The state House conservative Republicans now have had a good taste of what it is like to be on the short end of important legislation. Government works best when the two parties compromise. In this case to get the budget and Medicaid expansion passed as Gov. Brewer, House Democrats and smart liberal Republicans wanted. The conservative Republicans in the House and Senate have had the tables turned on them. These same Republicans have for so long in the majority had all things their way. When a few of their own party turn and do the right thing that affects the people of Arizona they cry and complain about it. I am very sure the people of Arizona are very happy to finally see compromise. Through the crying conservatives that did not get their way this time, they got a good taste of their own medicine. Compromise works.
