Greg Stanton debate on NPR this AM

Greg Stanton AZ 9 Congress (D) shreds Republican in debate

I listened to a debate this morning on NPR. Let me tell you, our candidate just shredded the GOP candidate. Greg didn’t hesitate while articulating his accomplishments as Mayor of the 5th largest city in the US, Phoenix.

The moderator controlled the topics, all “bread and butter” AZ voter concerns, health care, taxes and the economy and immigration.
On health care, Greg voiced strong support for the ACA, the importance of covering pre-existing conditions and reducing drug costs. He promised to take action if elected. Mayor Stanton said he lead the charge in expanding Medicare for the City of Phoenix when our state legislature opposed it.

On taxes, job growth and the economy, he shared his successes as Mayor and his desire to introduce meaningful infrastructure projects when elected. He said his focus would be on the middle class, not a tax cut for the corporations and the wealthiest. He correctly stated that the Republican tax cut did not benefit middle class families.

Stanton wisely pointed to the efforts of Senators McCain and Flake who supported bi-partisan solutions for immigration and “dreamers”. He pointed out that a major portion of the Mexican border is on Tribal land and that ranchers on the boarder do not want their land confiscated.

He is the best candidate to represent the interests of Arizona be they Democrats, Republicans or Independents.
