To all LD6 (Eastern Counties) Taxpayers & Health Care Freedom Fighters:

Please contact Rep. Brenda Barton, Sen. Chester Crandell and Rep. Bob Thorpe and thank them for voting against Governor Jan Brewer’s ObamaCare Medicaid expansion in the recent special session of the Arizona Legislature.  (Contact info below.)

Barton, Crandell and Thorpe did the right thing, in the face of heavy lobbying by hospital corporations greedy for federal tax money, a media barrage by medical socialists peddling false humanitarian arguments, and a heavy-handed Governor who suspended public debate and  transparency in order to steamroll expansion opponents.  Watch this video to understand the depth of the betrayal and the lack of transparency involved in the Governor’s actions.  And go to our Hall of Shame to see the names of  the GOP Legislators who defected to help the Governor and legislative Democrats pass the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion.

It’s important to thank our Legislators for taking heroic actions.  Your email notes and voice mails can be as simple as, “Dear Rep. Barton  / Sen. Crandell / Rep. Thorpe, Thank you for voting against the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion and for defending Arizona’s constitutional taxpayers protections under Prop 108.  Sincerely, Joe & Jane Taxpayer.”   Here is their contact info:

Rep. Brenda Barton   bbarton@azleg.gov  602-926-4129

Sen. Chester Crandell   ccrandell@azleg.gov  602-926-5409

Rep. Bob Thorpe   bthorpe@azleg.gov  602-926-5219


We will send out email alerts soon detailing our plan for the next phase of the battle to block the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion.  But here’s the upshot: Arizona grassroots activists need to collect signatures for a citizen referendum to stop the legislation and put it on the November 2014 ballot.  Learn more about that effort at http://www.urapc.org/
