Re: “The Skinny

PP has become nothing more than the NEA. They are a political arm of the democratic fringe party. Sucking up dues and federal funding.

You can read about the Democrats' plans to disrupt GOP town halls at this article here, which includes excerpts from their town hall disruption playbook. http://nypost.com/2017/02/18/obama-linked-…

Re: “The Skinny

Ever try to get through on Rep, McSally's office line? Shunted to voicemail, then learn that her VM box is full. Email? You have to use a lengthy form, then go through the "I am not a robot" dance, with a further level of multi-level security.

This is NOT a congresswoman the least bit interested in what her constituents have to say, just wants to isolate herself from the folks who elected her and pay her salary. Period.

My bet is no one within the city limits of Tucson will ever see her hold a town hall. Elderly (like me) with mobility issues, or don't drive? Forget it.

She is not alone, however. You'll have a very similar experience trying to get through to either Senator Flake or McCain. Voicemail boxes full, and no way to send an email easily. Town halls by either any time soon? 'Tis to laugh.

Re: “The Skinny

John, I do not agree that ACA should be repealed without replacement. What do you suggest to those who Finally were able to become insured? Who do our elected officials work for, only those who contribute large amounts to campaigns and purchase healthcare without subsidies?

Re: “The Skinny

Sad when a politician avoids or refuses to have an open dialog with their constituents just because they are afraid people may have different opinions. I think we deserve better leadership.

She didn't outmaneuver anyone. She's a coward.

McSally could be a dance instructor for the Arizona Sidestep.

Re: “The Skinny

Im sorry but I'm glad she wasn't stupid enough to show up for an ambush. Only a democrap would have fallen for this. This is like inviting a person to stand by a wall used for firing squads and when the person suggests a different place, they call them a coward. Again, a democrap would have showed up.

Re: “The Skinny

I agree with what McSally is doing and I am one of her campaign contributors. We need to completely repeal the "ACA" before anything else. Doing anything other than that falls into the hand of big business.

Re: “The Skinny

Thank you for this information. Considering McSally received and spent $7 million campaign contributions (source OpenSecrets), would she be beholden to her constituents or her contributor? Would she even have a conflict of interest listening to her constituents?

Re: “The Skinny

Isn't this just a slightly re-edited re-posting of an article posted by Jim Nintzel on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017 at 12:38 PM. I noticed it as I cut and pasted "Posted By Jim Nintzel on Thu, Feb 23, 2017 at 12:38 PM"?

Re: “Taking Initiative

Rat T, doing a mighty fine Sean Spicey impersonation:

Make some specious claim with zero to back it up (it's February, Rat. Any restaurant owner claiming that the slightly higher wage put them out of business after one or two pay cycles is LYING to cover up their own bad business model)

When caught screwing up, blatantly lie about it. TGE? TGIF!

Deflect, insult, lie, rinse, repeat. Then sit back and collect the 8-10 likes that you, What the F? and CW can generate between your multiple aliases.

Too funny... #alternatefacts

Re: “Taking Initiative

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUGGESTION, WHERE DO I SIGN UP. I THINK WE HAVE PUT TOO MANY REPUBLICANS IN POWER, THEY ARE BECOMING RIDICULOUS. I WROTE MR. LEACH VIA E-MAIL, DID NOTHING BUT VOICED MY OPINION. HE CALL THE SHERIFF, DETECTIVES CAME OUT, I ASKED THEM TO SIGN MY PETITION TO GET LEACH OUT OF OFFICE. SAID THEY WERE INTERESTED, BUT COULD NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE ON DUTY. THIS AUTHORITARIAN ACTION OF MR. LEACH, WILL HURT OUR SCHOOLS, OUR ROADS, OUR FIRE FIGHTERS, OUR POLICEMAN FROM GETTING WHAT THEY NEED. THIS IS REAL FOLKS, YOU WILL NOT HAVE A VOICE IN ANYTHING!!!!

Re: “Taking Initiative

That is the stupidest excuse I have ever read for anything!

Before you realize it, you're going to be a member of Trump's tyrannical regime.

You're movin' on up Rat.

Make sure to get to the east side and get a de-luxe apartment in the sky.
