There's nothing like a self-involved legislator who wants to abuse the legislative body in which he serves for his own personal gain, especially when he is squaring off against another member of that legislative body for the same contested seat. The Arizona Capitol Times (subcription required) reports that Rep. Adam Kwasman (R-Oro Valley), has filed a bill to repeal Governor Jan Brewer's Medicaid (AHCCCS) expansion plan as a ploy to posture himself against House Speaker Andy Tobin in the Republican primary for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. Republican lawmaker proposes repealing Medicaid expansion.
These dueling dipshits should take their fight outside. There is no chance the coalition of votes that passed Governor Brewer's Medicaid (AHCCCS) expansion are going to change their minds. This is all about appealing to the GOP crazy base in the GOP congressional primary. Only a court ruling -- which is still pending -- could upset this balance.
And you know who neither Kwasman nor Tobin give a damn about? The more than 300,000 desperate working poor in Arizona who are now eligible for medical care under AHCCCS, many for the first time in their lives. They are just collateral damage to these dueling dipshits.
