“Moderate” Martha McSally votes to yank health care from millions

Martha McSally stood up in GOP conference meeting and said let's get this "fucking thing" done. Yes, direct quote — per members and aides. — Erica Werner (@ericawerner) May 4, 2017 About ending protections from lifelong coverage caps on children born with illnesses, making being a rape or domestic violence victim a preexisting condition, etc. […]

Call your Rep and Senators Flake and McCain, now!

I’m old enough to remember the outraged protests from the right against the Affordable Care Act as it made its way through Congress to President Obama in 2009-10. It was being shoved down our throats, we were told. No one voting on the bill had really read it, supposedly. Tyranny! A number of House members […]

Republicans have their tweeting assignments for the SOTU

RNC "draft tweets" on Obamacare distributed to members pic.twitter.com/kiMd2QpIZF — Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) February 28, 2017 The text of the draft is small so here’s what Republicans should be tweeting in Arizona, just fyi.

I’ve lived in Arizona Legislative District 28 since […]

I was truly expecting the Arizona Republic to do their usual thing on a Presidential endorsement, where they […]

Don’t mistake McCain getting revenge for moderation of the AZ GOP

Politico reported that Sen. John McCain is purging the Arizona Republican Party of his ardent detractors. Nearly a year ago, tea party agitators in Arizona managed to get John McCain censured by his own state party. Now, he’s getting his revenge. As the longtime Republican senator lays the groundwork for a likely 2016 reelection bid, […]

Why are conservatives unwilling to admit that pulling “The Interview” was a business decision?

Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, along with Rep. Paul Gosar have joined the conservative hand-wringing over Sony’s decision to pull the release of “The Interview”. That move came after U.S. intelligence linked the North Korean government to hackers who made violent threats about the comedy film. In the movie, a TV crew travels […]
