Gov. Brewer of AZ says that the state will go broke without the money it will get from the federal government for health care Ironic considering she has spent considerable state money fighting Obamacare.
Gov. Jan Brewer said Wednesday that she does not want U.S. House Republicans to succeed in their bid to shut down the Affordable Care Act, saying it would “devastate” the state budget.But now she says that once it became law she wanted AZ to take all the advantages that go with Obamacare. Like the money it will bring to rural hospitals and the jobs it will help keep and create. Oh the irony.
Brewer said she has never been a fan of “Obamacare.’’ And she pointed out she was among several governors who sued — unsuccessfully — to have it declared unconstitutional.
And here’s the topper.
And she said that made it worthwhile to fight with members of her own Republican Party, to the point of forming an alliance with legislative Democrats, to push the plan through.I love seeing Republicans embracing The ACA and all the good it can do, like helping rural areas and small hospitals which AZ has a lot of. Whatever it takes I’m all for. We just need to keep passing information like this along so people will see the hypocrisy that is the Republican party.
