````````There is NO doubt, the Republicans in control of the Legislature, and all of state government in Arizona have funded Corporate Tax Dodges, Tax Cuts and special Corporation legislative favors on the backs of school children and with extreme reductions in funding for Public Education. The children of Arizona are expected to do with less educational opportunities so the elected GOP officals can pay back their wealthy campaign donors. ```````````````````````

Andrei Cherny, Arizona Democratic Party Chairman “Arizona Republicans hold all the power, and they’ve used it for all the wrong things. The result is that jobs are nowhere to be found, schools are forgotten, and our communities are silenced. We won’t stand for it, and we will hold them accountable in 2012 so Arizona can get back on the right track.”

JO HOLT CAMPAIGN CORNER: Ideology As Distraction in Arizona

JO HOLT CAMPAIGN CORNER: Ideology As Distraction in Arizona  

THE MAJORITY OF THOSE IN OUR STATE LEGISLATURE profess the belief that government has just become too big and too intrusive, and that they will work to “shrink government.” But, in practice, they keep pushing the state to take more and more control away from the federal government, even going so far as to ask the voters to support “state sovereignty” this fall. Of course, additional responsibilities require a larger state government than we currently have. Hmm, could it be that some lofty ideology is not driving the decision making process in Phoenix? Sure, the smaller-government mantra sounds good to many voters. But it also serves as cover for a well-worn political agenda focused on money and control.
Our legislators may want to defend their decisions with morals and ideology, but it’s time for the rest of us to simply follow the money instead.
