Surrounded by what could be the new, more moderate legislative majority, Gov. Jan Brewer signed legislation Monday to expand Medicaid in Arizona.
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.

Buzz words such as “subsidies” and “loopholes” have been thrown around by politicians for decades.

The Governor’s plan to add more than 300,000 Arizonans to the Medicaid rolls will do nothing more than facilitate and expand ObamaCare. Voters clearly expressed their will to reject implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) via Proposition 106 in 2010. If this expansion goes through, nearly one fourth of all Arizonans will receive free taxpayer-paid medical care. This isn’t a ”safety net” for the poorest citizens. It is an incentive program for socialized medicine.
The Medicaid Restoration plan put forth by Gov. Brewer is a prudent economic option that helps our state stay competitive while serving those who are most vulnerable. We need a solution that works with us to reinstate coverage for those in need, while remaining fiscally responsible by reigning in the out of control costs of uncompensated care. The Governor’s plan is an excellent solution for Arizonans since it allows our hospitals and providers to continue giving the very best standard and quality of care, while reducing stress on taxpayers and the general fund to pay for the costs of uncompensated care.
