· The CATO Report On American’s Governors Gives Arizona Gov Jan Brewer ‘C’ grade: “Governor Brewer has a generally good record on taxes. While she helped to push through a temporary sales tax rate increase in 2010, she supported the later expiration of that hike. In 2011 she signed into law a cut to the corporate income tax rate of 2.1 percentage points. In 2012 she approved a 25 percent cut to the capital gains tax rate. In 2013 she vetoed an increase in personal income taxes. However, Brewer has supported increased taxes on hospitals and she has vetoed some beneficial tax cuts, including bills to index the income tax for inflation and expand business capital expensing. Brewer has not been very frugal on spending. She has proposed general fund budget increases averaging 5.2 percent over the past three years. She also supports Medicaid expansion under the ACA, and has been battling members of her own party through the courts regarding the legality of implementing the change.37. It also notes an article by Sarah Ferris, “Arizona’s Highest Court Will Decide Jan Brewer’s Medicaid Expansion,” Washington Post, August 29, 2014.
