You’ve heard that Arizona ranks 49 in per pupil K-12 spending. On its face, it sounds disgraceful. But that doesn’t mean it’s causal to education outcomes. It also doesn’t mean that Arizona is stingy. There is much more to the story. The Arizona Tax Research Association (ATRA) has put together a 9-page document titled Arizona K-12 School Finance Statistics: Providing Context to a Complex Measurement, that provides factual information relating to the reasons and fallacies surrounding the commonly argued narrative that Arizona doesn’t fund K-12 education adequately.
You’ve heard the mantra, especially from newspaper editorials around Arizona, accusing the Legislature of "disgraceful, seemingly willful abandonment of our public schools." (See Payson Schools facing Tough Competition.) Arizona’s news editors don’t want you to know the "rest of the story," if it doesn’t fit their Leftist world view. What are the facts?
The Arizona Tax Research Association (ATRA) has put together an 8-page document titled Arizona K-12 School Finance Statistics: Providing Context to a Complex Measurement, that provides factual information relating to the reasons and fallacies surrounding the commonly argued narrative that Arizona doesn’t fund K-12 education adequately.
Do you recall the Medicaid Expansion vote, and how so-called Arizona Republican senators and representatives joined Democrats to pass this law in the legislature? Remember Bob Worsley LD25, who voted for the Medicaid expansion, and how he ran as a conservative, even Pro Life? Voters in LD25 were outraged by Mr. Worsley’s "Big Government" votes. His Legislative District leadership even voted to censure him over his actions.
"In just ONE legislative session, Mr. Worsley, raised taxes, voted for Obama-care (the Medicaid expansion) violated Prop 108 (the Taxpayer Protection act), voted against Pro-Life Amendments, voted for taxpayer funded scholarships for illegals (which is also a violation of the law), and he scored the worst of any Republican Senator from Americans for Prosperity–earning the Hero of Big Government award."
Go to www.GilbertWatch.com, enter Worsley in the Search box, and you will see why it’s no surprise that Bob Worsley behaved exactly the way we predicted he would.
Dr. Ralph Heap to run against Bob Worsley in LD25.
An excellent conservative candidate has emerged to run against Bob Worsley in 2014: Dr. Ralph Heap.
“I think Mr. Worsley campaigned as a conservative, and I just don’t feel like he’s responded that way in his time in the Senate,” stated Dr. Heap. “I’m an orthopedic surgeon. I’m particularly disturbed by the Medicaid expansion and the facilitating of Obamacare in Arizona.”
Dr. Heap received his M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1978, and has been practicing for 30 years.
Please come to tonight’s meeting of the Arizona Red Mountain Patriots and meet Dr. Ralph Heap! Tonight’s event is essentially his campaign kickoff, so he’ll have petitions there, campaign literature, etc. Also, the Heap Family Blue Grass Band will be entertaining the audience as well.

I received the following email from Le Templar, Director of Communications of the Goldwater Institute. Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs’ reaction to the word "protest" reminds me of a silly woman who jumps on top of a table upon seeing a mouse. Anyone who knows anything at all about the TEA Party movement knows that it is a conservative group of peace-loving middle-Americans who simply want their representatives to demonstrate fiscal and personal responsibility. They want low taxes, and limited government where free markets flourish. These core values can be found in the Republican Party platform. Since when did the mere mention of these principles strike fear and panic in the hearts of our local politicians?Read more
Why celebrate “Independence Day” when so many American people have no idea what it means? Christmas is the Winter Holiday. Easter is the Spring Holiday. So, should we rename Independence Day? How about Fireworks Extravaganza Day?Read more
