Here’s a reply from Raúl Grijalva to Kirk Adams. Adams sent a snippy letter to Grijalva after Grijalva asked for a public comment period before the federal government allows Arizona to cut people from Medicaid. Money quote:
He accuses me of grandstanding. If sticking up for your constituents when their lives are at stake is a publicity stunt, then I don’t know what Mr. Adams will do the next time his constituents need help. Sit silently and applaud while their health care is taken away for the sake of a corporate bailout? Congratulate Gov. Brewer on a good day’s work?
By the way, Adams’s letter makes reference to this move being done to balance the budget. The house under his leadership has yet to balance a budget and passed a corporate tax cut that blew a hole in state revenue to the tune of $538 million.
