Assistant House Democratic Leader Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement:
“Gov. Brewer’s lawsuit is a cheap political stunt, spending taxpayer dollars on a baseless lawsuit that has no legal merit whatsoever. This is a failure to lead when Arizona’s kids and seniors need quality and affordable health care the most.
“Brewer is trying to turn to the courts to block tax cuts for small businesses, expanding coverage to 32 million Americans and ending the worst practices of the insurance industry.
“Her lawsuit is based neither on fact nor on the law. Instead, it is based on political motivation at the expense of Arizona taxpayers. Brewer clearly is playing games with public resources in order to score political points.
“The bottom line is that this week, President Obama signed into law landmark legislation to reform our broken health insurance system, expand coverage and bring down crippling costs for all Americans, including Arizonans. Her lawsuit has no merit and will not stop these historic reforms from taking place this year.”
