Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a law expanding the state's Medicaid program following her victory over conservatives in her own party opposed to embracing a key part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
WASHINGTON — Mounting scandals at the Internal Revenue Service are jeopardizing critical funding for the agency as it gears up to play a big role in President Barack Obama's health care law.

It's no news to anyone that I disagree strongly with President Obama on just about any issue or policy position you can name.
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.
There was a time when conservative Republicans could get whatever they wanted through the Arizona Legislature.

President Barack Obama says he is hunting down terrorists by using the Patriot Act to tap our phones and read our email.
Not waiting for formal gubernatorial approval, foes of her Medicaid expansion already are moving to undo at the ballot box and in court what they could not block at the Legislature.
As Yogi Berra said, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”
I heard Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and others state that President Barack Obama could NEVER be impeached under any circumstance because the American people will not kick a black man out of office. Is America that morally bankrupt? One person said he would not be impeached even if he committed murder. That is true, because the murder of four Americans can be laid squarely at his feet.

At Congressman Matt Salmon’s Town Hall meeting in Gilbert, I asked him why is he and the rest of his colleagues keep trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care)? It has been tried 37 times now to the tune of $55 million of tax payer dollars! He is wasting time and our money using scare tactics to his constituents that simply are not true. His response was he is going to continue to try to repeal Obamacare. No matter what it takes!! That plainly tells me he does not care about spending taxpayer dollars on something that will not pass and using false pretenses, but yet he is the first one to complain about government waste and spending.
