By Susan Leeper:

On June 22, 2013, the United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives organized a kickoff rally and signing ceremony for a petition drive on the Capitol Lawn in Phoenix.

Comprising the alliance are Republican precinct committee members, small businesses, and hard-working Arizona taxpayers to stop Governor Brewer from bringing Obamacare to Arizona.

Volunteers around the state will be collecting 100,000 signatures by September 8 to stop the expansion of eligibility for Arizona’s Medicaid program called The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) beginning January 1, 2014. The petition is for the purpose of putting this expansion to a vote by taxpayers for approval or disapproval in the November 2014 election.

Details are available at urapc.org.
