Vote Out Obamacare Republican Heather Carter!

Here is my message to the voters of Arizona’s Legislative District 15:

Hi, This is longtime Republican and taxpayer activist Shane Wikfors with an urgent message to voters in legislative district 15.

Last year I worked tirelessly with Americans for Prosperity and other taxpayer advocate groups to stop the expansion of Obamacare Medicaid in
Arizona.

We were up against the governor, all the democrats, the healthcare industrial complex and a handful of renegade Republicans.

Sadly, we lost that battle but not before warning those Republicans that they would face political discipline in the 2014 Primary elections.

Well that time has come and I’m here to tell you that your state representative Heather Carter, was one of the renegade Republicans who led the effort to embrace Obamacare here in Arizona.

This is our chance to clean house and turn away those Republicans who embraced very bad costly policy.

Heather Carters vote for Obamacare expansion will cost Arizonans hundreds of millions of dollars in new taxes.

According the the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System and the Kaiser Family Foundation, Arizonans will pay $286 Million dollars in new taxes by the end of fiscal year 2016.

Heather Carter is one of several Republicans responsible for this huge tax increase and lowering in the quality of health care.

As this election happens, I ask you to vote out Heather Carter and any of the other Republicans who voted for the Obamacare expansion.

The future of Arizona depends on it.

My name is Shane Wikfors. I wrote and produced this message and I hope you’ll share it with others.

Did Heather Carter Vote to Raise our Taxes?

Shortly, the Arizona Supreme Court will be ruling on whether the Medicaid tax imposed by the Democrats, aided and abetted by Representative Heather Carter and eight other Republicans in the House of Representatives is really a tax or something else, like a fee. The only question that will be resolved by the court is whether that move was legal or not. It will not determine whether it was good or bad. We all know that the mere fact something is legal does not automatically make it good, or desirable.

Whether we call it a tax, or something else, like a fee, an assessment, a contribution, an investment, or any of a myriad euphemistic terms that big government advocates use to disguise taxes, the fact remains that Heather Carter voted for bills that increase the amount of money that moves from the pockets of the taxpayers to the pockets of the government.

That fact is reflected in the results of the legislator evaluations done by three conservative leaning organizations.

Americans for Prosperity (AFP): This organization routinely keeps track of how legislators vote on issues having to do with economic matters, like taxation, spending, education, etc. (scorecard)

Goldwater Institute: These folks evaluate legislator performance across a wide variety of subjects, including tax & budget, education, constitutional government, and regulation.

National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB): This is a watchdog group for small businesses, which account for the vast majority of jobs in this country. They evaluate legislators on whether or not their votes enhance small businesses ability to operate in free and open market. (scorecard)

Currently in Arizona, we have 17 Republicans in the Senate and 36 Republicans in the House of Representatives, for a total of 43 Republican legislators. Let us see how Heather Carter was scored by all three organizations.

ORGANIZATION SCORE RANK
Americans for Prosperity – 48%  or 39th out of 43
Goldwater Institute – 61% or 35th out of 43
National Federation of Independent Businesses – 75% or 43rd out of 43

Conclusion: Heather Carter is a friend of Big Government and an enemy of the tax payer. People should keep that in mind when deciding whether to vote for her or for her challenger(s).

“Mark Brnovich brings a vast background of experience and integrity that is much needed in the Attorney General’s office.  As conservatives, it is time to elect a conservative we will be proud to have emerge victorious from the primary and fight for us in the general election. Tom Horne will be replaced either in the Primary or General Election and as conservatives, I believe we should replace him in the primary. I know Mark will make all Arizonans proud by standing up for us when it matters most.”

His experience as a local, state, and federal prosecutor as well as former gaming director has prepared him to be a fantastic Attorney General. Mark is an all around good man with principles and integrity and will not waver on the tough issues like securing our border, protecting the unborn and the elderly, and will stand up for the rule of law.”
