House Democrats: ‘Health-care ruling another blow to state’s recovery’



STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Assistant House Minority Leader Steve Farley released the following statement today on the Maricopa County Superior Court’s ruling that upholds Gov. Jan Brewer’s and Republicans’ massive cuts to health care:

“The court's ruling on cutting health care is unfortunate because Republicans’ actions undermined the will of the voters and directly violated the Voter Protection Act. This ruling couldn't have come at a worse time — the economy is tanking again and Arizona families are hurting and struggling to get by. Gov. Brewer's cuts now will make life even harder for these families by kicking them off of health care. All of Arizona will suffer from this ruling; the more than 100,000 people cut off of health care by Gov. Brewer will flood our emergency rooms looking for care that could be handled by physicians. These cuts are not the solution and today’s ruling is not only disappointing, it’s another depressing and harmful blow to our state’s recovery.”
