TUCSON Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer won a battle with state lawmakers this week, defying most other conservatives in her party to get a key component of President Obamas Medicaid expansion through the Legislature.
The Arizona Senate voted Thursday to approve the measure 18 to 11. That followed approval earlier this week by the state House of Representatives.
The issue had inflamed passions and divided the Legislature for weeks. Things came to a head Tuesday when Brewer called lawmakers into the Capitol in Phoenix for a surprise special session.

Bob Carol Ted and Alice the regime is using commie tactics to force the promising into submission.
amazing what common sense sounds like when you read it, isn’t it
Everything has gone stark, raving MAD! I know Jan doesn't want to do this, that she is pushed into a corner.
She's not a Cristie.
Maxine Waters knows what's going on and she's excited about it.
seems that have found dirt on her and now are black mailing her because the same Brewer two years ago would have got her middle finger to obama
Many millions of Americans wouldn’t mind a Politburo if they knew what it was and thought it was there to “take care” of them. Millions think Obama care means free medical care for all.
—thank you for that explanation; she is in a unique position as well being a “border” state and does not strike me as the type of person to just ‘go-along’ with OBC...
I guess they found out Brewer is a closet something. Must be
that its mandatory that politicians must have some form of
perversion or another. Could be that during he night of the
Benghazi attack Obama was practicing his.
“Two or three years ago, faced with serious budget deficits,”
“All of the above had nothing to do with Obamacare. A couple hundred thousand poor were dropped for two years from the states Medicaid program despite earlier voter approval for their inclusion.”
Sounds like a perfect setup. This way the tards get
Obamacare and Brewer saves face. Either way she caved to
the commietards and is now one of their pawns just
like Christi. Obamas evil is strong. She’ll sell out
Arpaio next because another liberal foothold has been
established in Arizona.
Both parties suck. Both parties are out for what they can gain for themselves. If it buys a vote, they are for it. They don’t care about the people who work and pay the bills in this nation. I don’t give a rat’s hip pockets for EITHER party or the fools in either party. I am sick of them all. I have taken to caring about the local issues in my county and state. I am tired of worrying about the national issues because there is absolutely nothing we can do about them. The idiots of the RINO party in Sodom on the Potomac don’t care about us. Only about staying in office and power. I’m sick of the entire mob of them.
Thanks for the common sense. No one has done more to confront the dear leader head-on than Ms. Brewer. What more is she supposed to do - raise an army ?
I'm not sure there's much we can do at this point. It appears the majority of D.C. is pushing hard toward an agenda to reform America.
Three more years of Obozo? Look at what's happened in 4 1/2, particularly in the last 6 months.
Among all the scandals, there is ONE huge scandal. It is called Conspiracy.
All this scandal info poured out in rapid succession on the America people...months AFTER the election.
There has been an enormous conspiracy to get Obozo back into the white house. There are scores of people up in D.C. that knew all of this info months if not years before this election....and hid it from the American people.
If all this had come out months before the election...this big eared bozo would never been elected.
Three and a half more years of this cronyism up there in D.C., I'm not sure this country will be quite as civil.
Just my take.
One thing we can doi is dedicate ourselves to recruiting or converting one new voter for conservative causes. One agnostic, one 18 year old, one disgruntled union member...
This about it -if every one on this board converted just one voter the ripple effect would probably spread to at least 1/2 as many more and we'd soon equal the number Romney would have needed to win.
It should be everyone's goal to dump every liberal and RINO possible in 2014.
That's where we start.
If illegal amnesty thing passes, all of this won't matter. Conservatives will be outnumbered as a voting block.
Evidence of this is found in the last few presidential elections. Our country is pretty evenly split between dems and pubs.
With millions of low income messy-cans given legal status, they will be eligible to bring up to four of their family members here after amnesty. Not being ugly, but do the math.
It would be done.
Thank you for the clear explanation. This is what FR is all about: as your name implies...getting the truth!
Sounds like she did the right thing according to how the citizens had already voted.
The sick and poor need to be weeded out...if the immediate family, or its community can’t solve the problem...why should a stranger to the situation be forced to pick up the tab?
Make it the family’s project or the community via a church...ABOLISH all the government employers and employees that are needed to support the sick and poor parasites...
