CONGRESSIONAL STATEMENTS

300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit,it will be edited.

Senator John McCain released the following statement of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigation that found the Obama Administration is violating the rule of law in its implementation of Obamacare:  “Today, a nonpartisan government watchdog found that the Obama Administration is once again implementing Obamacare in clear violation of the rule of law. After a month-long investigation, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) determined that HHS has ignored the President’s own signature law by diverting billions to insurance companies at the expense of the American taxpayer, and ‘lacks [the] authority’ to do so. Since the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA) was so poorly constructed at the onset, it is no wonder the Obama Administration is pulling out all the stops, including implementing aspects of the ACA unlawfully, as a last ditch effort to keep it afloat. But as today’s GAO report found, the American people, in this case taxpayers, are the ones suffering the consequences, which is why we must replace Obamacare with common sense policy solutions.”

The Senate Has Passed Two Measures Sponsored By US Senator John McCain that would protect the illegal trafficking of Native American artifacts and complete construction of the Miner Flat Dam for the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The first measure, titled the Protection of the Rights of Tribes to stop the Export of Cultural and Traditional (PROTECT) Patrimony Resolution expresses Congress' condemnation of the theft, illegal possession or sale, transfer, and export of Native American cultural items. The resolution also calls on the Administration to implement several measures to identify and stop the illegal trafficking of tribal cultural patrimony, and secure repatriation of exported items to the rightful Native American owners. McCain is also a cosponsor of the Safeguard Tribal Objects of Patrimony Act (STOP Act), which would increase federal penalties for exporting sensitive tribal cultural items. The second bill that passed the Senate would amend the White Mountain Apache Tribe Water Rights Quantification Act of 2010, which is critical to enable the tribe and the U.S. Department of Interior to move forward with the construction of Miner Flat Dam on the North Fork of the White River on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.

CANDIDATE COMMENTARY

300 word limit policy. If statements exceeds the limit, it will be edited.

Congressional candidate Paul Babeu: Recently I debated Taxin’ Tom O’Halleran and what transpired kept me up all night. I can’t imagine letting the people of my district be misled and used as a piggy bank by a Congressman who doesn’t really represent them. That’s why I fought back... Taxin’ Tom O'Halleran and I debated on KAET's Horizon program. For 25 minutes I exposed O'Halleran's dismal fiscal record which includes a 64 percent increase in state spending while he was in the Legislature. His spending increases forced Arizona to sell its Capitol buildings just to finance his spending spree. My record is clear -- fiscal restraint during my nearly eight years as Pinal County Sheriff. And my vision for the future is straightforward. We must protect coal jobs, replace Obamacare, secure our border, and reduce regulations. Taxin Tom O'Halleran offered what you would expect by the progressive status quo....more of the same ideas that have failed time and time again. I’m confident my policies work FOR Arizona, not against it. My debate victory speaks for itself. /www.sheriffpaul.com/donate-debate

Arizona Corporation Commission candidate Andy Tobin: The Commission adopted my proposal that explores using savings from solar net metering changes to lower Arizonans’ electric bills, increase critical infrastructure investments, and grow energy efficiency and energy storage programs that will help save Arizonans money during the most expensive part of the day.  Read my amendment that will study energy efficiency and energy storage investments.
