Ms. Barton will discuss the 17th Amendment, education, health care, forest issues, etc. Please hear what she has to say and support her efforts.
Rep. Barton fought valiantly against expanding Medicaid in Arizona. Governor Brewer and 15 Republican legislators conspired with all the Democrats to accept $1.6 billion from the federal government, but only if the state agreed to expand its Medicaid program. As the saying goes, sooner or later the bill is presented. Arizona families will pay for the health care insurance of one-fourth of Arizona’s population. See The Magnificent Arizona Republicans. Rep. Barton is the nineteenth speaker.
The Medicaid expansion will also expand taxpayer paid abortions, even though it is against the law to do so. See Arizona Rep. Steve Smith begs Republicans: "Don’t Drastically Increase Abortions in Arizona." They didn’t listen.
Rep. Barton also stood up to Speaker of the House Andy Tobin, when she wisely pulled a bad bill that he had asked her to co-sponsor relating to water issues. See HB2338 – Regional Water Augmentation Authorities.
The Payson TEA meeting will be held at Tiny’s Restaurant, 600 Arizona Highway 260, Payson, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
