Survey shows immense support for the referendum on the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion
The United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives released the results of a recent statewide survey that shows immense support for the referendum on the ObamaCare Medicaid Expansion. The statewide survey shows that 69 percent to 70 percent of respondents continue to reject Governor Brewer’s plan to implement the ObamaCare Medicaid Expansion in Arizona.
The survey asked:
Do you believe that the voters should have the opportunity to vote on the Obamacare / Medicaid Expansion in the 2014 election?
(30 percent) No
(70 percent) Yes
(0 percent) Unsure
The survey also shows that regardless of political affiliation, income, or gender people in Arizona believe elected representatives should participate in any law they impose upon the people with an extraordinary 97 percent positive response to the question:
Do you agree that Congress and their employees should be on the same plan as taxpayers?
(02 percent) No
(97 percent) Yes
(01 percent) Unsure
The Governors attempt to ignore the facts that Proposition 204 was a vote on how to spend the tobacco fund and a population increase to 100 percent versus her 2013 Medicaid Expansion bill that is funded by new taxes and increases the population to 133 percent is rejected by a consistent 69 percent to 70 percent of those surveyed.
The survey was conducted from August 19-21, 2013 with on online survey and 541 respondents. The heavily Republican response shows that 72 percent oppose ObamaCare, 69 percent reject a tax increase to pay for it, and 70 percent reject a repeat of the 2010 cuts to education, roads, or public safety.
The numbers reveal a steady pattern consistent with the poll conducted in April of this year by Magellan Strategies, proving once again that Arizona voters reject participation in ObamaCare including the Medicaid Expansion.
URAPC presents the survey as evidence that the referendum will experience the same resounding victory that occurred with the overwhelming passage of Proposition 106 in 2010. The survey clearly shows the Governors attempt to ignore the copious differences between her 2013 Medicaid Expansion and the 13-year old Proposition 204 is rejected by the majority of Arizona voters.
The United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives continues its mission to unite the voters in Arizona to defeat Governor Brewer’s ill conceived and unconstitutional legislation so it can be referred to the ballot and vetoed by the people of Arizona. The Governor and Restoring Arizona continue to openly mock and ridicule the Precinct Committeemen, Small Businessmen, and Hard Working Taxpayers that have taken up pen and clipboard to thwart the alliance of Corporate welfare recipients, greedy lobbyists, and rogue Republican legislators. URAPC grows as those committed to having their voices heard by collecting the required signatures to send this critical decision to the voters.
