Hall of Shame: 14 AZ GOP legislators who voted for the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion

June 20, 2013 J,

The 14 GOP state legislators listed below not only voted to enact the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion in Arizona, but also voted to violate Prop 108, the most important taxpayer protection in the Arizona Constitution.  In order to get around Prop 108′s requirement for legislative supermajorities to pass tax increases, these legislators voted to give unprecedented taxing power to an unelected bureaucrat, the head of the Arizona Medicaid (AHCCCS) program.

Please watch this video to get a better sense of the level of betrayal and the lack of transparency involved in the actions of these 14 legislators in participating in Gov. Brewer’s special session maneuver.
