Does Obamacare need saving?

May 27, 2015 · 1 Comment 

In the next few days the Supreme Court could rule most O-Care subsidies illegal– if King prevails vs. Burwell – making an already worried Democratic party doubly apoplectic, because the world as we know it just might end.

After all 7.7 million Americans who qualified for subsidies may lose them and the chorus will chant the only way forward will be for Republicans to bail them out by having red states (like Arizona) which had rejected  state exchanges to implement one OR for Congress to keep the status quo & save the law.  Hold on!  Let’s remember what patients will GAIN if they don’t.

NFIB Senator of the Year

June 10, 2015

Sen. Barto named Senator of the Year by Small Business Group 

(Phoenix, State Capitol)—-Senator Nancy Barto received the Senator of the Year Award today from the National Federation of Independent Business/Arizona. NFIB honors two legislators each year for their efforts in assisting small business in our state.

The Arizona state director for NFIB says Senator Barto has been one of the staunchest champions of small business at the Arizona Legislature for almost a decade. “During the 2015 legislative session, Senator Barto took the lead to ensure that small businesses providing home support services for many of our most vulnerable Arizonans would continue free of unnecessary and destructive state government interference,” said Farrell Quinlan. “It is because of Nancy Barto’s leadership and faith in Arizona’s small business owners that countless thousands will continue to receive the care they need, especially as their services become more and more crucial with the Baby Boom Generation reaching retirement age.” Read more »

Dear Speaker Boehner

June 16, 2015 · Leave a Comment 

As the eyes of the nation await the Supreme Court’s imminent ruling, 36 members of the Arizona Legislature, including myself, took time to sign the following letter, encouraging Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell not to bail out the flawed and harmful law that is Obamacare, but to enact health care policies that benefit all Americans.

April 17, 2015

Dear Mr. Boehner and Mr. McConnell:

The state of Arizona, and the entire nation, is awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision on the King v. Burwell case challenging the legality of taxpayer-funded subsidies for enrollees in federally-run health insurance exchanges established through the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare.

Arizona declined to establish and fund a state-run exchange. We were unwilling to subject Arizonans to the high operating costs, expanded bureaucracy, additional employer mandates, narrower provider networks, and greater Internal Revenue Service intrusion that would result from creating such an exchange.

Our position has not changed, and it will not change. Read more »

Women should not be lied to

June 24, 2015 · Leave a Comment 

Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood is suing to be able to continue to do just that.

You see, SB 1318 was signed into law this session.  The bill’s purpose is to ensure women seeking abortion are informed that it may be possible to reverse a medication abortion (aka Abortion Pill or RU-486), but that time is of the essence.  Planned Parenthood advocates opposed the bill, and now are suing.

This is just the latest in a series of legal actions pro-abortion advocates have taken when the expectation is to fully inform women about their preborn and abortion.  Fortunately, of 34 measures designed to fully inform and protect women and their unborn children, 31 have been upheld by the courts and are in force today.  Only 3 are not.

So where does Planned Parenthood lying come in?  Here’s what happened…  Read more »
