Tea Party lawmakers and governor sweeping money intended to help with the mortgage crisis to finance irresponsible budget
By Arizona House Democrats at 5:14 PM
“This settlement was supposed to provide $97.7 million for state foreclosure prevention programs,” McCune Davis said. “All of that money should be used to help families. Not a penny should go to subsidize the governor’s unrealistic budget. That’s why tomorrow I intend to offer an amendment that would remove this item from the Republican budget proposal.”
