Bob Worsley Backed by Health Care Industrial Complex

The latest campaign mailer from Bob Worsley is a classic example  of  political quid pro quo. Those Republicans following the contest for the state senate in LD-25 probably received Worsley’s mailer in the last day touting the support of the healthcare industrial complex.

Let me explain.

Last year during the debate on the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, a minority of Republican legislators abandoned principle and joined with every Democrat in the Arizona Legislature to pass the federal program. Despite weeks of warnings and citizen lobbying, this cadre of Republicans were promised “protection” and big dollars by the Governor and the healthcare industrial complex.

Well, the time to deliver is now.

Worsley’s piece shows him surrounded by medical professionals (which we don’t have a problem with). But what is very revealing is a quote by Peter S. Fine (see below).

Bob Worsley Mailer

Fine is the President and CEO of Banner Health. With the passage of the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, access to the billions of dollars in taxpayer dollars was granted to Arizona hospitals. Part of that legislation also included giving the head of AHCCCS authority to establish a bed tax for Arizona hospitals. This is all part of the Medicaid funding scam that the State of Arizona works out with the federal government and Arizona hospitals. Here’s a video to explain how the scam works:

Let’s just say that Arizona hospitals such as Banner have a lot to gain by the new Obamacare Medicaid expansion here in Arizona.

Is it any wonder then that the President and CEO of Banner Health Care would be lending his support to Bob Worsley?

That’s how corporate cronyism works here in Arizona.

East Valley Pro-Life Leaders Endorse Ralph Heap for State Senate

Every election year there are a number of candidates that proclaim themselves to be “pro-life” Many of these candidates are seeking
re-election so it is important to clarify what pro-life actually has meant to them by their past voting record.

As precinct committeemen in LD-25 and ardent pro-life advocates we are concerned that the voting public is being tragically misled by some candidates seeking re-election that continue to profess a pro-life stand but their voting records scream otherwise!

Planned Parenthood’s (the largest abortion provider in the Nation) latest annual report indicates it had a record year when it came to funding from the government, receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer dollars (an increase of $60 million last year) by way of MEDICAID reimbursements, government grants and contracts. This amounts to almost half of all Planned Parenthood’s budget.

Medicaid Expansion, regardless of how noble and caring this program appeared on the surface, in short, is nothing more than the linchpin of Obamacare
and as it gets fully implemented, the gates will open wide; Planned Parenthood to receive millions more. Therefore, common sense dictates the Medicaid Expansion under Obamacare in Arizona will increase funding to Planned Parenthood. And inevitably, as their funding increases so will abortions while real health-care services for all women will deteriorate!

The cost of abortions (to the babies and the taxpayer) is immoral and we must end it.

“Bad Morality makes Bad Policy” – therefore any representative that voted for the Governor’s Medicaid Expansion simply CANNOT profess to be a pro-life candidate in our estimation.

We are confident that Dr. Ralph Heap, when elected, will stand unwavering in the protection of all innocent life as his profession calls him to do; his first campaign priority to repeal Obamacare in Arizona!

He has our support as our State Senator!

The principal standard used to evaluate incumbents was their voting records on 12 bills supported or opposed by the National Federation of Independent Business during the 2013-2014 legislative sessions. Endorsements for non-incumbent candidates were largely based on the quality of their answers on a questionnaire. These endorsements are formally issued by the NFIB/Arizona Save America’s Free Enterprise (SAFE) Trust, the organization’s political action committee, and represent the culmination of the pre-primary phase of the candidate evaluation process. There may be further endorsements in select legislative and statewide races after the August 26th primary elections.

For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.

Senator Al Melvin Endorses Doug Ducey for Arizona Governor

Senator Melvin: ‘…I am confident that Doug is the very best choice for conservative voters’

PHOENIX (July 3) – State Treasurer Doug Ducey, conservative candidate for Arizona governor and former CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, today announced that Sen. Al Melvin has endorsed his candidacy for governor. Until recently, Sen. Melvin was also a gubernatorial candidate

“I ran for governor because Arizona needs a strong conservative to lead our great state. While my campaign has ended, my fight for conservative values continues,” Sen. Melvin said. “When I withdrew from the race I made it clear that I had no intention of playing spoiler or of even accidentally helping to elect a liberal Governor. I would put my shoulder to the wheel to elect the best possible conservative candidate.

“That is why I am endorsing Doug Ducey for governor. After traveling our state and sharing the stage with so many of our fine candidates, I am confident that Doug is the very best choice for conservative voters,” Sen. Melvin continued. “His background in the private sector, his work as state treasurer, and his fidelity to the principles upon which our country and party were founded separate him from the other candidates.

“I have also been impressed by his grasp of the issues concerning Southern Arizona, which, as you can imagine, is very near and dear to my heart,” Sen. Melvin concluded. “With our state and nation at a tipping point, Arizona conservatives cannot afford to divide themselves into so many camps that we end up losing at the ballot box. I am voting for Doug Ducey to be our next governor and I encourage every Arizonan to join me.”

“I am grateful to receive Senator Melvin’s endorsement today,” Ducey said. “The Senator is a man of strong character, a consummate gentleman and a consistent conservative. I am proud to call him my friend and am humbled to have his support.”

Wil Cardon SOS

“It’s clear that Cardon has the courage and commitmentto stand up to the Obama adminstration”

(Mesa, AZ)  Conservative businessman Wil Cardon has picked up the endorsement of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.  As Kansas Secretary of State, Kobach has been a national leader for the implementation of measures to improve the security and integrity of voting.  Secretary Kobach is also the lead attorney in the case of Kobach and Bennett v. Election Assistance Commission, in which the Kansas and Arizona secretaries of state sued the federal government to preserve the states’ right to demand proof of citizenship when voters register.

“It’s clear that Wil Cardon is committed to continuing the battle to protect the integrity and security of our elections,” said Kobach.  “Wil has the courage and commitment to stand up to the Obama administration and ensure that Arizona will continue to be able to require proof of citizenship to register to vote.  Arizona and Kansas have drawn a line in the sand against unconstitutional federal interference in the voter registration process.  I’m confident that Wil will continue the fight.”

Joe Farnsworth Endorses Dr. Ralph Heap in LD-25

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, June 18, 2014

As a small businessman for over 30 years, I am always looking for a true conservative who will maintain the principles of lower taxes and smaller government that are paramount in continuing to run a small business and create jobs for the community. When I find that person I want to tell people about him or her and do what I can to help  them in this difficult and very important endeavor. That person is Dr. Ralph Heap.

With all of the new challenges we face from Obamacare,  local and state taxes, immigration and a whole host of other pressing issues, I feel very strong about having someone like Dr. Heap representing me and my family who I know will not continue to take us down the path of less freedom and more government regulations and higher taxes.

Dr. Heap has proven to be honorable in all of his business dealings and consistent in all of his moral and political convictions.

Now Dr. Heap is wanting to give back  in the political arena as he has done in his medical career and his church and civic responsibilities by helping the less fortunate here and abroad with years of donated medical attention and in his church and other civic service.

Dr. Heap is doing the hard part by running for state senate, now we need to help him help us by getting the word out and donating to his campaign.

We can make a difference at the local level.

I support Dr. Heap 100% .

Joe Farnsworth

Farnsworth Endorses Heap

===

Editor’s note: Dr. Heap’s primary opponent, Bob Worsley, voted for Obamacare for Arizona when he voted for the Medicaid Expansion (a provision of the Affordable Care Act).

During a legislative district meeting when I asked Senator Worsley whether he would support the Arizona Constitution’s Proposition 108 – which requires a 2/3 vote in both houses – before voting for Medicaid Expansion, he said that he would support the requirement. When it came time to vote for Medicaid Expansion in a kangaroo-legislative session, Senator Worsley voted against the Constitutional requirement. He lied to me and the entire legislative district.

This is the reason I am supporting Dr. Ralph Heap for State Senate.

Now, what about that endorsement?

Bad EndorsementsApparently, last week’s posting here on Sonoran Alliance regarding an upcoming endorsement of Scott Smith by Matt Salmon drew the attention of a Yellow Sheets reporter. Because an endorsement of this size and caliber is sure to create a wave in both directions, someone at the Arizona Capitol Times contacted the office of Representative Matt Salmon to confirm the affinity between Salmon & Smith. When the Salmon staffer was asked whether the rumor was true, they would only confirm that such an endorsement would not occur this week – but did not deny that an endorsement was forthcoming.

What apparently was to make a big splash now looks like it will be nothing more than a little ripple for supporters of Scott Smith.

Alternatively, the splash among longstanding supporters of Congressman Matt Salmon may actually be bigger as Salmon finds himself reconciling his support for an Obamacare-supporting, amnesty-sympathizing, Common Core-embracing gubernatorial candidate in Scott Smith.

Congressman Salmon probably needs to hear from his constituents and asked to reconsider such an irreconcilable difference before its too late. As we all know, elections have consequences.

Free Enterprise Club Endorses Jeff DeWit for State Treasurer


The Arizona Free Enterprise Club PAC today announced the endorsement of Jeff DeWit for State Treasurer. The conservative DeWit is in a tough 3-way Republican primary for the office against two other establishment candidates.

Jeff DeWit’s strong business background and conservative free market principles is what earned him the endorsement from the Club. “Jeff is the type of pro-growth, limited government candidate we need in the Treasurers office,” PAC spokesman Scot Mussi said.

Being a first time candidate, Jeff won’t be the establishments’ choice for the office, but his impressive experience in the financial sector makes him the most qualified for the position. “Simply put, there is only one person with the credentials and expertise to be Arizona’s next Treasurer, and that is Jeff DeWit.”

Rep Matt Salmon set to endorse Scott Smith for Governor

Sonoran Alliance has learned from a reliable anonymous source that gubernatorial candidate Scott Smith plans to roll out an endorsement by Congressman Matt Salmon sometime next week.

For many in the Republican ranks this comes as a shock because Salmon is a strong conservative who rightly opposes Obamacare and Comprehensive Immigration Reform, also known as Amnesty. The former Mayor of Mesa is strongly on record for supporting the Obamacare Medicaid expansion and Comprehensive Immigration Reform (Amnesty). He also opposed SB 1070.

Grassroots activists will likely be perplexed if not angered by the endorsement as Smith tries to re-invent himself using the conservative credentials of others.

Sylvia Tenney Allen Endorses Kwasman in CD1

Supervisor Sylvia Tenney Allen – Dist 3
Former State Senator – Dist 5
Press Release –

Endorsement for Representative, Adam Kwasman for Congress

It’s time for me to speak up about who I am supporting for our Congressional District 1 race. We have three Republican candidates. It’s easy to see that Andy Tobin has been chosen by the establishment as the “anointed one,” but that doesn’t make him the “right one.” I have worked with Mr. Tobin at the capitol, and I know firsthand that he plays the political games I’m tired of.

Gary Kiehne’s background in oil and ranching gives him a good perspective on a few important issues, but my choice for our next Congressman is State Representative Adam Kwasman.

Adam is a young man, 31 years old, who is full of energy, passion and fire. He never stops, he never backs down. He believes in what he says and what he does, and he has the courage to face the beast. We need the smart, vibrant young people of his generation to save this country from the catastrophic debt that is crushing us, from the excessive regulations that kill industry, and from the unceasing attacks on our individual liberties.

Adam loves the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He loves the traditions of his fathers. His integrity and his character are rooted in a thousand years of history and a devotion to Godly principles. I have heard Adam pray, and his prayer warmed my heart.

Adam’s grandfather was the first of his family to be born in America. His great-grandparents had come from Ukraine when they arrived in America they only spoke English in their home because “now we live in America.”

Adam was born and raised in Tucson. He works as an economist, consulting for financial advisors, forecasting how our tax, regulatory, and legal framework affect economic growth. He earned his B.A. (cum laude) from Tulane University and an M.A. in economics from George Mason University. We need economists in Washington who understand the dangers of government debt and the foolishness of printing more and more money.

Adam’s fight for Constitutional liberty began while working at the Cato Institute’s Center for Constitutional Studies. He knows and loves our Constitution and the governing principles our nation was founded upon. He will not play political games. He will stand on principle.

This election cycle, I am looking for someone a cut above the typical political candidate – someone stronger, smarter, and more solid. I’m tired of the usual polished, packaged, glib candidate whom we elect over and over again and who then goes to Washington and breaks our hearts. I am looking for an Adam Kwasman.

Don’t tell me he can’t win. He can if you vote for him. Don’t tell me he can’t raise enough money. He can if you donate to him at www.adamkwasman.com.

We can have a strong statesman in D.C. who will represent us – the people. We can have a congressman who will fight for our issues, who will uphold the Constitution, and who will resist the giddy allure of the Washington elite. We can have someone with a wise understanding of the proper role of government who will be guided by principle, not pressure from special interests. We can have Adam Kwasman. Join me in supporting Adam Kwasman, our next CD1 Congressman.
