Arizona Governor Jan Brewer: The Only Thing I Care About Is Implementing ObamaCare

This story got a little lost over the holiday weekend but it's worth revisiting because it's still ongoing.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has decided her one and only priority is expanding here state's Medicaid program under ObamaCare and she'll veto all other legislation until lawmakers cave and pass it.


Gov. Jan Brewer sent five bills to the scrap heap Thursday in a pointed gesture intended to prod lawmakers into a deal on the budget and her plan to expand Medicaid.

The five vetoes, follow-through on Brewer’s promise to block legislation until her top priorities move forward, capped a tense day that saw some lawmakers receive threats over their support for the plan to provide health care for more of the state’s poor.

In letters explaining her actions, Brewer revealed a growing impatience with the Legislature, which she noted has been in session for 130days and has only five weeks until the constitutional deadline for a fiscal 2014 budget.

“I warned that I would not sign additional measures into law until we see resolution of the two most pressing issues facing us: adoption of a fiscal 2014 state budget and plan for Medicaid,” Brewer wrote. “It is disappointing I must demonstrate the moratorium was not an idle threat.”

Not surprisingly, there are plenty of Repubicans in the state legislature who support Brewer and ObamaCare.

Cases like this and Marco Rubio's immigration lies during his campaign are why conservatives are wary of giving an inch of maneuvering room to Republican leaders in Congress.

There have simply been too many times when the GOP/conservatives have not only tactically retreated but outright gone over to the liberal side. There's little to no trust for most elected Republicans. And for good reason.
