Martha McSally is Bad for Military Families

Martha McSally is Bad for Military Families

Candidates, Defense, Immigration & Border, National Politics
Martha used to say "When you value people, you give them freedom." Martha McSally talking to students at National Cathedral School in 2002. Now she is willing to sacrifice the health and welfare of military members’ families by deploying soldiers at the border, solely for political gain. Using the military in this ploy is disrespectful to military members and their families. The troops are being deployed now, but the caravan will not arrive until January. Will the troops stay away from their families for the holidays *just* to perform this political stunt? Here is a reposting of some particularly important tweets from our account today.   By lying about migrant families to unjustly deploy military at the border, Martha is showing she cares more about her political aspirations than she does…

Martha is Bad for the Women of Arizona

Martha is Bad for the Women of Arizona

Accurate Representation, Equality
Martha McSally has truly reached a new low. I know. It seems so hard to imagine that the “Let’s get this f’ing thing done” migrant-fear-monger could sink any lower, but she has. This week, Martha McSally has been called to task for her vote to remove healthcare from 44,000 of her constituents in Arizona’s CD2 in May of last year. Her response: expensive ads claiming that she fought hard for pre-existing condition protections. But that is just the first of many to come. The latest ads intended to wash away Martha McSally's terrible voting record aren't even trying to tell the truth anymore. Now, the poster child for self-serving representation is trying to convince young women that she is their champion! I know. I know you know. But do young…

Arizona GOP Candidate Willing to Go On Record

Arizona GOP Candidate Willing to Go On Record

Accurate Representation, Candidates
Mar 15, 2018 In a political atmosphere that punishes taking stands, we have an Arizona CD2 GOP Candidate that is willing to have his positions on record. And it isn't the front runner, who appears to be laying low in a strategy that is very familiar to Southern Arizona constituents. As an organization, our mission is to educate voters so that they can make choices at the polls based on their values, not the slick PR campaigns that mislead the average voter. We have found that the candidates want to control a narrative that often doesn’t match the reality of their votes and positions. Our purpose is to let people know the truth, in a time when the press is printing/posting press releases verbatim. Or not following up with questions…

Martha McSally Uses White Supremacist Language to Speak About DACA

Martha McSally Uses White Supremacist Language to Speak About DACA

Immigration & Border
Martha McSally Uses White Supremacist Language to Speak About DACA Jan 11, 2018 As Martha McSally’s anti-climactic unveiling of her run for Jeff Flake’s Senate seat looms, it is important to listen to the rhetoric change  in her carefully crafted persona. For years, her constituents have tried to nail her down on issues important to them. She carefully controls her message resulting in voters not really knowing where she stands on most issues, particularly when her rhetoric doesn’t match her votes. But a particularly disturbing trend began when she decided to run for Senate and “leaked” it to her colleagues over 2 months ago.  Trump, whom she had gone to great lengths to distance herself from, was now her new BFF. Laurie Roberts of the Arizona Republic wrote about it…

Pay to Play with Martha McSally – Part 3 My $75 Question

Pay to Play with Martha McSally – Part 3 My $75 Question

Accurate Representation
Aug 29, 2017 By Marion Chubon Martha, you almost had me there when you explained why it took you 4 days to condemn a white supremacist terror attack.  Let me back up. As many people know Congress has been on recess for the entire month of August. Martha McSally has used the recess to rebrand herself as a voice of reason in the healthcare debate. The voice I clearly remember is the one that famously said “let’s get this Fucking thing done” shortly before voting for the AHCA. That bill was the very unpopular healthcare (tax cut for wealthy) bill that the majority of her constituents and stakeholders in the healthcare industry begged her to vote “no” on.   (more…)

Aug 29, 2017 By Kristen Randall ..and it felt like all eyes were on us. No, this isn’t an excerpt from a fairy tale. This is what it felt like as Marion and I entered the large room where the Tucson Metro Chamber was hosting Rep. Martha McSally as their keynote speaker. Marion and I are both business owners, she is a business coach and wholesale artist and I am own and edit a community newspaper. But we are also the President and Vice President of Represent Me AZ Grassroots Super PAC. I didn’t exactly expect a warm reception, but we were assigned some henchmen to watch us through the speech. Since we were seated in the very back of the cavernous room, henchman 1 had to stand against the…

Aug 28, 2017 By Bryna Koch On August 25th I attended Issues Over Easy, an event billed as a legislative update sponsored by the Tucson Chamber of Commerce. Congresswoman Martha McSally, there to provide the legislative update, received the Spirit of Enterprise Award. According to Mr. Jennings Imel, executive director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Western Regional Office, the award is presented to legislators who voted at least 70% of the time with the U.S. Chamber’s interests. The Chamber adds stickers to a hard hat (part of the award) for those legislators who voted with them 100% of the time. Apparently the Congresswoman has earned one of these stickers every year she was eligible. (more…)

Where Does McSally Stand on Transgender Military Ban?

Where Does McSally Stand on Transgender Military Ban?

Defense, Equality, National Politics
McSally's Positions on LGBTQ Rights are Confusing Jul 27, 2017 Martha McSally's positions on the issue of LGBTQ rights are a confusing bag.  As with most issues that aren't related to the border or the A-10, it is hard to unpack her positions.  Yesterday the President set off a storm with a series of Tweets about banning people who are transgender from serving in the military. After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow...... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2017 ....Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming..... — Donald J.

McSally Finally Calls for Civility

Accurate Representation, National Politics
McSally's Recent Cable News Tour Calling For Civility Misses the Mark Jun 20, 2017 Typically when someone speaks about a desire for change, and expresses a shared responsibility for an issue, their next statement, as an act of good faith, speaks about their own missteps. Not so with Martha McSally.  Since the terrible and tragic attack on her GOP colleagues on June 14th that left the shooter dead and 3 others seriously injured, she has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News and in various print articles speaking about how we need to take stock in the current political climate.  In her interview on 6/14 with Joe Ferguson she states “we are all responsible for bringing the temperature down” and on Fox News on 6/17 she muses “what is it that…
