Over the week, members at Mountain Park Senior Living celebrated resident Faye Bali’s 100th birthday.
You would think that a former state senator would understand that you have to cobble together a majority if you want to change things. Tom Patterson (Feb. 25 guest commentary, “GOP ineptitude is exhausting its base”) apparently didn’t get the memo.
To our Governor, State Senate and House, Senators McCain and Flake and the citizens of Arizona.
“To the naive venter that thinks Walmart can afford to pay $10.10/hour since ‘the four Waltons have $33 billion each’: Honey, they aren’t going to use their money to fund the pay increase, they’ll get it from us via higher prices.”
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was holding a series of private meetings Wednesday with opponents and proponents of legislation adding protections for people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays, a proposal that has focused national attention on the state as business groups, gay rights supporters and even many fellow Republicans urged her to use her veto power.
Congressional Republicans are like a pathetic victim of bullying. When faced with a challenge, they draw up into a ball and beg not to be kicked.
The state Senate sent Gov. Jan Brewer controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom on Monday even as two more senators who voted last week for SB 1062 now say that was a mistake.
While the fools fool around, the government’s being stolen away from them.
Saying he's had enough, the state Senate's No. 2 Republican is calling it quits.
Arizonans are still trying to recover from being hit hard during the recession. Our unemployment rate is still too high at nearly 8 percent, and when funding for unemployment insurance expired on Dec. 28, the benefits that kept millions out of poverty vanished as we entered the New Year.
The fees for air tour operators that use technology to quiet the sound of aircraft at Grand Canyon National Park have been reduced.
Sen. Patty Murray is an unashamed spender and taxer. She’s never seen a government outlay she didn’t like and she was in high spirits over the “bipartisan” budget deal she crafted with Republican Rep. Paul Ryan. The deal helps “bring some respect to the word compromise,” she crowed.
As executive director of The Arc of Arizona, an organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities since 1958, I see daily the impact of committed people joining together to advocate for the rights and community participation of people with disabilities.
Sen. John McCain and Mayor Greg Stanton have teamed up with H3 VETS to end chronic homelessness among veterans and give them a roof over their head by Christmas.
President Obama’s decision to defer to Congress the decision about whether to slap around Syria was a pure political masterstroke.
I feel deep empathy for our elected leaders in Congress as they navigate the contentious issue of immigration, and I respect the courage Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have demonstrated as they have attempted to find solutions on this difficult issue.
I am a Boy Scout in Troop 16 and I would like to express my concerns about our government cutting school funding. I also sent a letter to Sen. John McCain because I did not want him to vote yes to the proposed cut in education funding by 20 percent. I did not receive any response from the senator, but I think it is a very bad idea to reduce spending on education.
I think we can all agree that with debt close to 17 trillion, the United States of America is pretty much bankrupt. If we can all agree on this fact, then please explain to me why President Obama and the United States Congress would even consider giving legal status/citizenship to 11 million unskilled, uneducated illegals.
How many years have we been discussing illegal immigration reform? It seems like it has been headline news for the last 10 years. It has been discussed from the local level to the U.S. House, Senate and White House, yet only now has any serious written effort at reform been made.
And so it begins. After six years since the last substantive debates over immigration reform, the Senate Judiciary Committee recently approved the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, the title of the legislation borne out of the months-long work of the bipartisan Gang of Eight, which includes Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake.
Our immigration system is broken, and that’s bad for our country and our economy. As the Senate debates the bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform recently introduced, I hope that Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake will continue to support this important legislation.
When my wife and I tried to park in the designated visitor parking area at Sen. Jeff Flake’s Phoenix office recently, we were told by security to leave or our car would be towed. When we questioned this, as we were there to join with others to hold him accountable for his vote against universal background checks for gun purchases, we were told parking there was for office tenants only. As we were pulling out of the parking lot, security people began blocking all entrances to the parking lot with pick-up trucks and chains.
Arizonans are proud of Sen. McCain because he voted to put our collective interests ahead of gun industry profits.
Washington • Sen. Jeff Flake’s vote against expanded background checks on gun sales earlier this month caused his approval ratings to drop, making him one of the “most unpopular” U.S. senators, a new poll says.
America has almost 12 million illegal immigrants.
