Re: “Open Season

Perhaps Marquez-Peterson is the best candidate the Republicans are likely to have but she is a good bit more conservative than the district and has too extensive a record to be able to pull a McSally and avoid substantive discussion of the issues.

Re: “The Power of Positivity

I was on TIHAN's Board of Directors when the idea of the Poz Cafe was brought to us. I was skeptical, not at all confident it would succeed. Sometimes it's marvelous to be proved wrong! Congratulations and thanks to all who have contributed to the 25,000 meal success of Poz Cafe.

Re: “The Skinny

I received this letter from McCain dated 9-19:

Thank you for contacting me to share your views about health reform. I appreciate knowing your thoughts on this very important topic.

Since the enactment of Obamacare more than seven years ago, Americans across the country continue to see the consequences of this disastrous law. In Arizona alone, the cost of midlevel health insurance plans on Obamacares marketplace increased by 116 percent on average last year. Worse still, before Obamacare, Arizona had 24 insurance companies selling plans on the individual market. Today, there are just two companies and 14 of Arizonas 15 counties have just one insurer. That is not what President Obama promised when this bill was signed into law, and why the status quo is simply unacceptable.

As you may know, earlier this year I voted against the so-called skinny repeal amendment because it would not have accomplished what I have been promising Arizonans for seven years, and that is to repeal and replace Obamacare. While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacares most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens.

As we move forward, it is critical that Congress not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacares collapse, including in my home state of Arizona where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are fleeing the marketplace. We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of aisle, heed the recommendations of our nations governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people. Ultimately, the final product must be based around the fundamental value of freedom, and Obamacare is not.

Thank you again for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other comments or questions.

Re: “Flake Loves Him Some Cruzcare

I had thought of Flake as somewhat moderate until he started touting his A+ ratings from some of America's farthest-right organizations, beginning with the NRA, in his fear of a primary challenge from the wingnut right, aka Kelly Ward for one. Every true independent voter in Arizona better be ready to go to the polls in November 2018, dragging along a lazy Democrat, to vote for whoever wins the Democratic nomination.

Re: “Flake Takes a Turn To the Right

The 'right turn' is nothing new. All year long Flake's messages have been reminding people of his extremely high ratings from such radical right organizations as the NRA. How's this make you think of him?

Sen. Flake's lifetime scores with some of the country's leading government watchdog organizations:

National Taxpayers' Union A
National Right to Life 99%
Americans for Prosperity 98%
Club for Growth 97%
Citizens vs Government Waste 97%
FreedomWorks 95%
American Conservative Union 94%
