Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus was one of the chief authors of Obamacare. He helped write it, he voted for it, and he thought it would be great for America. That is, until he started listening to his constituents three years later. At an April 2013 Senate Budget Committee hearing, Baucus said of Obamacare that he saw “a huge train wreck coming.”

PHOENIX — A call Thursday by President Obama on the Republican-controlled House to approve immigration reform this year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer.
One could conclude the Democratic Party has swung too far to the left and peril awaits them in up-coming elections. Debt is no longer fashionable; a tool many bragged was trendy. One need not look far to see citizens across the land rising in revolt to the status quo.
U.S. Sen. John McCain faced a tough crowd largely opposed to military action in Syria during a town hall meeting Thursday in Phoenix.
Members of the crowd hold up signs against military action in Syria as U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks with constituents during a town hall meeting at the Burton Barr Central Library, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013, in Phoenix.

I found that going to a Matt Salmon town hall Meeting is a test in real frustration. He tells his constituents what a great job he is doing. Then he proceeds to tell us how he is continuing to fight to “defund” Obamacare, which as we all know is a waste of time and our taxpayer dollars.
Sen. John McCain is trying to convince Arizona business leaders to support immigration reform by touting its impact on the state's economy.
Joining the world of politics was not something Chandler Representative Javan “J.D.” Mesnard planned for years in advance.
Paul Ryan, U. S. Representative, Chairman of the House Budget Committee and former vice-presidential candidate, recently declared that the federal war on poverty “has failed miserably.” No one argues. During the fifty years since President Lyndon Johnson first promised to end poverty, the United States has wasted $15 trillion; 46 million Americans live in poverty and 15 million more receive food stamps than before the 2007 recession started.
Congressman Matt Salmon claims to be concerned with “the erosion of our constitutional rights,” according to a recent press release on his sponsorship of the LIBERT-E Act. While he appears to have a legitimate concern for constitutional rights and liberties, his voting record begs to differ.

DOVER, N.H. — Thirty months after she was shot through the head, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords sits in a New Hampshire restaurant facing parents of children killed in the nation's latest school shooting.
I applaud the headline over Tom Patterson’s guest commentary, “U.S. involvement in Syrian conflict a lose-lose proposition” (June 30, 2013), that protests yet another blundering intervention in the Middle East but who in their right mind does support this aggression? Then I remembered U.S. Sen. John McCain’s May 2013 trip to that war-torn land to meet with rebels and his promise of American support for their cause. Also Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, has been begging for U.S. military action for the past year. And please, do not forget the French, who seem eager for the U.S. taxpayer to fund another war.
Issues related to Medicare and Social Security were the emphasis of a town hall hosted by CD 9 Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in Tempe.

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.
