I implore Congressman Schweikert to vote in favor of HR 1731, brought to us by the United Egg Producers and the Humane Society of the United States. This bill will create a fairer egg marketplace, subsequently improving the lives of millions of egg-laying hens. It benefits farmers by giving them standardized guidelines by which to raise their hens, and it benefits hens by improving what’s required of their care. It’s a win-win for animals and consumers and I am counting on Congressman Schweikert’s vote!

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.
