Here comes the “Brewer Ruins Arizona Team” – the BRAT’s –
to bankrupt Arizona and bring you Obamacare.
Governor Brewer suspended the rules in the House to ram Obamacare and a Democrat unbalanced budget through the legislature. So it is not a surprise that the Governor’s Team intends to bend every rule in the book to prevent the Republican Party from their constitutionally defined right to collect signatures to veto her.
She rolled the Senate.
She suspended the rules and rolled the House.
Watch out PC’s – YOUR TURN.
The Fake Petition
The Governor is PAYING signature gatherers to follow the URAPC alliance to create confusion and lead people to think they have already signed a petition.
The Governor’s team of BRAT’s is weak.
- • They do not have a real petition.
- • They do not have a real Proposition.
- • They are a weak alternative to the passion and commitment found at URAPC.
Details of the BRAT Petition
The BRAT’s are carrying a paper with the title: “Petition in Support of Health Care for Arizonans Who Need it Most.”
The Governor continues her strategy of paying to get her way because she cannot win on principle. Her team has hired w ell known traditionally conservative signature gatherers, folks who have worked for Senator Russell Pearce and Sheriff Joe so they will not work for URAPC.
URAPC has approximately 13,000 petitions throughout the state of Arizona. Small business owners who are proud Democrats are joining the Alliance of Principled conservatives to save their businesses and the jobs they create.

Ben Quayle wants you to work harder and longer to get to your retirement. What gives? This guy has only worked hard for his bowling handicap. Based on pictures he posts on his campaign Facebook page he LOVES to bowl.
Enough of that. Back to reality. Sorry Ben, but it just doesn’t wash with me to reduce the deficit on the backs of us hardworking citizens. It clearly shows you are out of touch with the regular guy out there.
You graduated from law school in 2002 and finally after several attempts passed the Bar in Arizona in 2009. So quit lying saying you’ve been practicing law in Arizona since you’ve moved here.
YOU CANNOT FOOL THE CITIZENS OF CD 3.
And, congressional seats CANNOT be bought here using DC money from cronies of the 1980’s and 1990’s.
We weren’t raised with a silver spoon in our mouth and I don’t believe we want a silver spoon representing us in CD 3.
Go back to taking care of your dad’s assets.
We already know that Social Security is in serious trouble but when the Social Security Trustees begin releasing news that there will be NO Cost of Living Adjustments in 2010, you have to wonder if the end is closer than we realize.
Indicators like that are akin to employers saying no more overtime or pay raises are frozen. It’s usually what happens right before the employer informs everyone of mass layoffs. You simply don’t come out with major bad news at one moment in time.
This will be the first time that the SSA has not provided a cost of living adjustment in 35 years. The Associated Press reports that the COLA will not occur because it is pegged to inflation and inflation was negative due to a reduction in energy costs in 2008.
But the AP report makes no mention of the anticipated dramatic increase of inflation due to the US Treasury printing up and flooding the market with greenbacks.
Watch for this to be a major issue in the 2010 mid-term elections. You can bet this will not sit well with seniors who have paid into the system all their life.
A final note. This is a great example of why individuals should plan for their own future and not rely on the federal government to be there to bail them out. I solidly endorse the growing movement to “Opt Out” of dependency on the government. It’s no longer a matter of “if” but “when.”
Huge hat tip to Josh Berstein at ABC15 for his coverage of the recent Social Security Administration conference/junket at the posh Arizona Biltmore Resort.
This event was held for top SSA managers to help them de-stress over the wages of doing their job. Of course, you paid for it.
I for one am outraged by the use of my tax dollars going to a federal agency which will NOT be around when I retire. With the Obama Administration throwing trillions of dollars toward every other new government program while Social Security goes bankrupt, what makes them think that these new programs will be run any more efficient?
I for one am a part of the growing Opt Out Movement which believes that our government is on the verge of a massive failure. When the ship goes down, I don’t want to be anywhere near it.
One question: While the federal government continues to inject itself into a multitude of industries is anyone asking about the fed’s track record on Social Security? I was under the impression – as were many others – that the Social Security system was going bankrupt and would collapse within a decade. So I ask the question, whatever happened to the issue of Social Security reform? I propose that the federal government allow individuals who want out of the system to get out and do our own thing. For those of you who believe Social Security will be around for you, I’ve got a federal bailout to sell you.
