Saturday was a successful event on the Capitol Lawn for the official launch of the People’e Veto by the United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives. URAPC filed a referendum to veto Governor Brewers Medicaid Expansion on Tuesday and within four days over three hundred Conservatives marched upon the Arizona Capitol. The stunning realization that the Governor’s attempt to contain her actions within the Capitol echo chamber and starve the public of her misuse of the veto and special session has been a failure. The people understand the Governor is surrendering Arizona to Obamacare. Armed with a pen they came ready to begin to battle an out-of-control Governor and to stop Obamacare in Arizona. 2500 pre-pledged petitions were quickly dispersed to Republican legislative district leaders and the remaining 2500 begin flying off the table.
Defying the media narrative that the heat would be too daunting, the Liberty Caucus and Tea Party organizations from across the state joined the Republican Precinct Committeemen solidifying the United Republican Alliance mission to unite Principled Conservatives. The mission is to veto Governor Brewer’s ill conceived and unconstitutional legislation. The people of Arizona are not threatened by the Governor, her greedy lobbyists, or the crony capitalist intimidation tactics her and her ilk utilize. They know they represent the majority in Arizona and that they are the last defense against Obamacare.
Armed with petitions and pens the troops are marching into communities gathering signatures. All Arizona registered voters can join them and get a petition. www.urapc.org
