O-Brewer-Care : Surrendering Arizona to Obamacare
The Governor who once championed the plight of ranchers on her southern border has created a chasm equal to the landmark in the northern part of her state.
Brewer’s ascent into the national limelight, with the passage of SB1070, is forever tainted by her rapid descent due to the surrendering of the state of Arizona to Obamacare. The Governor of the state that passed a legislative referral to the ballot to amend the Constitution of AZ to prohibit Obamacare and then turned around and sued the Federal government over the implementation of the program is now demanding her own party ignore its core tenets and embrace O-Brewer-Care.
The Republican party disagrees.
The heroine of Arizona has self-inflicted a wound and it is becoming quite a natural wonder. Resolutions opposing O-Brewer-Care from County Chairs were followed by resolutions opposing O-Brewer-Care from County Executive Committees, followed by resolutions opposing O-Brewer-Care from Legislative Executive Committees, followed by resolutions opposing O-Brewer-Care from Legislative Districts.
These are her people. These are her elected Precinct Committeemen. This is the machine and the heart and soul of the Republican Party and it is being ripped out and stamped on. Legislative Districts are at war. Resolutions, counter resolutions, and accusations of misrepresentation of intent are bubbling in the pot.
The Democrats cheer.
On the other side of the aisle the Democrats are tepidly cheering the surprising about face of the reputed solid conservative. 100% of the Democrat caucus is voting for O-Brewer-Care. Her traveling power-point presentations given by AHCCS personal are attended by Democrats and well represented are Progressives and Occupy members.
And in the middle a new group emerges – the Brewercrats. Crossover Republicans supported by and supporting Corporate Healthcare and in some cases, displaying greater fear of the Democrats than their supporters, a group of 5 Senators and 11 Legislators are standing with OBrewerCare and the Democrats. In a historic time with a Republican majority in every State seat and the Legislator, the Brewercrats have chosen to stand against their loyal supporters, watching in LD meetings while the hard-working precinct committeemen vote, often unanimously, for resolutions opposing the Governor’s plan.
The sides are formed. Corporate Healthcare joins with the Governor to lead Democrats, Brewercrats, and with millions of dollars, are running a full-fledged campaign. Their eyes are on the future with the hope to reap, according to some estimates, $2 billion. The other side is the Republican party, Libertarians, nurses, doctors, plumber, waiters, engineers, and small business owners who have passion, a demand to be heard, and who view the Republican tenet of limited government the ultimate goal.
The image of a strong, finger-waving-at-the-President leader gives way to a portrait of a puppet politician surrendering her state and turning her back on the wishes of her own people.
