that I would veto SB 1062.  I wanted you to hear this directly from me so that no one else could misrepresent my views.  Here’s the exact statement I submitted to the Republic.  I wanted you to see it here first: "The religious liberty issues that SB 1062 attempts to address are legitimate ones, and I believe there is a way to draft language that would address the concerns of everyone involved and avoid the acrimony and notoriety that have accompanied this bill's passage. As governor I would veto SB 1062, but would then bring together all the interested parties before this legislative session adjourns to forge consensus on acceptable language protecting religious liberty.  I believe everyone involved are all people of good will, and I believe we can find common ground that will serve Arizona well."

·       Congressman Paul Gosar: On Thursday, I announced my co-sponsorship of the Save American Workers Act, which would repeal ObamaCare’s new definition of full time employment as 30-hours and restore the traditional 40-hour definition.The botched rollout of ObamaCare made clear this law is broken and needs to be repealed and replaced. ObamaCare reduces full-time employment hours, raises taxes, interferes with the fundamental doctor-patient relationship, causes premiums to skyrocket and eliminates health insurance plans that millions of Americans were promised they could keep.

Thanks to ObamaCare redefining the traditional work week as 30 hours, millions of Americans are losing income upon which they desperately depend. Single mothers, recent college graduates and low-income families are forced to pick up second jobs just to make ends meet. Ironically, changing the definition of full-time employment to 30-hours is forcing people to work more, not less, because they need multiple jobs. There was a time when our country fought to limit work to 40 hours per week, now we’re fighting just to get 40 hours of work. This legislation is simple; all it does is change the definition of a full-time work week back to 40 hours. Consequently, it allows hardworking Americans to keep more disposable income in their pockets and prevents them from being forced to take on another job just to make the equivalent amount that they made under a 40-hour work week.

·        GOP Dominates State Governments: Despite the fact that there's a Democrat in the White House, the majority of Americans have actually chosen to be governed by Republicans. According to Patrick Gleason writing at Forbes, "In 2014, Republicans have the governorship and entire control of the state legislature in 24 states, whereas Democrats have total control of only 13 states. Over 157 million Americans, more than half of the U.S. population, live in places where Republicans run all of state government, whereas just under 82 million people live in Democrat-controlled blue states."
