If Tobin thinks it's a good idea to put Medicaid expansion on the ballot, he's wrong. I predict it will pass overwhelmingly, especially in the rural areas and southern Arizona, where people actually have a heart. Then there's Maricopa, which loves the then then, outgoing Brewer...so don't count them out, either. It's a winner, in any case. Bring it on, Tobin. I see you trying to overturn it after the next election...unsuccessfully, because me thinks there will be a Democratic Governor who will veto your butt, even if you did get the votes.
I'll bet if they did a background check on Flake we would find out that he was a cereal.
Hey at this point the ONLY person we have any hope with on the BOS is Ms.Miller! The rest of them are on the "county payroll" for the long haul and follow blindly what the county administrator wants.
JCC how civil of you. Have you even seen the supervisor meetings? Mrs. MIller has been asking questions at every meeting, asking about where funds are going if there is a way some here or there, to put thse savings into the roads. I have sent emails and her staff has helped in many more ways than Ann Day ever did. Anyways what was the big deal even just one study session (all other counties in AZ have them for budgets) was it really such a bother to the other Board Members?
Hardly surprising that Ray Carroll and Ally Miller have some conflicts. I'm a Democrat, but I also believe that Carroll has been a fair and responsible Supervisor. Ally Miller, on the other hand, is a divisive and unpleasant human being - much like many of her Tea Party supporters.
Time will tell whether the Sandy Hook shootings were a transforming moment for the country—or if some future, horrific mass shooting has a similar effect. Bill says: How dare you and those pushing their gunophobia use the emotions of tragedy to push your snake-oil! What part of the proposed Bill would have done NOTHING to stop a Sandy Hook don't you understand? This type of dishonest reporting has the Medias popularity just below "pond scum." The lies used to garner support for this Bill have been over the top! Thank's for Jeff Flake’s being honest and not a part of the scam Bill mob, the Bill that admittedly by those who supported it did not one thing to prevent a Sandy Hook, not one thing! Let’s focus on the real issue and that is how to keep the mentally ill from killing us with whatever weapon they conjure up to use! Stop with the lies to push your Gunophobic platform. Democrat voting areas have a 650% higher gun murder rate, they also have the strictest gun laws, the answer any sane person can see isn’t more of the same, another law especially one that only focused on 1.9% of the guns used in crime! It is a NEW approach one based on profiling mental health for those who would kill! Jeff Flake called that Bill what it is, a scam politicians were using to placate a ginned up gunophobic mob who wanted anything to be done even if what was done didn’t do anything! Thanks Jeff for daring to bring that fact to light, to bad most of those who are involved are too emotional to see clearly what they are trying to do is foolish!
There are over 20,000 gun laws on the books across the USA. The Justice Department under Eric Holder has told federal prosecutors to ignore "low level firearms crime." This includes answering questions on form 4473 with a lie, like Mark Kelly did when he purchased an AR-15 recently. These paper violations are felonies and are prosecutable if the feds had any real intent to do their jobs. Remember Columbine? The assault weapons ban was in effect at that time, didn't prevent any killings. New laws are only going to be followed by law abiding citizens, criminals do not care. New laws will have no affect and in this instance, maybe, just maybe, Flake is correct.
What I am hearing from Flakes "No" vote comment is the another life lost due to another gun related death is not worth additional paper work?
Why should we have to wait six years to have another vote?
Flake also needs to acknowledge his total failure as part of the Gang of 8 on immigration reform. Again, he sucked up to the Nativists and ignored the will of the majority.
Some of us had hoped Flake would be a leader, but all we got was another politician.
Jeff Flake -- one term senator.
