Navajo County Republicans Oppose Andy Tobin as the
Republican Nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Navajo County, AZ –– Navajo County Republicans are dedicated to supporting candidates and policies that promote the ideals of individual liberty, limited government, and free markets. As such, the Navajo County Republican Committee of Arizona passed a resolution on May 21, 2014 opposing Andy Tobin as the Republican nominee for Congressional District 1. Andy Tobin has ignored the conservative platform of the Republican Party, his oath to defend the United States and Arizona Constitutions, and the principles of the Navajo County Republican voters.
Andy Tobin authored and supported specific legislation to enact Medicaid expansion and the further growth of the Affordable Care Act in Arizona. Andy Tobin recently presented his own new plan that would permit Arizona to increase approximately 300,000 to the rolls of the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) as part of Arizona’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
Andy Tobin has voted for the unequal tax subsidization of favored large private corporations, and has been publicly referred to as the “Corporate Welfare King of Arizona” by fellow Republicans. Andy Tobin has also voted for Common Core standards (HB 2425), which limits the educational freedoms of both parents and their children.
Committed unionist Andy Tobin, who has been reported as previously receiving financial aid from organized labor unions, has routinely opposed sensible reforms directed towards both public and private sector labor unions, that have needlessly subjected Navajo County taxpayers with the burden of increased costs and taxes that are the direct result of organized union activities. The inflated benefits and salaries that public labor union employees receive are passed on to taxpayers through the legislative enactment of higher taxes, while similar inflated benefits and salaries that private sector labor union employees (and union bosses) receive, are also passed on to taxpayers through inflated consumer goods and services.
The Navajo County Republican Committee is the third Republican leadership organization in the state of Arizona to recently take action against Andy Tobin. The Executive Guidance Committee of the Maricopa County Republicans passed a resolution opposing Andy Tobin for his “lack of support of key Republican principles by withholding key legislation and the misuse of the Republican Victory Fund,” and the Pinal County Republicans also passed a similar resolution against Tobin.
The Navajo County Republican Committee is an active organization dedicated to registering Republicans to vote, assisting to recruit and retain Precinct Committee workers, and electing principled Republican candidates to office. The Committee works to spread the message of Liberty and Freedom, to shift the Republican Party back to the adherence to the rule of law and the United States Constitution, and to build a grassroots network of citizens who champion our country’s Founding principles.
