Arizona Governor – Health Care Legislation Violates 10th Amendment

At last count, 14 Attorneys General, Republican and Democrat are investigating this legislation [federal health care reform] for violating the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

As you know, in the past, I successfully joined the Legislature and Superintendent Tom Horne to represent the State of Arizona against the Arizona Attorney General at the U.S. Supreme Court in the Flores case. Today, if our Attorney General will not join this effort to defend the State of Arizona against this infringement on States rights — I will.

Until then — I have a simple message to every member of our delegation, for the good of our state — just vote “NO”.
