Sedona AZ (July 12, 2012) – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:
Dear Sedona Eye editors,
On Monday former presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry announced Texas would not implement Obamacare, claiming that he “wasn’t going to be a part of expanding socializing of our medicine.”
He and governors like Governor Jan Brewer here in Arizona are standing in the way of health care coverage for millions of people. Will you sign my petition to Governor Jan Brewer and pass it on?
The petition says:
“Despite the Supreme Court ruling that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, Republican governors are considering refusing billions in Medicaid funds that promise to insure millions of lower-income Americans without health care. Arizona’s Governor Brewer is currently considering whether or not to implement the ACA. The court found that while the Medicaid provision is constitutional, the federal government cannot take away federal funds from states that refuse to open the program to more residents. By refusing to open the program to more residents, Governor Brewer will sentence many residents of Arizona to bankruptcy, unnecessary health problems, and, for those folks with pre-existing conditions, possibly even death. Please sign the petition and ask Governor Brewer to do what is right for the people of Arizona. Implement the Affordable Health Care Act in full! ”
