From Independent Women’s Voice -
“Have you had your health insurance plan cancelled by ObamaCare?
I have. Check it out:
You can find my letter and others at our new website, MyCancellation.com.
We know that ObamaCare is causing this happen to people all across America — your family, your friends, your co-workers, your employees. Maybe even you.
Take a picture of yourself with your cancellation letter and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Don’t worry — we’ll make sure you keep all of your private information private! Who do you think we are? The government?)
Let Washington see the faces of all the people who were told they could keep their plan if they liked it, who really can’t. All thanks to ObamaCare.

We all know how challenging social life can be when your friends, maybe even your family, don’t agree with you on – frankly – ANYTHING political.
Whether at the dinner table or sitting at your favorite local hangout, no matter what anyone says to the contrary, politics does and will come up in conversation. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to enjoy an evening out with people who think like you do?
If you are looking for casual political conversations with a distinctly conservative bent, then come join us for our first ever TRW After Hours event.
You do not have to be a member to attend, you do not have to RSVP, you do not have to donate or buy a raffle ticket. There are no scheduled speakers, but candidates and officials are more than welcome to join in for the fun. Just bring yourself and a friend if you think they would enjoy it.
Conversation is open to all topics, there is no agenda.
This month, we will be at Spokes on Southern from 6PM until 9PM on Friday the 15th and again on Monday the 18th from 9PM until 11PM (right after our meeting at the Pyle Center).
We look forward to seeing you there!
Don’t forget that this month’s meeting has been moved to the 18th, same time (6:30PM), same place (Pyle Center).
Our guest speaker this month will be Superintendent John Huppenthal.
We will also be having this year’s board elections. We are still looking for a Recording Secretary candidate, so if you would be interested in running and holding a voting position on the board, please let us know ASAP: email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you all there!
From AFP – “
When considering school district override questions for maintenance and operations (M&O), AFP-Arizona does two things:
1) We do the math to see how much money is already available within those districts, and how much money the district could potentially get into its classrooms, to have adequate classroom facilities and to pay good teachers what they’re worth. In most cases, districts already have enough money to put two teachers in every classroom — one teacher, and one special education instructor (not necessarily based physically in the same classroom) to work with the handful of IEPs in an average classroom. Unfortunately, the available money has trouble actually trickling down into classrooms, with too much spent on administration, soft capital, and a wide range of non-classroom services. For (much) more on this topic, scroll down to the section below on “AFP-AZ Guide to Wasted Money in AZ’s K-12 School System.”
2) We compare per-pupil funding in a given district with the per-pupil funding for charter schools. The average district has more per-pupil resources than a charter school does and most districts have significantly larger student populations, meaning that they should be able to achieve economies of scale to offset greater regulatory burdens. If a school district spends significantly more per pupil than a charter school does, that should be a red flag in the mind of the taxpayers and voters in that district.

Landrum Taylor said there is no valid reason to remove her, since her leadership team had been effective in the last session.
“This is the most arrogant, inconsiderate group of individuals I have been a part of and I will never set foot in that caucus room again,”

Don’t forget this month’s meeting. Rural/Southern at the Pyle Center. 6:30 to 8:30, tonight. See you there!
“It was a difficult session at the Arizona Legislature for free market activists in 2013.
While Americans for Prosperity and its activists were disappointed to see Governor Jan Brewer’s ObamaCare Medicaid expansion pass through the Legislature, there were many things to be excited about. We won victories for medical price transparency, school choice, and tax and pension reform. And many good Legislators fought the good fight against the Medicaid expansion.
To celebrate the conservatives who have found for limited government and sound fiscal policy in Arizona his year, Americans for Prosperity will host its Awards Luncheon on Saturday, November 16th from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort . Our keynote speaker will be Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal, sponsored by the Leadership Institute, and we will present our Barry M. Goldwater Legislator of the Year Award to Senator Judy Burges, who earned the highest score on AFP-Arizona’s 2013 Legislative Scorecard. In addition, AFP-Arizona will honor those Legislators who earned the designations of Heroes, Champions, and Friends of the Taxpayer during what was one of the most contentious sessions in recent memory.
Our sister organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation, will present the John W. Dawson Local Hero Award to Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio for his tireless efforts to protect Phoenix taxpayers from high taxes and overreaching union power. AFPF-Arizona will also present an award to our 2013 Activist of the Year.
Tickets are $20. If you would- like to attend, RSVP to our Director of Outreach, Shane Wikfors, at 480-332-3440 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, use our eventbrite link: http://JackalopeAward.eventbrite.com.
You can pay for the luncheon by bringing a check to the luncheon, or by making a $20 contribution to AFP at this link: http://www.americansforprosperity.org/arizona/donate-2″;
