hcr2007Arizona House Representative Carl Seel, has introduced 3 seperate bills, that would work together to give the citizens of Arizona a chance to vote on prohibiting the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act in Arizona and the expansion on medicaid. First is HCR2007, which would change Arizona statutes by amending Section 1.  Title 20 of the Arizona Revised Statutes by adding chapter 23, to read the following:

This state may not establish or administer a state‑based health care exchange.

2.  The Secretary of State shall submit this proposition to the voters at the next general election as provided by article IV, part 1, section 1, Constitution of Arizona.

Next is HCR2008, which would amend title 36, chapter 29, article 1 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, by adding section 36-2901.10; relating to the Arizona health care cost containment system. This bill simply states the following:

Any statutory or administrative expansion of eligible person, as defined in section 36-2901, does not take effect until the joint legislative budget committee certifies to the governor, the president of the senate and the speaker of the house of representatives that the expansion will be budget neutral for the next twenty fiscal years.

2.  The Secretary of State shall submit this proposition to the voters at the next general election as provided by article IV, part 1, section 1, Constitution of Arizona.

Last, is HCR2009, which would amend title 36, chapter 29, article 1 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, by adding section 36-2901.10; also relating to the Arizona health care cost containment system. This bill deals with childless adults and reads as follows;

Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the administration shall not use monies from any fund established pursuant to this chapter or from the state general fund to pay for services to childless adults.

2.  The Secretary of State shall submit this proposition to the voters at the next general election as provided by article IV, part 1, section 1, Constitution of Arizona.

Carl Seel believes that the citizens of Arizona should decide if they want to participate in the unconstitutional ACA, or not. When I spoke with Representative Seel about his bills, he expressed his outrage for Obamacare and his urgency to remedy the unconstitutional act! He also reaffirmed his devotion for the oath he took to the constitution, repeatedly, by stating that he is “duty bound to uphold it.” Let’s help bring this issue to the ballot, where the decision should be made, by the citizens. Here’s how to help.

ACTION ITEMS

If you live in Arizona, contact your state legislator. Let him or her know your concern for the expansion of medicaid and that you expect their support for this legislation. Strongly, but politely, let them know you want them to vote YES on HCR2007HCR2008 and HCR2009.
