The truth behind resistance to electric restructuring
In his famous book, “1984,” George Orwell describes “newspeak,” the use of language to fool people into believing the opposite of the truth. You can witness it today in the name of the Arizona Power Consumers Coalition, which opposes restructuring the electricity industry.

At the same time, education, diplomacy, and help to the nearly 100 million people living in poverty in this country get only pennies on every dollar.
Arizona Medicaid restoration makes good fiscal sense
As the leader of a company representing hundreds of health care providers throughout metropolitan Phoenix, I support Governor Brewer’s bold plan to leverage federal matching funds and get health insurance to Arizona’s most economically vulnerable citizens.
Let’s stop funding reckless GOP officials
As a precinct committeewoman from Legislative District 28 in North Central Phoenix, I was once again dismayed and insulted by my own party’s actions. The party faithful toils so hard while party officials squander their labor on undisciplined, mean-spirited name-calling that serves no other purpose than to bolster big egos and small ideas.
