The fight to expand Medicaid in Arizona continues as Gov. Brewer pushes the Legislature to pursue legislation to expand coverage to include folks up to 133 percent of poverty guidelines.
There are so many reasons for the Legislature to approve Gov. Jan Brewer’s proposal to expand Medicaid that it is hard for me to believe that any elected official would put ideology before the good of their constituents and the state of Arizona.
Saying there are technical problems with the proposal, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed legislation Friday which would have allowed individuals to shop around for the best price on health care needs.
According to the Government Accountability Office, the federal government operates 50 different programs for the homeless. There are 23 programs in housing, 26 for food and nutrition, 130 for at-risk youth. They also operate an astounding 342 programs for economic development, which government is notoriously bad at anyway.
After attending a political meeting the other night, I’m convinced some people have forgotten what our great nation is all about. Have we forgotten “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?” Once upon a time, those God-given rights were the reality of life for this free nation.
Sorry, but Nancy Pelosi is wrong. We do have a spending problem and the heart of the matter is our inability to control medical costs. Spending on health care now consumes an astonishing 18 percent of our total economic output. Rising Medicare and Medicaid costs are the main drivers of our national debt crisis. Yet health care costs continue to shoot up relentlessly.
Boy, do I feel sorry for smokers these days. Smoking used to be so fashionable and hip in the James Dean and Steve McQueen days.
Saying they are being crushed by the cost of patients unable to pay, hospital executives rallied Wednesday to back a plan by Gov. Jan Brewer to expand the state’s Medicaid program.

Parting ways with her own Republican Party, Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday proposed expanding Arizona’s Medicaid program to take advantage of the federal Affordable Care Act.
It may sound like a movie title. But the issues that are going to dominate the upcoming legislative session are guns and money.
Nancy Pelosi once famously advised some questioners to not bother being too curious about Obamacare, then under discussion: “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it,” she told them.
I am so tempted to write the words “I told you so” over and over again up to the 500-word limit allowed for a commentary in this newspaper. It would be so easy to gloat about how liberals won and conservatives lost. It would make me giddy to point out how Arizona is so out-of-touch with the rest of the Left Coast.
This is my rebuttal to Mr. Raul Gomez (“Vote and make the correct choice,” AFN, Oct. 28).

Why are you running for office?
So, women voters are being courted via the political conventions, as they should be. If you’re interested, note which party believes women can be suckered through fear and freebees. Expect massive efforts towards manipulation.
When Democrats accuse Republicans of wanting to “end Medicare as we know it,” they are right. But Democrats do too. “Medicare as we know it” is no longer an option.
Too bad Brian Beck had to waste space on the Opinion page with 10 lines stating how bad Republicans write without anything useful to offer (“Where are the Democrats?” AFN, July 18).
Arizona utilities, developers and other special interests are fueling a political action committee formed by Gov. Jan Brewer to help elect federal candidates who share her views on immigration and states' rights.
June has proven to be a strong month for the Obama campaign. The president’s support for same-sex marriage, his executive order on immigration reform and the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare has put Team Romney on the defense as evidenced by Romney’s “flip-flop” on whether the individual mandate in Obamacare is a penalty or a tax.
Legalization of something does not necessarily make it a good idea. It was once legal to own a slave. Democrats who voted against abolishing slavery in 1864, have been doing their part ever since to enslave Americans to one social program or another. Obamacare is just the latest example.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld virtually all of President Barack Obama's historic health care overhaul, including the hotly debated core requirement that nearly every American have health insurance.
