Conservative Precinct Committeemen in Arizona are kicking off a campaign to repeal Governor Brewer’s Medicaid expansion with a petition signing party today at 10 AM in Phoenix.
Following the rally, the group will disperse to canvass the districts of two of the ringleaders for Obrewercare in the legislature.
Even as the ill-considered Medicaid expansion was being brewed in the House, the bizarre policy flip-flop and poor treatment the turncoats gave conservative members led conservative Precinct Committeemen to talk of primary challenges. The Legislative District 1 PCs, who are the voting members of the Republican Party, also issued a press release blasting the move.
At the rally you can learn how to become a Precinct Committeeman.
As Jon Gabriel noted over at FreedomWorks,
But primaries and press releases aren’t the only tools grassroots activists are employing. The recently formed United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives filed paperwork this week for a ballot referendum to stop Medicaid expansion.
The group will kick off the “People’s Veto” with a rally at the State Capitol this Saturday at 10 a.m. Volunteers need to gather 100,000 signatures within the next 82 days to place the measure on the ballot. Summer isn’t the optimal time for activism in Arizona, but voters across the state know that their financial future is worth some sweat equity.
All of this opposition is making Brewer sweat too. Within hours of filing the People’s Veto, the governor’s allies began attacking the URAPC, formed an opposition committee headed by former DC lobbyists, and scheduled a counter rally at the capitol.
If you’re in the Phoenix area, come to the rally, pick up some petitions, and start taking back your party so you can take back your state.
