Will sociopath for Votes

By: Friday July 25, 2014 1:30 am

Jan Brewer, who was a heartless troll of an elected official before it was de rigueur, is back to remind us of the not so original article.

 

Arizona Legislature Passes Bill Legitimizing Discrimination Against Homosexuals

When the going gets tough, the hypocritical and willfully ignorant right-wing-hate-machine in Arizona gets weird.

Report: Governors Engaging In Crony Capitalism Disguised As Economic Development

By: Wednesday October 23, 2013 9:41 am

In a new report, Good Jobs First details the growing use of “public-private partnerships” (PPPs) to promote economic development and the conflicts of interests they carry. Unlike traditional economic development which is run from a department of government (Commerce for example), PPPs allow private interests to borrow public authority to promote an economic agenda. Not surprisingly, that agenda often benefits the private interests that propose it. What was supposed to be a program for economic development quickly devolved into the most base form of government corruption and crony capitalism.

Thanks to Brewer Arizona Will Soon Take Part in Medicaid Expansion

By: Thursday June 13, 2013 1:40 pm

Arizona is going to be one of the few red states to actually take part in the Medicaid expansion. Thanks to the aggressive lobbying by Republican Governor Jan Brewer, the state will take advantage of the Affordable Care Act to enlarge its Medicaid program.

Republican Governors and the Medicaid Expansion: Capitulation or Manipulation?

By: Sunday February 24, 2013 8:30 am

Florida Governor Rick Scott’s decision the other day to go along with the Medicaid expansion next year, after he had previously rejected it vehemently, has been widely interpreted as simply the latest event in a series whereby Republican governors are slowly seeing the handwriting on the wall and capitulating to the hated Obamacare, while also being motivated by one political factor or another; for example, Politico lays it to Scott’s sinking poll numbers.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Backs Medicaid Expansion

By: Tuesday January 15, 2013 11:08 am

Yesterday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed taking advantage of the Affordable Care Act to expand Medicaid to everyone up to 138% of the federal poverty level. While Brewer has been one of the most vocal opponents of “Obamacare,” in her State of the State address she acknowledged that it is the law of the land and must be dealt with as such.

Arizona Won’t Build Its Own Health Care Exchange

By: Thursday November 29, 2012 8:07 am

In a move that should surprise no one, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) officially wrote the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to inform them Arizona will not set up its own health care exchange. This means the federal government will instead need to set up an exchange in the state.

Arizona is just the latest in a long line of states to officially decide to leave the management of their exchanges up to the federal government. Frankly, I consider this a positive development.

DREAM-Eligible Youth Line Up by the Thousands to Apply for Deferred Action Status

By: Thursday August 16, 2012 7:50 am

It’s only the first day, and we’ll have to wait for the numbers over a longer time horizon; but if these lines and these stories are any indication, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program inaugurated yesterday was a wild success.

Arizona Passes Most Restrictive Anti-Abortion Law in Nation

By: Friday April 13, 2012 6:45 am

At the end of yesterday, Arizona’s female Governor, Jan Brewer, signed a bill banning abortions after 18 weeks and creating a new definition of “pregnant.”

Late Night FDL: One Heckuva Week for Body Language

By: Saturday January 28, 2012 8:00 pm

I can’t use the photo, so I will direct readers to their own link and I will direct you NOT to Jan Brewer’s finger (or her mouth for that matter which looks as if she is screaming at the top of her lungs… though perhaps there was engine noise and she just wanted the President to hear what she had to say), but to the President’s right arm and hand (which you can’t see but which you can sort of figure out where it is from the angle and so on). He has moved in and is either putting his hand or trying to put his hand on her arm (perhaps on her elbow). He is trying to draw her in, reduce the distance between them.
